THIS is the shocking footage of a mouse being tied to a water bottle and tortured with a stick – for chewing a mobile phone cord, it’s claimed.
In the cruel footage filmed in India, the mouse is seen with its paws pulled back around the bottle as its repeatedly hit – at one stage even appearing to wet itself.
The man, from Mandya district in South India is filmed beating the hapless animal while cursing it.
He shows the a severed chord of his charger to the mouse and says: “Why did you bite this causing me a loss of eighty rupees [80p]. Will your father or mother pay me for the loss now.”
As he continues to beat the mouse, he accuses it of eating rice, tomatoes and soap at his home.
In a particularly disturbing segment of the video, the mouse urinates in terror only to get more beatings.
“Why are you p***ing, will you do it again?” he asks.

Indian animal rights activists are outraged after the video emerged earlier this month and have urged officials to trace the man and arrest him for cruelty towards animals.
Animal rights activist Subhendu Mallik said: “While killing a mouse is not legal, this kind of torture is unwarranted.
“This is a crime under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and officials should act.”
