The clip was posted by the Twitter account @protect_wildlife on Monday, without any identifying details about the shooter or where the incident took place, save for the guide calling the man by last name, potentially saying, 'Mr. Goney' or 'Mr. Gooney.'

'This "hunter" sneaked up on a SLEEPING #Lion and killed it! How brave, how sporting - HOW C**TISH!!!,' the tweet which included the video read, prompting thousands of responses in outrage over the spectacle.

One person wrote, 'I live to pour boiling hot water on him while he's sleeping and watch him scream in agony - that was horrible to watch.'

The video shows an unnamed hunter, who is referred to by last name but inaudibly, pointing a rifle at a sleeping lion while he's being coached to shoot.

The hunter fires one shot, and awakes the lion, which arches its back in pain and looks around at where the attack has come from.

Before the lion can understand the assault against it, the hunter fires a second and third shot.

Many users responded to the footage, which was also shared by an account listed as belonging to 'Danny Smith' under username '@doglab.'

Several called out the cowardice of attacking the wild animal at rest.

'A sleeping lion, wow what a big man! [angry, cursing face emoji],' wrote one user.

Another still called for a punishment in kind, replying, 'More like fed 2 a pride of lions & eaten alive.'

Others suggested penalties for the actions of the unidentified men in the video. 'In my book that should be 5 years in jail. Grotesque,' one user wrote

More than a few people called for the naming of the man in the clip.

'I pray he is named and shamed and becomes a total social pariah and hounded out of existence,' wrote user @CptCloggy.

'Disgusting, loathesome excuse for a human. I'm not religious but there is a special kind of hell for psychopaths like this . I feel sick.'
