Rights

Do we have a right to kill wild animals? Is there any reason that hunting (except for survival) should be banned? Are there spiritual, ethical, or moral reasons to avoid killing animals? Is it better or worse to kill wild animals compared to domestic animals? Conditions for farmed animals (pigs, chickens, cattle, milk cows, sheep, goats) are not always “humane.” Should we treat animals humanely because of the characteristics of the animals, or because of what kind of animal we want to be?
