    They clean up the waste predators leave behind.

    Moreover, both scavengers and predators in the natural world are morally superior to some humans because they do not predate their own kind.

    Humans not only kill their own kind, they exploit them, as if they were parasites, unmercifully. Doing it vicariously by getting everyone hooked on money and then not letting people have enough to sustain themselves and their off-spring does not make it any less immoral and anti-social.

    The thing is that humans are designed to be social organisms,  to share resources and contributed talents. So, human predators and parasites, who only take without giving back are an aberration -- an offense to Mother Nature. The gift of gab may let them claim otherwise, but that doesn't make it so.

    Willard's forte = "catch 'n' cage". He's not into "catch and release."
