They saved some, killed others, by doing something they shouldn't be doing

They = HAM? HAF?
They1 = They2?
Some = HAM? HAF?
Others = HAM? HAF?
Is it illegal to do this "something"? or just a bad choice for the particular situation?

So basically, 'they' are little girls who saved some female adult non-humans but in the process, killed some males of the same non-human species.

Is the fact that only the males died a direct consequence of the fact that only the females could be saved?
To rephrase, did the males die only because they could not be saved like the females? Or did the girls do something else to kill them?

not the same species
Is the fact that only the males died a direct consequence of the fact that only the females could be saved? if that means the males died BECAUSE the females were saved, yes
To rephrase, did the males die only because they could not be saved like the females? Or did the girls do something else to kill them? no

So, human juvenile girls saved adult females of nonhuman species 1, and as a direct consequence of this, adult members of nonhuman species 2 died? Were killed? Did the girls directly save species 1? Indirectly? Did they directly kill species 2? Indirectly?

Any violence involved?

How many girls? Relevant? Are other people relevant? A third nonhuman species? More? Is the time period relevant? The location?

Has this happened in real life? Can this happen in real life?

Did the girls intend to save Sp. 1? Did they intend to kill Sp. 2? Do they know that by saving Sp. 1, they will end up killing Sp. 2?

How old are the girls? 0-2? 2-6? 6-10? 10-18? Relevant?

Are they forbidden from doing what they are doing because it's dangerous? Immoral? Illegal? Against societal, cultural or religious norms?
Is it something that you're allowed to do when you're older, like driving and drinking (I don't mean those two together!)?

How many girls are there? Is it relevant?
Did the girls know that they saved Sp.1 and killed Sp.2 afterward?
Is the two species animal? Are they mammals? birds? insects? other?
Is the gender of the species relevant?
Are the girls aware that what they did was "something they shouldn't be doing"?
Would a third-party consider their act "something they shouldn't be doing"?

So other children would consider their act bad, but not adults?
Are any of the species dogs? cats? bears? cows? sheep? Which would be the closest?

Did the girls save a group of sheep from a group of wolves, and the wolves starved to death? On the right track?

Are the cats the ones saved, or the ones killed?
Are the killed species dead because they are unable to eat the saved species?
Are they dead because the saved species would otherwise help them survive had they not been saved?

here goes...
**************Spoiler****************
These girls are in Africa. They see a baby zebra running to its mum. They were told not to make loud noises but they cheer for the zebra foal. This scares the whole zebra herd who runs off. Lions were trying to catch some zebra, and they gave up, could'nt catch anything else, and died. Please check out "Will you still need me,will you still feed me", coming soon to the bottom of the page!
