Question
Is Ahimsa applied to humans alone or is it spread to all living things?

Answer
Hi

Ahimsa is applied to human beings only.

other living beings do not have the level of intelligence of human beings to determine good or bad, right or wrong, useful or harmful, etc.

Life and living of living things other than human beings are considered to be a curse.

Hope that helps
