A disturbing Snapchat video is currently being investigated by the Pennsylvania Game Commission after two teens allegedly tortured an injured deer.
Fox News reports the video was uploaded Saturday on Facebook showing one of the boys kicking the buck in the face while his friend filmed the abuse. The animal appeared to have been shot already and was laying on the ground next to a tree. After grabbing the buck by his antlers, one of the teens placed his foot onto its neck while his friend kicked him in the face again several times. Since the video’s upload, officials of the Pennsylvania Game Commission said in a statement that they are currently investigating the incident after complaints from Facebook users:

Officials say the video may have been recorded on the first day of the hunting season in Pennsylvania. A petition was created to ban the teens from hunting and hoping that police will charge them for abusing the injured deer. It has reached over 219,000 signatures.
