The nation has reacted angrily to news that a woman who was filmed dumping a cat in a wheelie bin has avoided the death penalty and will merely be charged with a couple of animal cruelty offenses.
Mary Bale has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to a cat that turned out to be absolutely fine anyway, and of not providing the animal with a suitable environment for a couple of hours.
Angry cat lover Sheila Williams told us, “Paedos being put up in hotels, child murderers getting new identities, and now people who put cats in bins are allowed to live. This country has gone to the dogs!”
“How someone with such blatant disregard for the temporary welfare of a harmless animal can get away with still being alive makes a mockery of our justice system.”
“I haven’t been this angry since the government stopped me riding my horse whilst watching my pack dogs tear apart wild foxes for my entertainment.”
Cat in a Bin
An RSPCA spokesperson explained that they had used all legal avenues open to them, and that they were petitioning the government to reintroduce capital punishment for people who put cats in bins.
“Our research shows that putting a cat in a bin escalates quickly to throwing a bucket of water over a cat, or kicking a cat over a fence – these people need to be stopped.”
“We have become weak in this country, we need to deal with these people appropriately. Do you know how many people put cats in bins in Iran? None, that’s how many.”
“If we copied the Iranians and Mary Bale had her hands chopped off it would send absolutely the right message to would-be ‘cat in a bin’ criminals.”
