Animal rights activists across the world have once again been left distraught, sick and in shock after a video appeared online showing the brutal killing of a defenceless puppy.
In the footage (which we have decided not to publish) the young pup is sadly killed in the most brutal fashion after it is thrown into a river which houses a number of large crocodiles.
To make matters even worse the heartbreaking killing occurred at the hands of an 11 yr-old boy who deliberately threw the distraught pup to its death.
The video which was shared to the popular social media website LiveLeak.com, has been viewed over 70,000 times and it has led to many to voice their disgust at the killing which was apparently carried out in Indonesia.
It is believed the pup was eaten alive by a menacing Croc, after the young boy who is seen laughing in the video took it from a rucksack by the neck and threw into the river.
Heartbroken activists have been reportedly left devastated by the killing as the pup is clearly seen struggling to keep its head above water before it is ultimately snared by the lurking Croc.
Many have taken to social media to voice their outrage at the killing especially given the fact that it was orchestrated by someone so young.
