This Youtube video from Brazil is sure to put even the most red-blooded carnivores off their food.
Meet Vitor, who is begging his mother not to eat a raw chicken which she is preparing for the family dinner.
Instead of cooking the chicken, the boy begs his mom to look after the chicken: “I will take care of her.”
“Just please leave her alone.” He repeats before bursting into floods of tears.
This heartbreaking video has already had around three million reproductions on Facebook.
