Absolutely true. Canids and felids in particular hunt more for sport than for food. Wolves have been observed having all sorts of fun killing an entire flock of sheep. Foxes hunt and kill mice and birds without eating 'em. And I used to have a cat who did nothing but hunt gophers all day long; within 3 years he'd completely exterminated them in my neighborhood.
Incidentally my neighbor runs a twice-weekly foxhunt, tho the usual quarry is coyotes (mostly chasing, they usually don't shoot 'em). The local coyotes have gotten so into being chased by dogs that they come down to the kennel the night before a hunt and get the dogs all riled up and ready to go.
Female dogs that have never had pups will often kill puppies. Presumably fewer of someone else's offspring means more resources when you have your own.
[This is a consistent enough behavior that I warn clients in no uncertain terms to never ever leave the new puppy alone with the adult dog, most especially the spayed female adult dog.]
Dogs, cats, chickens, horses, various fish, some insects...
Hmm. Maybe it's just a living organism thing.
Another scheme by the labels is to sign up promising bands who are seen as competitors... and now that they're locked into a contract, they're never let produce an album. So basically they're eliminated as potential competition for the money-acts.
Researching the "Rape Culture" of America
by Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers
So 104 people were killed by police in the USA during August, 2014. To my eyes, that's an absolutely enormous figure. As a Brit, I compare it to the 1 person killed over 3 years by the UK police. Yes, they're two different countries, yes there's a lot more people in the US, yes they have different cultures, yadda yadda yadda; people are dying here.
Let's do some maths:
Even MS can't say exactly what that spec is. Sure, there's an alleged standard but Word never actually followed it and in spite of over 1000 pages of documentation, it's incomplete.
