Mercy Killings

Mercy release is the Buddhist practice of freeing a captured animal to create good karma. Every year around the world, Buddhists  or animal lovers release hundreds of millons of animals into the wild. These merciful acts might not only lead to the deaths of animals but also can cause environmental damage and threaten ecosystems.
