MALACCA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysia's animal lovers have lodged 30 police reports against three men over photographs posted on Facebook showing them feeding live cats to pythons.

They demand action be taken against the men, said to be snake charmers from Kuala Lumpur, for animal cruelty.

The photographs have since been deleted.

Manager Intan Nuraida Rahman, 34, said the men had written in their Facebook post on Jan 5, 2014, that the cats were collected from the streets and fed alive to the snakes.
