According to the Daily Telegraph, Lola’s owners, Stephanie and Darryl Mann, found their cat fifteen hours after she went missing. The footage of the cat being put in the wheeliee-bin was captured by their home CCTV system and when they discovered it they posted it to YouTube to try and find out who the woman was.

The outcry that developed on Faceook has led to the Police stationing Community Support Officers outside her house and appealing to the public to let them handle the situation.
