"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," Mary Bale, the woman who threw a Tabby cat in the trash last week, said. "It was a split second of misjudgment that has got completely out of control." Miss Bale said she was just walking home on Saturday when she saw the cat and decided to play with it. But she told the Sun that she "suddenly thought it would be funny" to put it in the bin. "I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny. I never thought it would be trapped, I expected it to wriggle out," she said. A spokesman for the RSPCA said: "This is now an RSPCA case. Mary Bale has been interviewed by an RSPCA inspector and a full file is being compiled and will be sent for review by the prosecutions department." While Miss Bale admitted she should not have done it, she said she did not deserve to be 'hated' by everyone and assumed the cat would find its own way out of the bin. Her mother also insisted the unmarried bank clerk "loved cats"- and had even kept them as pets as a child. [DM via BI]
