There is a graphic scene where several dogs attack the troop of National Guardsmen, and although we see the troops trying to fight off the attacking dogs with the butts of their rifles, we (thankfully) don't hear any yelping and then the dogs, all of them, run off.

We do not see abuse, but we see a lot of dead carcasses, and since the two pigs' REAL shooting and gutting was allowed in this movie, I have no doubt that all the dead rabbits hanging, and the dead dear were likely real as well.

Lots of them. Dead gutted rabbits hanging. Dead fish, mink, a deer, and game of all kinds. There are hunters and trappers in the story, so we see the animals they killed. One scene shows a man skinning some creature, though it's hard to see what kind of animal it is. Real slaughter of two pigs and other pigs on spits.

All through the movie, National Guardsmen are stalked and hunted in the bayou by some locals they angered.

One of the National Guardsmen smokes pot and there is some discussion that he sells drugs to high school kids.

God yes, we see the horrific TRUE SHOOTING, SLAUGHTER, AND GUTTING of two pigs during the conclusion of the movie during a cajun music festival. The American Humane Association reports the pigs were going to be slaughtered anyway, the director, (Walter Hill, of "48 Hrs" fame) opted to include the horrific deaths in this movie. According to the AHA the Louisiana Film Commission was on set during these two animal deaths. It is played out for several minutes interspersed with singing and dancing. It is a very graphic and inhumane scene. This should never have been allowed in a movie.
