A woman was caught on video burning a dog to death with a blowtorch (shown below).
The clip, which has garnered over 70,000 views since it was uploaded late last week, shows the small dog bound by its feet and struggling to escape from the terrifying situation. As the woman begins burning the dog with the torch, the puppy cries quietly and attempts to free itself before ultimately going limp.
The dog begins to breathe heavily as the woman continues to burn its fur and skin. The disturbing footage shows the flames dissolving the dog's skin.
Near the end of the video, the woman turns her head towards the camera and smiles.
According to reports, the dog died from the burns. It is not known, however, whether it succumbed to its injuries during the video or after the camera stopped rolling.
The video was uploaded to YouTube in Portuguese, and the purpose of it is not clear, according to Inquisitr.
The footage sparked outrage after it went viral, with many calling for the woman to be arrested and charged for the disturbing killing.
"A serial killer in the making," one viewer commented.
"She really needs to rot in prison," another wrote.
