Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 3April 16,  Facebook debate: Killing wildlife for population control
Is culling wild animals for population control the most ethical option available for conservation?Don’t encourage culling

Culling wild animals, for the sake of human comfort, is not advisable. Of course, wild animals are more dangerous if they are not protected and end up coming into public areas. This causes people to panic, which has happened recently in Bengaluru, India. Wild animals should be protected carefully. They are all part of the ecosystem and will help the planet prosper. We shouldn’t be disturbing wild animals, and the wisest option is to allow them to live their life. In short, culling cannot be encouraged, but if it is needed, one can do it. I generally disagree with the concept of culling.
