China students abuse pig

In a disturbing case of animal abuse, students in China were pictured torturing a pig outside a school.

The pictures show the animal being strangled with ropes, stringed up, beaten with metal poles and finally being drowned in bucket.

In one of the pictures, a student was photographed stepping on the animal while strangling it with his hands.

ChinaSmack reported that the students are from a special police school and that authorities have claimed the incident to be a forensics class experiment.

However, netizens believe otherwise and have condemned the students' actions.
