Dear Brother / Sister,
It is permissible to kill harmful animals; it is also permissible to kill animals like weasels and badgers for their leather and fur, animals like deer and gazelles for their meat. It is also permissible to export the animals whose meat is not permissible to eat except pigs to non-Muslims. (Sharh an-Niqaya)
It is not permissible to kill harmless animals. It is permissible to kill harmful animals without torturing them. (Bariqa)
