Editor’s Note: Can they do that or is PETA taking the law into their own hands?
The heartless thug who kicked a squirrel into the Grand Canyon in a Youtube clip has a £10,000 bounty on his head thanks to furious animal activists.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), famous for its shock tactics and ads containing scantily clad women, are on the hunt for the man shown in the video.
The charity pointed to notorious criminals such as Jon Venables, Ian Brady and Ian Huntley, who all abused animals in the past, as reasons why the act should not go unpunished.
The video has had nearly 105,000 views and shows a shirtless man wearing boxers and a straw hat laying out breadcrumbs for a squirrel near a cliff top.
As the squirrel gets close to the edge of the cliff one man, thought to be French, sneaks up on it and boots it off the cliff.
PETA UK spokesperson Ben Williamson said: ‘It is imperative that any community faced with a sadistic and violent act such as this take measures to find the culprit or culprits and bring them to justice.
