Wild animals are continuously being killed across the world yet the policies that have been set in motion are ineffective or at least doesn't address all the related of effects of killing these animals. Killing animals has been touted as the best way to assure that animal damage on the environment and property is mitigated. There are also other valuable reasons such as research purposes, which researchers have attested as their main reasons for killing animals. However, it is arguable whether this is entirely true

The same applies for all the other methods. Therefore, despite the futile efforts by mammalogists to justify their inhuman nature depicted in the killing of animals, the question still remains to be answered regarding the killing of animals. Other researchers have articulated that killing of animals, especially wild animals, could be beneficial. This is because the act helps in reducing the damages on the environment that is caused by these animals, increase in wildlife value, and increased willingness for landowners to tolerate damages by wild animals and removing animals from the general populations before they die (Conover, 529). However, these advantages are hard to quantify or rather measure especially when comparing the act with the suggested benefit. In other words, it is not easy or to determine directly that killing of wild animals would result in an immediate reduction of damages inflicted on the environment or any other of the aforementioned benefits. Therefore, these benefits are arguably true given the limited evidence and direct correlation of killing animals with the anticipated benefits. This study aims to review the phenomena that involve the killing of animals. It reviews the reasons why human beings kill animals and the consequences of their actions. It articulates that the costs that are incurred in killing animals are way higher than the benefits. Furthermore, there are many ethical concerns that arise from actions such as animal …show more content…
