    Then if it's just a matter of property rights, why is there any more outrage here than in the case of other property damage?

    I dunno, because we are a people of compassion and civility. At least most of us are.

    And I don't really see outrage. I see concern that a young person has some serious emotional disturbances. I also see a newer concern cropping up that there seems to be a wish to mitigate his transgressions by comparing it to food consumption or some such nonsense.

    Then it seems that we should return back to the prior question of why there is not similar concern over painful slaughter of livestock and such animals.

    Because we eat them.

    Cat fillet has never been on any menu I've ever seen, at least not the ones in English.

    So if it was...you wouldn't object? Is that your position?

    There are regulations concerning the slaughter of livestock animals. There is no question concerning livestock animals that relates to the sadistic killing of all a neighborhood's pets by a boy.

    Of course there are. But there's a significant amount of pain and suffering inflicted on said livestock during the process of slaughter nonetheless.

    OK. That still has nothing to do with a disturbed young boy killing all the neighborhood's pets in a display of sadism and disregard for life.

    No, but there is cause to question why there would be exceptional outrage in such an instance when none exists in the case of livestock or other such animals slaughtered for the purpose of consumption.

    No, there is no such cause except on a purely pseudo-intellectual level. It has nothing to do with this boy's emotional disturbances.
