Cat woman fined £250 for bin dumping cruelty

A woman filmed dumping a cat in a wheelie bin has been fined £250 after admitting a cruelty offence. The RSPCA charged Mary Bale after CCTV cameras showed her throwing four-year-old Lola into a bin outside her owners' home in Coventry. The thing I don't get is that she can't bring herself to explain why she did it. Even if she said she just had a moment of madness that would do. But she has apparently just clammed up. She pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a cat but a charge of not providing the cat with a suitable environment was dropped. Whatever for? Surely a wheelie bin is not a suitable environment for a cat? Or does the legal establishment think otherwise?

It only goes to show that this world is made up of all sorts of people. Human nature can get a bit skewed at times. Her lawyer says she has received hate mail, abusive telephone messages and death threats. Isn't it strange how one moronic moment causes seemingly rational people to excite themselves and resort to base level violence and vitriol? Two wrongs don't make a right and that's why we should be on the look out for the actions of retaliators as much as perpetrators.
