A Chinese company in Jiangxi has come under fire after shocking footage circulating online revealed that they had slaughtered a huge whale to serve at the office cafeteria.

The eight-tonne whale was captured on January 5 and butchered by the canteen chefs. Footage of the slaughter circulated on the popular video-sharing platform, Miaopai. 

In the video, one chef is shown sharpening his knife while two others are shown attempting to saw off the tale.

As whales are a protected species in China, local agricultural authorities have announced that they are investigating the case.
