    Animals don't have natural rights. If the animals in question are a person's property, there's nothing s\he can possibly to do them that should constitute a legal crime, as long as no self-owning entities (i.e. other human beings) are harmed in the process.

    That said, torturing animals is unethical and clearly undesirable, and most people would choose to expose and ostracize a person who is cruel to animals. Furthermore, establishments like homeowners' associations and pet ownership societies could make cruelty to animals a punishable offense through contract law. This is how a free society would deal with people like that - without ever initiating aggression against them.

    This dude has serious issues. That's my expert opinion.

    He needs extensive psychological help.

    But he'll just end up in jail for a couple of years and be released just as bugnuts crazy as he was before he went there if not worse.

    But it's still extremely wrong on a moral point of view to skin live cats. It's cruel and it's barbarous, especially when these cats are owned by people who love them.

    Animal violence is even more shocking than violence against humanes, because animals are always innocent. Nothing could "justify" it (unlike a neighbor who gets knocked down because he makes too much noise or insults people)
    I was being fatuous but good line to pick out of mine. I know cats are not humans. I think violence against humans is greater than cats because humans have more potential right now in this world.

    I disagree: it may sound a bit "hippye" but I disagree with the hierarchy "Humans > Animals"

    Some "evolved" animals (like monkeys and most other big mammals, like cats or dogs) have "humane characteristics": they can communicate, they can interact with us, they have feelings...there is no difference that could justify a total absence of rights, or that violence against them is "less bad" than violence against humans

    Of course that doesn't really apply to ants or snails (yet it's still wrong to kill them just for the pleasure)

    They say that this is a possible predictor of serial killing later in life.

    And if you say he looks angelic, so did Ted Bundy.
    He needs to be locked away now and intensely evaluated. This is a serious escalation in sadism and psychopathy for someone so young. I would definitely be worried that this was a precursor to something much more sinister.
