    If they are putting another life in danger - Yes!
    If I'm using them for food/clothing - Yes!

  • Hunting or fishing for food or if the animal has wounds like broken limbs to where it will die in the wilderness anyway, like a deer being hit by a car. Sometimes the best option is to just kill it to put it out of it's misery and lessen the suffering.

  • I have put my cat to sleep when he was in too much pain and there was nothing left the vet could do, so yeah, if it was the humane thing to do I would and could.

  • If I had to kill an animal to protect myself or my child, I would.

  • gosh for fun? Hell no, now if my pet was suffering and couldn't be helped I would have the vet put them down.

  • Well sure I have.

     I shot a beautiful deer last year, and a turkey.

    And yes, I would shoot a feral cat.
