無数の魔族がここにひしめきあっているらしいが、滅びを目的とする魔族が生物を無目的に守護するのはよくない、ということで、魔族はカタート山脈でのペット飼育は禁止だとか。

I can't understand the meaning of this...
Context: It's a fantasy story. He is talking about a dangerous place with demons living in it.
Any help??? Thanks in advance!

    It is said that this place is crowded with countless demons. They, whose purpose is to destroy, won’t benefit from protecting living things aimlessly. Therefore, they forbid keeping pets in Katarto mountains.

    I may be making mistakes but I hope this makes sense.

    Sorry if this doesn’t make sense. Let’s wait for native speakers. Just out of curiosity, do you mind telling me what novel or story you are reading?

    "It seems that there are a lot of demons in the Katâto Mountains. It is said that they are not allowed to have pets because their purpose/mission should be to kill living creatures, not to take care of them, which would be against demons' purpose and wouldn't be proper. "

    I feel a jokey/funny tone in it.
    There is a contradiction between killing animals and taking care of/feeding/keeping alive animals, indeed.
    There are many demons there. Some of them are "decent and kind" demons who want to have pets. But it would be "illegal" in their society.
