A golfer has been caught on camera decapitating a goose with a golf club while out in Finland.

While the footage is too distressing to show, the sick thug was seen lining up the back of the bird's neck, as if addressing a golf ball, before taking a full golf swing and slicing the goose's head off.

The video - first revealed on LiveLeak - is said to have been filmed by his mates at the plush Vantaa Golf Park, near the Finnish capital of Helsinki.

As soon as the video was posted on the internet, bosses at the club launched an investigation and called in the local police.

Ville Nurmi, managing director of Vantaa Golf Park, has made a criminal report and said: "We condemn the case completely."

The man who carried out the attack is not a member of the club however he will be in hot water when the authorities catch up with him.

"It is impossible to understand. Such behaviour is in complete contravention of all the values ​​and principles on which the golf game is built," said Finnish Golf Association executive director Juha Korhonen.

"We hope that the police will find out the identity of the person and that he will be punished according to his actions."

The unfortunate bird in the video is said to be a Barnacle Goose, which are also found nesting across northern parts of the UK.
