Feral or wild cats will eat it every time. Dogs are pack animals and some domesticated ones still have that instinct. A dog or fox in a chicken coup with birds jumping all over the place will kill them because they feel they are defending themselves in an enclosed area.

"but predators almost universally kill for sport as well as food." no they don't, only humans do.

" The question is - should we as humans be held to a higher standard." yes but there are too many idiots out there

"Also the logical conclusion would be that the dentist that killed that lion would be a hero for all of the prey animal lives he saved" - no, he would have been killed as a predatory animal. But the predatory animals (except humans) predate to eat not for mindless sport (i use the term "sport" very very loosely as its not a fair fight)

The wages of sin are unreported.
