hurt is involved in the act of killing. the animal may experience pain in the afterlife. how do you know? the living animals around it get hurt too. stressed. pain. people doing the killing also get hurt. feelings. a good life and a quick death doesn't mean there is a void of hurt creation. animals grieve. maybe not all of them at our level. i'd call that hurt too.
