Undeserved Fear And Hatred

So, can you explain why Mankind reacts to us in this illogical way?
Nothing we've done warrants such fear and hatred to come into play.
All but a few of us are harmless; by controlling vermin we do our part.
Kill! Kill! Yet seeing us simply sunning elicits murder in your heart.
Even though we mean you no harm, you look at us with hateful passion.
Surely you'd never treat a fellow race of Mankind in such a fashion....
