culling/killing grey squirrels and mink as opposed to wolves

Deer is easy to justify, IMHO. Unmanaged, deer herds don't stop growing.
They just get sicker as they exceed the available food resource.
Naturally this doesn't happen because the size of a deer herd is
controlled by predators. But we've shot all the wolves, so we have a
moral obligation to take over their role in controlling deer
populations.
