A woman posted a shocking video to the Internet, showing two men burning a cat alive.

Police in Mississippi, have launched an investigation after receiving reports about the disturbing incident.

The woman, Karmen Coleman, 23, posted the video to Snapchat with the caption: “They hell man” with a laughter emoji.

Coleman eventually turned herself in to police and she removed the clip after learning that she is facing charges of rendering criminal assistance.

Police in Moss Point, have now issued arrest warrants for 43-year-old Larry Rostchild Jr., and his nephew Laderrick, 24, after charging them with aggravated cruelty to an animal.

The video of the incident showed the black and white cat being locked in a cage before they poured boiling hot water on the defenseless cat.

Steam can be seen rising from the cage as the cat was heard hissing and meowing at his tormentors. One of the men also kicked the cage.

The cat was later found dead.
