Cole is consumed by his rage and self-loathing. He hurts small animals to appease his own pain. If Cole could not be peaceful towards simple, humble animals, he certainly would not be ready to cease to be angry at humans, with their increased complexity. Thus, anger towards more vulnerable creatures would cause him to harm himself and slow down his own healing.
