Lets say that an alien lands on your backyard, and you take out your gun and shoot it. Then you take the alien's corpse and you make some alien stew.

Will that be hunting or murder?

(Assume the alien has human intelligence and abilities)

Depends on the alien's intentions.

Neither; it's self-defense. You have no idea what that alien's intentions towards you are. If it were friendly, it wouldn't be in your backyard. If it crash-landed, I would be more worried about the property damage. If it were hostile, it wouldn't show up in your backyard. In short, you just killed the class clown of aliens. If the alien looks like Jar Jar Binks, you just performed one of the greatest services imaginable to the universe.

Also, are you an idiot? You have no idea what pathogens that alien could have, or even if you can digest what it's made of. Enjoy your pandemic.
