A WOMAN who was caught on CCTV dumping a cat in a wheelie bin has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to the animal, the RSPCA said.
Mary Bale, 45, has also been charged with failing to provide the cat with a suitable environment, contrary to the 2006 Animal Welfare Act, an RSPCA spokesman said.
Bank worker Bale, of St Michael’s Road, Coventry, will appear before magistrates in the city on October 19 to answer the charges.
Footage of Bale throwing the four-year-old tabby, named Lola, into the bin sparked outrage and made international headlines, with some animal lovers calling for her death on social networking site Facebook.
