Police launched an investigation after multiple people were recorded on video beating a rodent to death using a chair, according to police in Canada.

Saskatchewan police said that four men were seen leaving a bar before beating the beaver to death in front of a bakery.

Surveillance video of the bakery showed the four men leaving the bar on Friday. The video shows the beaver hissing at the four men before they attacked it with a chair.

Residents in the area said that they have seen the beaver walking in the streets for the past year. The four suspects face up to 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $25,000 if convicted of animal cruelty.

So far, no arrests have been made.
