This Man Speared A Spider With A Dart And People Are Upset

A man has been the target of ridicule on social media after he was filmed throwing a dart at a spider, spearing it to the wall.

After the spider is struck by the dart, it can be seen writhing as it tries to free itself.

The man who impaled the arachnid then turns to the camera and says "who's the man?"

When the camera is zoomed in on the pinned spider, a woman off camera can be heard saying "that is cruel".

Those sentiments have been echoed on social media as the video drew outrage from those advocating against cruelty to animals.

It is unclear when and where the video was shot, but the people involved appear to have Scottish accents.

The video gained wide attention online in recent days after being posted last week.
