Why are buffalos sacrificed at Kamakhya Temple?

The ritual of animal sacrifice has been practiced since the Vedic times, and has also been incorporated in many non-Vedic rituals. The sacrifices are usually seen as offerings for the Mother Goddess-- an important aspect of her worship. Another reason might be, that goats and buffaloes are chosen as they are not considered as sacred as the cow.

There are many animal rights activists who are against these ritualistic slaughterings, but are unable to make a difference since the state of Assam has not implemented the Animals and Birds Sacrifice Prohibition Act.
Yes,that's the problem,I just wanted to know what could be the reason since I saw very recently the Buffaloes are sacrificed at the temple & was shocked to see the process!!!!!!
