CUTE puppies, kittens and bunnies are being crushed to death by stiletto-wearing "crush goddesses" in a wave of sick cruelty videos being shared online.
Horrified animal rights activists have called on social media giants to do more to stop the twisted internet subculture which sees people often share the sick videos for the sexual pleasure of their viewers.
Disturbing clips uncovered by The Sun Online show women – the so-called "crush goddesses" – wearing stilettos as they stamp baby animals to death.
It took just minutes for us find the footage which is easily accessible through social media sites like Twitter and search engines like Google.
The perpetrators are often female and appear glamorous as they boast they are indulging in "crush fetish porn" – with both individuals and groups taking part in the disturbing sessions.
Many of the "goddesses" appear to be from Asian countries but some of the truly twisted clips appeared to involve Western women.
The tamer videos involved squashing cockroaches or crickets into mush – but the most vile involved the brutal deaths of gerbils, kittens, bunnies and puppies.
Horrific footage far too gruesome show features the animals suffering as they are slowly stamped and crushed by the stiletto heeled "pornstars".
And this slow, brutal death, appears to be the sick twisted point of the vile videos – which are video by pervs for sexual pleasure.
Ashley Mauceri, director of law enforcement outreach for the Humane Society of the United States, told The Sun Online: "Perpetrators and participants span the globe, making tracking them incredibly challenging for law enforcement.
"It is possible that a person could upload a crush video to one of the popular social media sites.
"Individuals who find this sort of material should immediately report it to authorities."
The Humane Society of the United States receives between 12 and 20 new cases of animal crush abuse each year.
In the UK people crushing animals to death is illegal under animal cruelty laws.
But the United States has gone further former US President Donald Trump signed the PACT act which specifically outlawed the sick fetish in 2019.
Ms Mauceri told The Sun Online: "The first person charged under the PACT Act posted horrifying videos of animal torture to her Instagram account.
"Typically though, the animal crush industry exists on the dark web which also makes it almost impossible to quantify the size and scale."
So far, federal prosecutors have only brought cases against producers of "crush" videos.
Ashley Nicole Richards became the first woman in the US to be convicted of distributing "crush" videos after she was exposed back in 2012.
In the films, the then 24-year-old would torture and maim animals for viewers' sexual gratification – landing herself with 10 years in prison when the case came to court in 2015.
Richards would sometimes chop off their limbs and urinate on them while making sexual comments to the camera.
In one of the videos seen by authorities Richards punctured a cat's eye with a shoe heel – and she was jailed on three counts of cruelty to animals.
It comes as The Sun Online revealed monkeys are being tortured, exploited and even killed in a wave of sick cruelty YouTube videos.
Animal rights activists have slammed the social media giant for continuing to host the disturbing clips which appear to be part of a huge trend of the vids being filmed in South East Asia.
Animal rights organisation PETA told the Sun Online: "YouTube existing policies should see these horrific channels taken down immediately, but their content moderation – and response to PETA – has been lacking."
And meanwhile, other animal torture videos also were found on YouTube as the wave of sick content proves difficult to police for the tech firms.
