Murder, genocide?

While this is a horrible crime the state of Michigan is perpetrating, let's not call it murder. Using that term for animals in my opinion makes light of the heavy crime of "murder" in the context of the killing of humans. Which I think we'd agree is a crime of a much greater degree. Again, it is horrifying that a government thinks this is morally right in the putting down of these animals and in the usurping of the individual's rights that own the pigs, but MURDER, Genocide? How would we feel if someone compared, even compared the Jewish Holocaust with the putting down of large numbers of pigs in Michigan?
