This from BBC News:
Lola was left unhurt by her ordeal.
A woman filmed dumping a cat in a wheelie bin has said she is “profoundly sorry” for “a split second of misjudgement”. The RSPCA said it would be interviewing Mary Bale after CCTV cameras showed her throwing four-year-old Lola into a bin outside her owners’ home in Coventry.
A Facebook group calling for Ms Bale’s death has been removed, the social networking site said.
Police said they were speaking to the 45-year-old about her personal safety.
Lola was rescued from the bin 15 hours later by her owner, Darryl Mann.
“It was a split second of misjudgement that has got completely out of control”, said Mary Bale.
Outrage was sparked among animal lovers earlier this week after the film – from security cameras outside their home – was posted online by Mr Mann’s wife Stephanie. The couple, of Bray’s Lane in Coventry, have said they are both “stunned” by the public reaction to the footage.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Ms Bale, a bank worker from Stoke, in Coventry, said: “I want to take this opportunity to apologise profusely for the upset and distress that my actions have caused. I cannot explain why I did this, it is completely out of character and I certainly did not intend to cause any distress to Lola or her owners. It was a split second of misjudgement that has got completely out of control. I am due to meet with the RSPCA and police to discuss this matter further and will co-operate fully with their investigations.”
