Many social media users have expressed anger over a graphic video that has gone viral showing a giraffe being killed by a Saudi man in South Africa.

The graphic video, published on video sharing site YouTube, shows a giraffe roaming around a forested area.

According to local Saudi newspaper Arab News, the 58-second-long video was taken by a group of Saudis who were on a road trip in one of South Africa’s jungles on a Safari where they found the animal.

After the giraffe was shot and killed it was then taken to a different location to be skinned and for its meat to be stored in what is described in the video as “a large refrigerator.”
