A teenager has caused outrage after she apparently microwaved her pet guinea pig alive.
Identified as Vitoria Muller, 16, from Brazil, she allegedly put the guinea pig into the microwave after being told to do so by some friends.
The footage is distressing, but we must point out that the animal was seized by the authorities and taken to a vets. They said that it was not injured despite its ordeal.
Some people started tweeting #PunicaoParaVictoria – punishment for Vitoria – and the girl has since deleted her social media accounts.
