4:15 VE SAMCHU ZIKNEY HA EDAH ET YEDEYHEM AL ROSH HA PAR LIPHNEY YHVH VE SHACHAT ET HA PAR LIPHNEY YHVH
KJ: When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD his God concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;
Yet again it is stated explicitly: he who has committed the sin must conduct the sacrifice. Taking one's family goat for slaughter may well be difficult, but much easier if you can just hand it over to the slaughterer, and let him do it. But no, it is your sin, you have to accept full responsibility, and that doesn't just mean giving up the animal, it means taking the knife to it. Tough accountability!
