Probably to end the suffering.
But I'm not sure I could do it. It would tear me apart either way.
A squirrel ran into my car one time (literally, it ran into my car, not the other way around) and it crawled off. I went walking that night by the same spot and was actually relieved to see it dead next to the road. That, to me, meant it had died quickly, instead of getting far away slowly and dying.
