Shocking CCTV footage has captured the moment a middle-aged British woman picks up a cat – and then dumps it into a wheelie bin.
The grey-haired woman, aged around 50, was filmed stroking tabby Lola on a wall outside a house, The Sun reports.
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 on Sunday (local time).
