Shocking video shows woman dumping cat in a wheelie-bin

August 23, 2010 | by | 39 Comments

This shocking CCTV footage captures the moment a middle-aged woman picks up a cat – and drops it into a WHEELIE-BIN.

The chubby grey-haired woman, aged around 50, is filmed stroking tabby Lola on a wall outside a house on Brays Lane in Coventry at around 11am on Sunday.

But she then suddenly grabs the four-year-old cat by the scruff of the neck before throwing it into a wheelie bin and slamming the lid closed. She then calmly walks away.

Terrified Lola was trapped in the bin for 15 HOURS before her owners Stephanie Andrews-Mann and husband Darryl finally found her the following morning.

Footage of the attack was captured by a CCTV camera which the couple use to monitor the front of their home.

They have now posted the video on YouTube and Facebook in a bid to track down the culprit.

Darryl, 26, a mobile phone repair man, said: ”I’d like to know how she would feel if she was stuck in a bin for 15 hours without food or drink.

”I came down to feed Lola on Sunday morning but couldn’t find her anywhere.

”It was really hot day and I 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 woman had done in deliberately.”

Darryl lives with Stephanie, 24, a customer services worker with Ford and her eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Chloe.

The couple installed CCTV outside their home two years ago after their car was repeatedly knocked by careless drivers.

Darryl and Stephanie have put the 1.27 minute clip on YouTube in a bid to track down the woman, which has shocked internet users.

Web user Robert Fletcher commented: ”The cat was okay, found shortly afterwards, but there’s a mass hunt to find out who the old lady is.

”If you know the woman, get in touch with like the police.

”Actually not the police, probably the RSPCA. Yeah them.

”There’s obviously a massive outcry and hunt on to find the lady who did it.”

Lynsey Skinner, wrote: ”Oh my god steph this is insane. Someone must know who she is?

”Have you spoken to your neighbours about it? Crazy and cruel.

”I hope you do report her and she is caught.”

The RSPCA and West Midlands Police are now investigating the incident.

A police spokeswoman said: ”The cat was left in the bin for 15 hours but emerged unhurt.

”The RSPCA were informed and the investigation into the incident will be led by them, as it is a matter of animal cruelty.

”The police will support the RSPCA’s investigation and are currently collecting CCTV of the incident.”

    I can't believe what I have just seen. I really hope they do catch this woman. Who does she think she is? I think she should be trapped in an enclosed space for 15hours to see how she would feel. What an idiot!!!

    I live in northeast ohio and am very irritated by that lady and I feel she needs 2 b seriously punished. Not that I am sadistic but if she pulled that in my neighborhood there's a good chance she woukd be clawed by the 3 cats I have with me.

    This is not the first time she's done it!

    Her victims will always be the ones that can't defend for themselves.

    How evil do you need to be, to do something like this and walk away like nothing happened? Think about it…

    If they don't catch her now, they'll have to clean up her crime scenes in the future, and explain to grieving families why they didn't take her crimes against animals seriously.

    Hunt her down!

    Remember, God Almighty sees all and He will punish this woman duly. You ask me, she should have to spend a day in an isolation tank with no food, water or bathroom. Let her see what it really feels like. Not long enough to kill her but enough to punish!

    omg i was so shocked wen i saw this ive got a cat myself & if any1 hurt her i wud go off me head tht poor cat 15 hours on it own i fink we shud find tht woman(monster) & lock her in a bin 4 15 hours tht is just pure evil.

  12. Nancy Laxton says:

    With all kidding aside, I seriously believe that this woman should be held for 15 hours in a very small dark cell…. With no toilet or anything. That doesn't equal what the cat was put through though. The woman should also be charged a hefty fine to be paid to the cat owners to spend on kitty and also pay the rspca a cash settlement towards their care of animals.

  22. Caitlin says:

    This is just sick and wrong, what was she thinking?!

