Raw mutton is a food item dropped by sheep when killed.



Adult sheep drop 1–2 raw mutton when killed. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 1-5 with Looting III. If killed while on fire, they drop cooked mutton.

Raw mutton can be found in 48.6% of village butcher chests in stacks of 1–3.
