At least by the time of Cain and Abel (the sons of Adam and Eve), if not before that by Adam himself (though there is not a scriptural reference to this). "In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, but for Cain and his offering he had no regard." (Genesis 4:3-5) The specific details of how this was conducted are not written, but it is a clear indication of animal sacrifice.
