A woman in her underwear arriving on a white horse at a packed nightclub - and being greeted by flashing cameras - didn't go over well with Miami Beach authorities. The man pulls the scared horse out of the club.

In the video, a dancer sits atop a white horse, which starts bucking wildly as it seemingly got spooked by the sensory overload of the nightclub.

The video was posted by Miami Beach activist Michael DeFilippi, who encouraged people to share the "shocking footage".

"You guys are absolutely disgusting allowing animal cruelty inside your club", one user posted.

As weird as the incident is, it's not the first time that a horse has been an attraction at a USA nightclub.

But the incident involving the horse this week may not have been the first time the club has employed live animals to entertain it's clientele.

"I was disgusted and offended that any legitimate businessperson would think this was an appropriate action to take", said Morales.

After the video surfaced, a social media campaign demanded justice for the horse.

In the posting, leezamariejay calls out the Mokai Lounge, 235 23rd St., in all capital letters, calling the act "animal cruelty" and then says, "I will not stop posting and spamming everyone's feed until this club has been penalized for their crime". Shame on you. Your event manager should find some other sort of entertainment and lay off the animal cruelty. "This activity was not permitted, and as soon as we became aware, I immediately instructed staff to act swiftly in remedying this situation".
