It’s a Daoud-eat-dog world: Video shows Saudi men killing a wolf and eating it raw
Any way you look at it, this is just gross. (YouTube)
These hunters track down and kill a wolf and then eat it raw by the side of the road.
The men in this video, shot in a desert in Saudi Arabia, are filmed cutting slices off the animal's still hanging body.
One is seen eating chunks of raw flesh as they all smile for the man recording the action on his mobile phone.
There are several men at the remote meeting point and a number of cars.
According to local media reported the men killed the wolf in Al Jorfia, near Afif city.
The animal is thought to be an Arabian wolf which are critically endangered.
The footage was posted on YouTube and some of those leaving comments have called for the police to look into the case and see if the men have broken any laws.
There are only thought to be between 1,000 and 2,000 wolves in the Middle East but only Oman and Israel have introduced hunting bans which critics say are not well enforced.
In some countries wolves are targeted for particular cruelty.
The Saudi footage has been seen about 130,000 times since it was posted on November 29.
