Middle School: The Ethics of Killing Animals

🦡🐷The commonality to every human being on the planet is that humans depend on killing animals. Many cultures and societies have different perspectives about the treatment of both wild and domestic animals and their use for food, fur, and other products.

⛺️ The middle school spent two nights working with hunters who battle the destruction of its agricultural crops by wild animals such as boar and deer.

🥾They went into the wilderness, set up traps, and slaughtered these animals. It was an experience that allowed them to reflect on our own understandings of what it means to have a relationship with animals that involves death.

Though their unit has not finished yet, we will continue to explore how other religions and cultures view the killing of animals.
