They are hunted to get their skin. Some are also killed just for fun.We should not do that. The animals have the right to live as we human beings have.
For sustenance. Humans are omnivores, just like their close relatives the apes. I do believe, though, that we eat far more meat than is healthy and is part of he reason for our ill health and obesity. Meat is healthy, but not in the volume in which we eat it.
They are very nice to eat
They smell nice!!
