A disturbing video uploaded initially on Liveleaks and Youtube features a sick individual feeding his python with a…living kitten. Because of the cruelty of the images, the footage was withdrawn from most websites BUT scroll down for censored video.
The around 4-month-old kitten whose name was Jasmine is not aware of the danger but the owner distracts her and pushes her closer to the reptile. At a certain point when the animals approach was close enough, the python acted rapidly in its characteristic style, by biting, folding and crushing the cat. It does not take long before the kitten stops moving desperately its tail and then the snake starts to eat her from head to tail. Even when the playful animal screamed in agony, the sadistic owner was not impressed and turned the music louder -Little Drumer Boy Christmas song.
The 7-minute video was unveiled first on website Flix under an account from Islington, London.
The British authorities opened an investigation and if the sicko is identified he might face 6 months in prison plus a 20000 pounds penalty for animal cruelty actions. Now, many of you may wonder how it is possible in a normal society to have dangerous reptiles as pets, but the authorities are perhaps the most appropriate to provide us with answers!
