This past Saturday evening a woman dumped a rescue cat into a garbage bin on the side of a residential street in Coventry, U.K. Fifteen hours later owner Darryl Mann
: "I came down to feed Lola on Sunday morning but couldn’t find her anywhere. It was really hot day outside and I searched nearby alleyways but suddenly heard a tiny meowing coming from the bin. I looked inside and I found her in the bin, she was terrified and covered in her own mess....At first I thought she’d somehow climbed inside the bin herself but when I checked the CCTV
I was gobsmacked to see some a woman had done it deliberately." Mann posted the video to YouTube
in an effort to find the perpetrator. As a result, the woman was identified by this morning.
The RSPCA is investigating
"In a statement, Coventry police said they were supporting the investigation and 'urge the public to leave the matter to be dealt with correctly by the authorities.'
The woman had not been arrested 'because she has not committed a criminal offence.' the force said. 'The woman is not being given police protection but Coventry police are making sure that the woman is OK, as they would any other member of their community.'"*
