He lures a dog out Into the Woods with the intent to kill it, but chickens out last minute and yells at it to go away. Later on, the carcass of a large animal is found, but it is blurry so you can't tell if it's a dog or not. It definitely isn't the same dog though, because it's a different color. It might be a deer

Right at the beginning the main character is walking along the road with a plastic bag with a dead cat inside that he's planning to disolve in acid.

Jeff and his friends go out fishing and despite being told that they needed to release anything they caught, Jeff kills a fish on-screen and gruesomely, saying he wanted to see what its insides looked like.

Although no anxiety attacks specifically are shown, a character’s fake seizures may be similar enough to affect someone

Dahmer and friends repeatedly use problematic language and gestures regarding disabled people. It is done so frequently they refer to it as “doing a Dahmer”

A character eerily plays with a gun, recklessly firing it and pointing it at his head.

There is ableist and homophobic language used, including slurs. Dahmer also asks a black man insensitive questions about the color of his skin, and how his body compares to Dahmer's body because of it.
