Killing of animals

Killing of animals by humans
Slaughter of animals by humans

The killing of animals is animal euthanasia (for pain relief), animal sacrifice (for a deity), animal slaughter (for food), hunting (for food, for sport, for fur and other animal products, etc.), blood sports, or roadkill (by accident).


The human-caused violence done to animals has been normalized, either through habit or culture, so that it is only the oddball who tries to see life also from the animals's viewpoint who is considered abnormal. As T. S. Eliot wrote, in a world of fugitives those running in the opposite direction are called mad.
