Why do people kill animals?

Answer

Some people kill animals because they want to use the animals for food or clothing, while other people kill animals because they find it challenging and fun. Humans are apex predators, or predators at the top of the food chain that have few predators of their own. The food chain depends on apex predators to keep the populations of omnivores, herbivores and some carnivores under control.

Some people find hunting to be an economical way to obtain a large amount of meat. Others hunt to prove that they can be self-reliant. There are some who consider hunting to be an enjoyable hobby that brings them closer to nature and friends. Hunters generally strive to kill animals in an ethical manner; the goal is to kill the animal as swiftly and humanely as possible.
