Additionally, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change took to Twitter to express his disgust at the viral video.
"Afflicting, hurting, torturing or brutally killing animals are unacceptable practices that are punishable under the Federal Law No. 18 of the year 2016 on cases of violence against animals.
