Thanks for explaining. I have to say I am quite shocked. How is this action any different from someone who does not know the Buddha's Teachings.
I live where homes frequently have mice, rats, snakes, possums, cockroaches. At least, mine does from time to time. All of them - all - can be excluded, repelled, caught in humane non-harming traps, or discouraged/prevented from entering the home.
