This is the first picture of Mary Bale – the woman caught on camera dropping a helpless cat into a wheelie bin.
Camera crews swarmed round the 45-year-old bank worker as she walked through a residential street in Coventry.
The sickening video shows the callous woman cooly coax four-year-old Lola over to her before calmly picking the cat up and dropping her in the wheelie bin.
Bale then closed the bin lid and and walked off – leaving the helpless cat inside for 15 hours. It has been the most viewed video on Youtube over the past 24 hours.
The clip has provoked global outrage with Bale reportedly offered police protection following a string of threats on the internet.
