Forty meat samples were collected from different places in Diyala province (20 samples for each of the regular slaughter and meat slaughtered in the streets). Bacterial community detection were done via using suitable media. The results indicated Staphylococcus aureus isolates were 30% and 90% that isolated from meat samples that were taken from slaughter houses and street slaughtered respectively. Isolation percentage of E.coli were 20% and 30% that isolated from slaughter houses and street slaughtered respectively. Isolation percentage of Klebsiella spp were 10% and 70% of meat samples that isolated from slaughter houses and street slaughtered respectively. Pseudomonus spp isolation percentage was 10% from street slaughtering meat samples. The Street slaughtered meat was highly contaminated as a comparative with that meat came from slaughter houses. This study proved that the Erythromycin was highly effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Ampicloxacilline was highly effective against Escherichia coli and Klebsiella was highly affected by Tetracycline.
