No excuse

A woman in Coventry caught on CCTV putting a cat into a wheelie bin, where it was trapped for fifteen hours, is now receiving police protection. She has not been arrested as she has not actually committed any criminal offence but is being investigated by the RSPCA in connection with cruelty to animals.

A public outcry led to thousands of people joining social media campaigns to identify the woman in the footage, which you can see here.
