People in Denmark, are fuming after a radio host killed a baby rabbit live on the air during a show.

The 24/7 radio presenter was hosting a debate about animal welfare when he decided to kill the baby rabbit.

Asger Juhl said that he killed the rabbit to show the hypocrisy of animal advocates who eat meat from supermarkets. Juhl hit 9-week-old Alan, on the head three times with a bicycle pump.

The rabbit screamed and died live on the air. Linse Kessler, an animal activist, tried to save Alan. She pursued Juhl around a table, but failed to rescue the rabbit.

Juhl said that he has taken the rabbit home and skinned it with his two young children. He plans to eat the rabbit with his 4 and 6-year-old kids.

The incident has caused an uproar on social networks, with people calling for a boycott of the radio station.
