Why did Hashem remove the wild animals and not kill them (like he killed the frogs)?


Rashi and Ramban: Because then they would have derived benefit from the animals' skins. 1


And it was Hashem's intention that the plagues should cause the Egyptians to suffer, and not that they should benefit from them in any way (Ramban, citing the Midrash).