    I think she should get a good few fines and she should be locked up herself with no food, water OR toilet.

    If anyone ever did anything like that to one of my three cats I would've gone MENTAL! Gosh.

    At least Lola is now safe in her owner's arms:)

    Now she is a one heartless stupid woman… but all the hypocrisy of the people who suddenly became very aware to animal rights IS DISGUSTING! Why do you shut-up about the cruelty to animals in China?! Huh? Is it because it easier to threaten and curse some dumb white lady who did a relatively small thing to deserve it???

    My answer:

    Cat's are hunters (because of humanity in the first place) it wants to hunt to attack, and brings it's hunting instinct over on to the woman who then turns it on to the cat, that quite often happens between people and animals it's a sad form of miscommunication, the woman has probably sub come to over animal product use, (al the same it's for humanity inexcusable, people's intellect should be greater then the instinct, animals represent our emotions, and weaknesses.Ultimately it's because of the collective meat eating of people, that's what turns meat eating animals into predators, meat eating animals are originally there to clean up carcasses and nearly dead animals (voluntary euthanasia), billions of farm animals are being (raped) and forced created, (slaughtered and consumed) everything is being dragged along with it, to many meat eating animals, insects, to many, mice, to many people. . . (who will all be killed again), (disasters, abortions, accidents,miscommunication, misbehavior, pandemic diseases, plagues, addictions, murders, up to cannibalism).

    humanity would do best to go vegan, animals are not to eaten or to wear, they eat and drink up the food of the people (in the third world) to create 1 pound of animal product it takes from 6 to 36 pound of vegetable food, and from 50 to 200 times more clean drinkwater, not even to mention the cruelty to animals and other damages to the enviroment.

    The real fight in the world is over the animal products use, that's also were the solution is.

    the best, most delicious en healthy, way out of all the problems is to go vegan, animals do not belong in peoples houses, stables slaughterhouse, plates, (or bins) they belong among their own in the wild that's were they will give us the real health, wellbeing and joy.

    Give the children a future instead of a past.

    Or you could keep your cat inside instead of letting it run free next to a street. Sure it's mean to put the cat in the bin, but it's also irresponsible to let your cat run free where it's likely to get killed by a car.

    I hope you keep your cat inside for now on. She is one hateful, crazy witch. God (and hopefully the media and witnesses) will get her.

  31. Rosie says:

    I bet she's not even aware that she was video taped. My hunch is that she'll walk by again and do it again – since she's already proved she's sick in the head…. repeat offender for sure!!

    Everyone check your bins daily!!

    What a sick, sad pathetic excuse for a person!!

    Post her picture on every pole & bulletin board in your neighborhood. She has to come out again sometime!

    Lessons learned ?????

    Keep cats in the house when your not home, and at night.

    Make sure they are fixed so not too interesting to the opposite sex kitty.

    Make sure they wear collars with tags [name and phone #] and a bell.

    At least that way in future people will recognize this isn't a stray. That is not an excuse but a safety issue.

    That woman needs to be shackled to a post in the middle of town for a couple of hours, while this video is running on a large screen beside her.

    Try and forgive her soon though….she isn't worth your energy. But wait til after she is charged to the FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW! Sue for damages, stress etc….you were distressed not knowing where your cat was…. and couldn't sleep etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

    inike de wild stop talking bollocks its about a cat not what we bleeding eat

  38. Donna says:

    This woman needs to pay for what she has done. Letting her get away with it is unfair to this animal. I personally would like to see this woman spend 15 hours in that bin without water and food.

  39. Anonymous says:

    It is people like this that make me want to see the stocks brought back, installed in the middle of town, and WELL-USED!!! A day or two having to deal with the public response to this kind of thing MIGHT cure someone so callous and vengeful. She was, i am sure, hoping the cat would NOT be found, so it is not a case of the cat being trapped for 15 hours. She wanted that cat DEAD. Karma can be a B*$&h.
