Re: Did the Buddha teach against killing a being quickly out of mercy?

This actually sounds like we shouldn't treat any illness, since doing so may delay the onset of death. No one can take away our last moments - they will always be the last moments (of this life). Your presumption that there is only one conclusion that can be reached in all circumstances is too rigi...

Re: Did the Buddha teach against killing a being quickly out of mercy?

It's pretty simple. You can't possibly know what's going on inside the head of an animal that can't communicate with you. Thus, there is no way to know the animal's intentions, feelings, or thoughts on the matter. Leaving the animal alone is the best course of action. We only die once. Death may be ...
