Divine Code for November 11, 2022
Today: Page 281
Topic 7:4 -- 7:9
One may kill an animal if the animal causes pain or inconvenience to humans.
One may kill an animal to feed his own animals, but one may not kill an animal to feed wild animals.
While one has no obligation to give wild animals food or water, it is proper to go beyond the letter of the law and show mercy to the created beings, to ease their suffering. That one does for one's own animals is logical. However
mercy-killing ivan animals is prohibited.
Placing an animal in a fenced environment where there is insufficient food for the animal to eat or drink is prohibited.
It is permitted to perform sensible scientific experiments with animals to test drugs and other remedies, to determine whether they are possibly beneficial or safe for humans.
