Searching, pursuing, and killing wild animals

Hunting is the practice of seeking, pursuing and capturing or killing wildlife or feral animals. Hunting is most commonly done by humans to harvest useful animal products, for recreation/taxidermy, to remove predators dangerous to humans or domestic animals, to eliminate pests and nuisance animals that damage crops/livestock/poultry or spread diseases, for trade/tourism, or for ecological conservation against overpopulation and invasive species.
