The big buzz going on Facebook for the past few days is of a 45 year old woman, named Mary Bale in Coventry, England being caught gently petting Lola, a four year old tabby cat, then grabbing it by the scruff of the neck opening a nearby green garbage bin and dumping the cat in it and closing the lid then walking away, where the cat wasn’t discovered by her owner for about 15 hours. Her actions were all caught on tape, which is the tape circulating like wildfire over at Facebook.
For awhile no one knew who this woman was but thanks to her being caught on tape was later identified.
Here’s an excerpt from one article which includes that now famous video:
She was questioned by RSPCA animal protection officers, but police said they could not make an arrest because tossing a cat into a dumpster is not considered a crime, which obviously is scandalous if you ask me!
A spokesperson for RSPCA said they are “appalled” by the abuse and called it “a mindless act of animal cruelty.”
Officials will continue to examine the case and may ultimately charge the woman with animal cruelty because of the suffering Lola likely experienced.
When interviewed, Mary Bale couldn’t figure out what all the fuss was about as her attitude was that “it was only a cat”…??!@&**_)(*&^% 🙁
People worldwide are so outraged by Mary Bale’s cruel act, that she’s been getting death threats and is under police protection.
What happened there was ANIMAL CRUELTY! That cat, Lola was stuck in that bin for 15 hours, and what if the garbage was collected while Lola was still inside?
One of the other main problems is that Lola’s owners aren’t doing anything… Sorry but if anyone did that to one of my cats – they’ll be definitely more than sorry, and will probably shove her in a bin for 15 hours myself!
Are you as outraged as I am about this? And what do you think about this cruel being called Mary Bale?
Oh and here’s a funny video made called “Revenge of the Cat” in response to Mary Bale’s actions 😉
