Sickening video footage shows a bobcat spurting blood and writhing in agony after being shot by a hunter wearing night vision goggles.
The graphic footage was uploaded to the Facebook page of hunting supplier Night Goggles, whose slogan boasts that their products are ‘redefining fair chase.’
It shows the majestic creature slowly stalking through an unidentified patch of American scrubland, while its killer watches through his sophisticated goggles.
Moments later he fires a shot, hitting the stunned animal, which flails around in uncomprehending agony while squirting its blood over the grass.
After a few seconds of horrific pain, the animal dies – with its cold-hearted killer later posing for a photo beside its lifeless corpse.
The stomach-churning video was viewed almost 9,000 times, with sickos also making jokes about the poor cat’s fate.
Tom Dixon, from Cloverleaf, OH, said: ‘That cat didn’t land on its feet lol.’
Joe Craig said: ‘Clean up on aisle three’, while logger Tyke Lowery, from Circleville, OH, wrote: ‘Blood trail should’ve been easy to follow!’
