A man has been filmed biting the head off a live rat before posting it on Facebook in an attempt to.... well that's not exactly clear.

Matt Maloney storms into a room shouting nonsense while someone smashes a glass light tube over his back, again for no apparent reason.

He says: "I'm Matt Maloney. Seriously, I don't give a mother-fucking fuck."

Matt and the doomed rat

Maloney then reaches into a cardboard box and picks out a white rat, holding it up to the camera.

He says: "What the fuck is that? A mother-fucking rat."

The Australian then bites it head off.

RSPCA Queensland spokesman Michael Beatty succinctly summed up the situation: "Normal people simply don't do things like this."

Maloney attempted to justify the unnecessary and barbaric slaughter of the animal in a further Facebook post: "The rat in the video was a feeder rat and was always going to die. I fed the body to my snake after the video and it wasn't wasted (I like to share).

"All your comments are cracking me up and not one person out there will be able to say anything that will make me feel bad or make me regret what I did. It's mother nature and man's gotta eat!"

The RSPCA is investigating the incident.
