Snape didn't "eat" Trevor though. I think the fact that it's a magical world gives Snape some leeway, since McGonagall was letting them stick pins in hedgehogs and turn rats into teacups (sorry, I mean water goblets). Ron's pet was a rat at the time and he saw Buckbeak and later Sirius-Dog eat rats, which seems worse than what Snape does to Trevor. JMO

ETA: One more thing. I think it's a plausible theory that Snape was checking Trevor to see if he was an animagus ~ It's just a pity he didn't check Scabbers since Peter lived in Harry's Dorm Room for three years. Just a theory.
