In other scriptures of other religions such as Hinduism, we find similar command given to humans to consume these fast breeding mammals, [Manusmruti 5:30-32]. Nevertheless, killing them for eating and without any pain to them is condition implied. Nature does not want man to kill for any other purpose. It becomes evident from the command that says, "You kill, without pain to them, and eat" and not just kill. This tells us that eating meat of these crazing mammals and birds is part of man's ritual to help god in keeping balance of these creatures. In Manusmruti, it says only when you give this meat as offering to God that you can eat it not otherwise. That means God eats it through your mouth. Among Hindus, there is a tradition to serve meat of these animals as an offering to Goddess Amba (in its many forms). However, some hypocrite religions profess (unlimited) non-violence to protect these fast growing animals. They are actually disobeying the command of God that human must help providence in maintaining balance of this cosmos. Killing for food is not considered as violence by God but if you kill for any other purpose it is violence and not permitted by God. This explanation goes well with both Jesus' teachings and Manusmruti. Let us see one more reference in this connection given in Tymothy.
Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. [Man shall do this because of his ego.]
Timothy 4:2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
Timothy 4:3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
Timothy 4:4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. [This means you shall first offer all you want to eat to God and then consume that on behalf of God as libation]
