...is not the same as the death of a human. I'm speaking for ranch foxes, per say. Not more intelligent creatures like elephants or monkeys.
There are a lot of issues going around right now regarding anti-fur people. Anti-fur people, let me explain to you why it is not morally wrong to kill a ranch fox.
Wait, let me establish that killing is a fact of life. Everyone has killed something in some way or another, no matter what age. Anything with a life can be killed, whether it be a bug (which we ALL know we have killed at one point in our lives), or a human being. If you squash a bug, you just murdered something--took away its life. Even though it doesn't have the brain capacity to understand that it's about to die--like foxes, which we kill, too.
Anti-fur people tend to over-dramatize the death of a ranch animal. Here's the thing: Animals like foxes don't realize they're about to die. Which makes the experience of its death--for it--not a scary thing. It's not going to panic, bow down on its furry knees, and beg for its life to be spared. It's not going to ask that you spare its friend in exchange for its own life.
If we were to ranch humans, on the other hand, for whatever reason, they would KNOW they're about to die because our brains are developed enough to know this. That's what makes it morally wrong to kill a human in whatever freak situation where they are about to die and are aware of who their killer is. It would be terrifying to a human to know they're about to die--they would be SCARED.
Animals like foxes will never know that fear because they don't understand death, how death occurs, why it's going to happen, or even when it's going to happen.
