culling means to remove from a population (most specifically to select the good ones), a population which isn't necessarily made up of wild animals. not meaning to sound rude at all x_x;

While that is true, it is used the majority of the time when referring to animals!

I like literal definitions the best, and the literal definition is specific to wild animals. It also means to select from a large quantity, which goes along with that I guess?

Culling is used for trolls due to their society reflecting a lot on insects and animals, at least that’s what it looks like.

Wow I just really like vocabulary, words are really fun.
