Footage emerged over the bank holiday weekend of an alleged attack on a homeless person in Ireland.

The homeless man, who is seen lying on the ground appears in frightened, distressed and disoriented state as the youth runs towards him bellowing an animalistic roar and then chanting “yup yup yup get up” while waving his hand towards him.

Irish social media accounts have been abuzz with outrage as people are demanding that Gardai investigate the incident with others attempting to identify the thug as well as his defenceless victim and their whereabouts. Watch the footage below:
