This is the horrifying moment that an orphaned baby bear is brutally battered over the head with a metal pipe before its lifeless body is dragged away by its drunk attacker.
Shocking footage of the incident shows a Russian man striking the cub with the 5ft pipe as his friend looks on and laughs.
The young bear had been foraging for food with its sibling in woods near an oil field in Khanty-Mansiysk, western Serbia, when it was approached by two men drinking from large beer bottles.
The cubs had lost their mother just weeks earlier.
The video, which was filmed by a man working at the Priobskoye oil field, in Khanty-Mansiysk, western Siberia, was met with widespread outrage after it was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month.
The cameraman, known only as Alexey, said that the cubs, who were recently orphaned, had grown used to being fed by him and his colleagues. The cub that was attacked has not been seen since.
He was filming the animals as they left the woods when two drunken men, drinking from large bottles of beer, stepped out a car and approached the animals.
