The Arcade game, which is using real dogs as prizes, has sparked outrage online.
A video that is going viral on the Internet shows real dogs inside a claw grabber machine.
The dogs are placed into little buckets and a large metal claw drops down to snatch them.
A person can be seen collecting one of the dogs at the end of the video.
The video, which is believed to have been shot in China, was shared online by biologist Daniel Schneider on Twitter with the caption: “Some of those puppies in that game in #Japan are real.
The video has sparked outrage as one person commented: “That is horrible. Poor things must be terrified” while another said: “That is so cruel! And what if that thing pokes out one or both of their eyes?????”
Elisa Allen, the director of animal rights group PETA said: “Animals aren’t disposable toys, and PETA urges Chinese authorities to look into this video as a matter of urgency – if the dogs are real, it’s not a harmless arcade game but rather a matter of life and death.”
“Live animals – including lobsters, turtles, and crabs – are commonly sold in claw machines across China.”
“They can easily be hurt by being repeatedly dropped, and some have been left to endure a painful death from dehydration or starvation.”
