Gog gave life to all creatures. Sometimes I feel it's wrong to kill animals, since they were created and cherished by God. Well, I don't know if you have same feelings. If you don't, could you tell me how to get over the feelings.

i believe that God made all creatures as well. i also believe that it is fine to kill an animal for food, but i don't believe hunting animals just for sport is what God had in mind. if you are going to eat what you kill, then fine- if you are just hunting animals for sport and pleasure and pasttime then it is wrong. God did give us animals to enjoy and also to feed us. but i do not think you are wrong if you don't like the killing of animals. that is just the way you feel. :)

Killing of animals is wrong if one does not eat them after killing. I agree with you. Thanks for responding.

I think it is not wrong to kill animals to become our food. The wrong thing to kill animals is, to killing them for just having some fun and conserved them.

Yes, God created animals first. But for me I could not kill any animals, big or small. However, I don't really feel that way about insects, like mosquitoes, which like to feed on human blood. But when it comes to other animals demestic or wild for any reasons, I myself could not do it. I quess it's because I have a heart for animals. I hope this helps you. Thank!

You know life exists as either plant or animal. Do you believe that? Do you you eat meat? Well, I don't want to bother you so much with questions. Thanks for your response.

it is really hurtful to see any animal killed or hurt. fact is that people who can tolerate hurting or even killing animals, they say, is close to doing that to the highest form of animal which is us, humans. however, it takes a lot of reasoning, i believe for anyone to go about this. some animals need to be hunted or controlled in number because their great population would pose a danger to mankind.

it depends on what kind of animal are you going to kill and what is the purpose becuase there is kind of animal that is meant for eating we can kill this one and we need to because this what our body needs, other animal kill other animals too for food because they need to, but if you are going to kill an animal just for the fun of it i dont think that is good.

God designed the animals to be used by humans for food and clothes and for work. And by allowing man to eat animals and to use their fur and wool for clothing, HE extended man's dominion over the Earth. Had man not been allowed to kill or eat animals, man would have just had stayed in the areas around the equators where you could pick fruit off the trees and vegetables from the ground all year around. It is wrong to kill an animal that is used as a beast of burden and wrong to kill a cow or a goat that can still produce milk. As for dangerous animals who will attack and kill your children, I would hope that you would defend your family at all costs despite your qualms. It will show who you value most.

I spent years as an avid hunter, and I feel that if you kill the animal you should use every part of it possible. I realize that we have progressed passed the point of making tools out of the bones and intrials, but I know that if you leave the gut pile out the other animals in the area will eat it and there is no waste in that. I do believe in game management, and these days I only hunt with my camera. We have a responsibility to take care of the world we live in and that includes the animals and wildlife in the world. I never believed in trophy hunting. I assume it is a female thing, I never felt the need to pit myself against animals for trophy hunting, just wanted to feed my family. Unless you are a a vegaterian then you to consume animal meat. If you have pets and feed them commercial food then you are still using animal products. So it is very hard to get away from. In the beginning of the earth there was a division where some were animal consumers and some were farmers, so God put animals here for us to care for and for them to care for us by feeding us. I feel these days it is a personal choice and in some cases a religious choice, but we should not judge either choice as long as the animals are not wasted.

Killing of animals is not good .But if it also blocks our roads and cause accident for people maybe I agree if its legal.Sometimes there is a law for that to haul all animals that walking along the streets and if were not get by the owner the will kill it.No enough area of impounding it in one cage.

If we read the story of creation in Genesis, we find that when God made man, He said that man will rule over the earth, plants, animals, etc. We are reponsible for this planet earth and will be held accountable for what we do with it. God gave plants and animals as food, but not all is to be eaten. Every animal kind has a purpose. Some are for human consumption, some are to clean the fiels, trimm the trees, etc. What we kill, we should eat, I fully agree on that. It is not wrong of you to feel the way you do, it shows you care and have respect. And also you do not force others to feel the same, you ask opinions, that is great of you. Thank you. Blessings
