Touching Unclean Animals

We know the Law commands to not eat unclean animals, but additionally, we are commanded to not touch unclean beasts when they are dead. However, living unclean animals are not a problem.

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] My friends seem to see some kind of inconsistency in the text, however, the meaning of the text is pretty clear. Even if the text does not say "to touch" dead unclean swarmers or creepers, it most certainly implies that. Touching a dead mice or even cockroach would make you unclean until the evening and you have to wash yourself as well.
