In March 2018, British spy Sergei Skripal is believed to have been poisoned in his home with a nerve agent. Wikipedia explains his three pets died:
On 5 April 2018, British authorities said that inside Sergey Skripal's house, which had been sealed by the police, two guinea pigs were found dead by vets, when they were allowed in, along with a cat in a distressed state. The guinea pigs were reported to have died of thirst; the cat was taken for testing to the Porton Down chemical weapons facility, where all three bodies were incinerated.
Russia 24, a Russian state-controlled TV channel, broadcast a news report that discusses how the cat was incinerated (after being euthanized):
what's important, they did not use a specialized crematorium, but a flamethrower.
Was a flamethrower used to incinerate Skripal's cat?
