That is an interesting point but I have to disagree...
When a human commits murder, there is always a reason, it may not be an "acceptable" reason but non the less it exists. There are many examples in the animal kingdom of "natural" killers, i do not profess to know their reasons but I do know that they do not always kill for food or to protect their young:
some breeds of dogs.
some species of birds,
but to name a few.
EDITED cos i just thought of zander
