Unless you’re drawing out the animal’s death, wasting the potential resources it offers, or it’s an endangered species. Like with white tail deer, they’re already over populated, culling the population a little would help the ecosystem more than it would harm it. Just have respect for the life of the animal. Why isn’t the killing of the animal the issue for you? You say “have respect for the life of the animal” but you can’t do that while simultaneously killing said animal. If someone thinks it’s ok to kill the animal, they must have a difference between the animal and a human that justifies the killing. And if the difference was applied to a human, they must also accept killing them, otherwise it’s a contradiction. With all due respect, I believe it is possible. When I say "have respect for the life of the animal," I mean you should respect the fact that you are potentially taking a life, and that action should be justified. The killing of an animal isn't an issue for me if it is justified and absolutely necessary.  And yes, there is a difference between animals and humans. While we too are animals, we are significantly more developed intellectually and biologically in comparison to the majority of other species. This is a fact, and it's why many of us are so comfortable with killing wild animals-we feel disconnected to them except in certain cases, such as species like dolphins, apes, horses, and dogs. Does that mean we should value the lives of animals any less? No. But while animals are by nature more primal, that doesn't negate the fact that if they have proven to be a legitimate threat to the ecosystem and/or society, there shouldn't be an issue with killing them (ex. rabid animals beyond help). This isn't solely limited to animals either, you can see it in our own human society in many ways. For instance, our society executes people who have committed atrocities of the highest level, but we still value human life.

Hi! If you're reading this, could you please type in: photo:6446529 but add [ to the beginning and ] to the end (no spaces)? Thank you! This is an image embed test, if you're curious (seeing if anyone can use images that I upload around the forums) not sure where this went, so I put it in general :P
