Spin-momentum locking in Weyl semimetals correlates the orbital motion of electrons with background magnetic textures. We show here that the dynamics of a magnetic texture in a magnetic Weyl semimetal induces a pumped electric current that is free from Joule heating. This pumped current can be regarded as a Hall current induced by axial electromagnetic fields equivalent to the magnetic texture. Taking a magnetic domain wall as a test case, we demonstrate that a moving domain wall generates a pumping current corresponding to the localized charge.
