I don't know enough Latin to answer your question exactly, but if it's any help, the Latin word for "animal" is..."animal".

 

Unfortunately "anicide" won't work, as "ani" is the original Latin plural of "anus".

Meh. f**k specieism, murder is murder. Just wish there was a more incriminating term for animal-murder other than "slaughter" (thereby making the act of murder seem more benign because it is for human consumption). The way we talk about things shape our thoughts and subsequently our minds (beliefs, convictions etc.), so when words that describe callous and brutal acts have neutral (non-incriminating) value, people tend to think less of the act/crime those words describe (such as animal murder). But yeah Richard's suggestion seems the closest to an incriminating term for animal murder.
