WARNING: Graphic footage

Peta has urged authorities to investigate the source of a video in which a man eats a baby rat alive.

In the video, which was posted to LiveLeak, a man places a baby rat in his mouth and bites down, which causes its entrails to shoot out towards the camera.

He then retches before washing the rat down with a bottle of liquid.

Peta has implored authorities to remove the man from the community for his own sake, and urged that they investigate the source of the video.

‘One can only imagine that this person is mentally disturbed and urgently needs to be taken out of the general population and helped for his own sake and that of the community,’ said Peta UK Director Mimi Bekhechi.

‘Anyone capable of mercilessly crushing a small, helpless animal to death should cause everyone to be concerned, because a lack of empathy and a desire to exert power over the helpless invariably manifests itself in other antisocial ways, including other violent crimes.

‘We ask that the authorities investigate the source of this video and urge anyone with information about the identity of this individual to come forward right away.’
