Working with animals on live television can be a perilous process.
And one animal proved that even the cameras can’t curb natural instinct.
A video of a dog pilfering a snack during a live TV broadcast has become the toast of the internet.
The hilarious six-second clip appears to come from a segment on a live television show.

In the video, a male interviewer puts a microphone in front of a female guest beside a food stall, but in the bottom right corner of the screen, the dog can be spotted stealing a rather delicious looking empanada.
