Sparks amongst animal lovers have fired across the web after shocking footage of the moment a fish was forced to smoke a cigarette was released online.
In the clip, the fish – which appears to be tropical – can be seen on a plank of wood with a tobacco stick jammed in its mouth.
Web users have voiced their concern via social media and commenting tools on YouTube.
One YouTube user said: “Human is [the] most cruel creature in the planet.”
Another proclaimed: “Disgusting! Sick people!”
The clip emerged on Monday 4 August with some labelling it “a comedy.”
