Police have condemned youths in Glasgow who killed a hamster by tying it to a firework and setting it off.

Officers believe the incident happened in the Possilpark area of the city recently and it was recorded on a video phone.

A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said it had launched a search for those responsible to the "horrific" attack.

The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said such crimes must be taken seriously.

The police spokeswoman said: "We are aware of this horrific crime and inquiries are ongoing to determine the person and persons responsible."

The SSPCA said: "We received some information regarding this incident and we are working closely with Strathclyde Police.

"Any children carrying out an act like this need to be caught because it is not normal behaviour. It needs to be addressed and addressed quickly.

"It is important that people take animal cruelty seriously - it is often a warning of something much worse."

Damn kids wasting good fireworks. A sledge hammer gives a much better explosion.

I used to make parachutes for my pet hamster. He liked the feeling of flight.
