A 21 year old woman has been arrested by the Russian authorities after her name was linked into the photos and videos of tortured and brutally killed animals.
One of the photos shared via social media shows a terrified kitten with a knife held up at its cute little face.
Alina Orlova, was arrested while she was waiting for a connecting flight from her home city into the north-western part of Russia.
According to the reports, she and her friend 19-year-old friend Alena Savchenko, who goes by the name Kristina Hemp on social media, allegedly posted horrific photographs and videos of themselves torturing cats and dogs until they are dead.
Reports also mentioned that the two young women did it for “bloodlust” and nothing else.
On her defense, Alina Orlova said that the said photos are all fake and are products of photo editing application Photoshop.
She also added that she was just being framed for some reasons that she didn’t know about.
“I would like to speak in my defence. I do not know who has put this stuff to the Internet – it is not the first time somebody wants to frame me. But I did not kill anyone and do not intend to kill,”
said Alina Orlova upon knowing the reasons of her arrest.
Among those images that are allegedly posted by Orlova and Savchenko shows one dog nailed and crucified against a wall and another dog that was brutally shot with an air gun while it was hanging by its collar.
There was also an image of a cat that the two girls allegedly cut open to pull out its internal organs.
These graphic images got the attention of animals’ rights group that ultimately called the attention of the police for the immediate arrest of the people behind the horrific act.
Concerned citizens and animal rights group are already calling out the authorities to put a stop to these kinds of acts.
Some groups are calling for heavier penalties against the people that commits such brutal crime to defenseless animals.
