The game had some animals which you have to smash so that they don't eat the food. When you smash then a blood spot is shown to simulate the killing.

Apple says that violence on animals and killing/smashing them is not allowed on app store.

Anyone faced this thing with blood/kill/shoot related games?

This sounds just like Apple. They don't want to upset their hipster crowd who luvs animals, peace, and the world. (even though Mobile Strike and COD zombies seem to be fine) 
Just make your animals smash into rainbows/chocolates and I am sure your game will be approved in no time!

I wonder what the limit is - after all, there could be some gradation to this:
1) Regular looking animals like hamsters or mice, blood when smashing
2) Regular looking animals like hamsters or mice, non-blood cartoony particles when smashing
3) made-up animals like pokemon
4) made up evil-looking animals

Apple called me hahaha. They said no blood, no violence, no torture on animals/birds of any kind.

javaexp - I had this happen with my zombie ragdoll app (they didn't call, but they rejected my app) - the screenshots features spikes that had blood on them. I sent them a polite letter that had a link to other apps that had much more blood/gore in the screenshots, and luckily for me they then allowed the app without any changes - maybe try the same/find similar apps and use them as justification
