This is the disturbing moment a dog was boiled alive by laughing villagers in China.
Footage captured on a mobile phone shows the canine, which appears to be wearing a house collar, struggling in a wok of boiling water.
The animal’s feet are bound together, but even so the villagers need to used a bamboo pole to hold it down as it writhes in agony.
Activist group Fight Dog Meat uploaded the footage, which appears to have come from Chinese social media, on to their website.
It is unclear where or when the footage was taken.
Michele Brown, the founder of Fight Dog Meat, wrote: ‘Cooking the dog in this method would take perhaps an hour for the dog to lose consciousness, and longer again for it to actually die.
The vat is so shallow the dog can’t even drown to meet an earlier death to escape the inflicted agony.
‘I find this almost unbearable to watch without wanting to inflict great pain on this man, and his laughing spectators.
‘Words have not been invented yet to describe the pain this dog went through, or the depth of the disgraceful behavior all the humans present.’
