A sickening video of a PRC woman setting a dog on fire with a blow torch, turning the poor animal into a charred corpse in 28 seconds, has gone viral on PRC social media.
The woman, allegedly a nurse from Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, is seen holding the blow torch over the dog, which laid twisted on the ground. The animal's shrieks of pain could be heard clearly in the video, but the woman does not relent and even smiles at the camera.
A cyber manhunt has allegedly yielded the personal information of the woman, including her ID number, home addresses and phone number.
However, the PRC currently has no laws against animal cruelty. Law makers have proposed a draft law against animal brutality in 2010, but there have been no developments since.
A link to the video is available on Sina Video and Shanghaiist. Viewer discretion is strongly advised due to strong violence and elements of torture.
