Hunting has always been taken as a manly sport, marking one’s bravery and marksmanship since our evolution. Hunting of dangerous animals is okay, only if they mean any harm but what we have gained is endangering their species and proved ourselves to be more dangerous in particular.

Hunting for food is one thing, hunting dangerous animals is another but hunting for the sake of fun or boasting around is a big no, unethical and unmanly.

RIYADH: A man was arrested in Saudi Arabia for illegally hunting more than a hundred spiny-tailed desert lizards, a viral video has shown.
Social media users widely shared footage of the man as he bragged about hunting a hundred of animals known locally as “dabb lizards.”
Dozens of the yellowish reptile, with four legs and a long tail, can be seen laid on the floor.
The spokesman for Al-Qasim police, Badr Al-Suhaibani, was quoted by Sabq News confirming that the suspect in the video had been arrested.

Our religion teaches us to be polite on human beings as well as animals. If you look at the animals, they kill others animals to protect themselves or eat them, they never kill for the sake of fun. This is the rule of nature and we need to abide by it.
