 This is a question each person must answer for him/herself. The vast majority of people would agree that if, for example, a tiger attacks a human child, the tiger should be killed to save the life of the child. I think that it actually depends on the situation, if killing the animal can reduce it’s pain, then it is morally right to kill the animal. If saving the animal costs a lot and the rate of success of saving it is low, and which the money can be used to save another life, it is also morally right. If killing the animal can save more than the numbers killed (e.g. the animal has a disease that can spread to other animals), then I think that it morally right. I also think that it depends on how the animal is killed, for example, if killing the animal is to decrease it’s pain, killing it in a painful way is actually making the animal’s situation worse.

I think it also depends, if sacrificing the animal can save more than one humans, I think that it is morally right, because I believe that if the total number of lives killed is less than the total number of lives saved, then it is morally right to sacrifice, for example if a medicine have been created and tested but killed 36 animals in a laboratory, but the medicine cured hundreds of humans, I think that it is fair to sacrifice the lives of the 36 animals in this case. But if 36 animals are killed just to prove someone or something wrong, it is morally wrong to kill the animals, for example, a company is sued for selling drugs that are actually harmful for the human body, it is morally wrong to test the drugs on animals and other beings as 1. It is not a fair test as the structure of animal and human body is different, 2.alternatives can be used e.g., checking the substance and material the drug is made from.
Overall, I believe that sacrificing lives to save other lives is only morally right in some scenarios, and is morally wrong in some cases.

Hope it helps.....

Thumbs up please........
