Police are looking for a man who was seen on video killing a rat and swallowing its head, police in Australia said.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in Queensland, said that investigators are looking for Matt Maloney, also known as Mad Matt, after he recorded a video of himself torturing a rat.
The video that was uploaded to the Internet, shows Mad Matt entering a room before being hit by a fluorescent light. He then grabbed a live rat and bit off its head.
He chewed and swallowed it along with several shots of vodka.
He was then punched in the face and hit on the back with a chair. Mad Matt then challenged viewers to beat his stunt. The video, which was condemned by the RSPCA, went viral and has been viewed more than 200,000 times.
Police are preparing to file charges of animal cruelty. Mad Matt defended his actions, saying that he killed the rat quicker than a snake.
