Jonthan Hildebrand posted a video on YouTube showing a man kicking a squirrel into the Grand Canyon.

In the video, a man can be seen laying a trail of treats leading towards the edge of the canyon.

When the rodent reaches the edge, the man kicks it off the cliff.

NY Daily News reported that the canyon can reach up to a height of 1.8km.

It is almost certain that the fall would have killed the creature.

Mr Hildebrand wrote that he "did not realise what was happening until it was too late". He claims that the men who committed the cruel act were French.

Here's a look at the despicable act.
