3. Yes, it is efficient, and while I'm not fond of meat, if what you do is humane

(as humane as it can be - trapping to me seems utterly hideous) and doesn't skew your local ecosystem there probably aren't many arguments against it other than the ones made in the article about compassion.

If you don't kill the animal instantly, if there is any lingering or suffering, then no amount of frugality can compensate for the suffering inflicted on a living being.

If you snuff them out immediately, well, I won't argue with you unless you're messing up an ecosystem.
