How do you define “wild animals”? Since grade 1, we have been studying that wild animals are those animals who hunt others for their food and this is how the Noble Almighty made them. However, wild animals are a part of some food chains and they were necessary to control the population of the other animals.

But while human beings started interfering in these food chains, the fauna living on the earth has literally seen havoc. Human beings kill animals for their food and this is quite acceptable. When you do not have enough plants to serve your basic living needs, of course, you can kill some animals.

However, the hunger of human beings did not hush by just filling their belly and they literally started killing animals to fill their bank accounts. What level of wildness would you put this on a scale where you measure the wildness of the animals?

It’s these actions of human beings that have resulted in the extinction of many species of plants and animals from the earth and more and more species are seeing their dead-end in the upcoming period. Is this not an example of wildness? And this is surely something that can confirm that there is not wilder animal on this earth than human beings.

A wild animal may spare a human being for once if it is not hungry at all, but a human being would hardly spare a wild animal if any of its body parts hold any commercial value for the human being. The hunger of the stomach could be hushed but the hunger of the bank accounts could not be hushed.

It’s high time now that human beings realize the importance of animals on this earth, or all of them would be a part of only the extinct list in some time and this would surely be because of the wildness of the wildest animal on earth — the human beings.
