Zombie Apocalypse: Can I Get Some Death, Here, Already? EE Halloween!

Suppose there is a zombie apocalypse.  Dan Drezner and a bunch of other 5'8" guys walking around drooling blood and pus.

Is it morally permissible to "kill" the zombie?  What does that even mean, really?  The thing is dead, in terms of its own moral agency at least.  But it may have memories. It has at least SOME brain function, right?

Now, you know.  The answer is:  hard to say, actually.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
