But despite the calls for capital punishment in the comments, it looks like she won’t be charged.
West Midlands police said they received a call on Sunday evening reporting what had happened.
They said the actions caught on CCTV could constitute an animal cruelty offence because of the likely suffering caused to the cat.
The force said it was supporting the RSPCA investigation and has urged the public to leave the matter to the authorities.
The RSPCA said it was due to talk to the woman shortly.
A CRUEL woman filmed dumping a cat in a wheelie bin has been named and shamed today.
Grey-haired Mary Bale became one of Britain’s most hated women when footage of her dropping four-year-old tabby Lola into the green recycling bin was posted on YouTube and Facebook yesterday.
She has since been given police protection — after sickened animal lovers bombarded her with death threats.
Police stepped in today and informally offered the bank worker, aged around 50, protection. Officers are now on duty outside her home.
The guard was put in place as her mum Celia claimed her daughter actually LOVES cats — and doesn’t know what came over her.
She said: “Her father Maurice is hospital in the moment and is very ill. I think she was just in a world of her own. We all are at the moment.
“Mary said she just didn’t know what possessed her, or what came over her, it’s just very strange because she cannot explain her actions at all.
“We’re all living on edge at moment, she doesn’t know what happened.
“She absolutely adores cats, she’s an animal lover, it just doesn’t make sense.
“We’re just hoping we can all get through this because I know a lot of people are not happy about it.
