On Wednesday, CCTV footage of the men dumping a cat into a self-service laundry dryer was posted on social media by the Malaysian Animal Association

The video showed the men putting coins into the dryer to activate it and watched as the machine whirred the animal, which was reportedly pregnant.

However, the cat was only discovered eight hours later when a customer found it dead inside the dryer with its blood splattered all over the machine.

The brutal incident took place at Gombak Ria Park at 12.50am on Tuesday, 11 September.
