There are girls in my classes who are like that. "OMG, why did you kill the poor thing!? They're sooo cute!" Well, if they met animals in the wild they won't be thinking they're cute for very long, ya know, potentially being attacked and all. But they always bug me, because I'm a girl who skins animals (granpa was a hunter, so are my cousins). I've skinned deer, moose, muskrat, elk, beaver, and rabbits. Yes, cute, little bunny rabbits. They make good eatin'.
You know you really shouldn't go on about species overpopulation when there are over 7 billion people on this planet and many are starving to death. If we aren't going to thin out our own species, then why are we thinning out others?
