One morning in August 2010, Darryl Mann of Coventry, England left his house and heard mewing coming from inside the family wheelie-bin. It was their cat Lola, who had evidently spent the night there having fallen in and becoming trapped.
Now, it just so happened that the Mann family had a CCTV camera set up in their front garden to discourage the colourful inhabitants of the area, so it made sense to look at the tapes to find out how Lola had managed to get trapped in the first place.
What they saw WTFed the shit out of just about everybody.
Crazy Cat-Hating Lady
Before their partly-horrified, partly-bemused eyes, a genuinely surreal scene unfolded. The elderly lardbeast seen above approaches Bincat, greets her, looks to the bin, looks to the cat, looks around to check that nobody's watching then finally scruffs the cat, drops it in the bin and walks on with a stride that seems to suggest "Right, that's that sorted then."
—Bincat's eloquent owners
From there, the passage of information goes like this:
- The owners upload the footage to Failbook and Youtube with the hope of identifying the attacker.
- The video goes viral, and is picked up by the old media.
- The story hits national news and filters back to the internet and into social media sites via NORPs.
- The drama bomb goes off.
Yee-Haw! We Gon' Have Us A Facebook Lynchin'!
The attack took place on the 21st of August on Caturday at about 8PM. By the 25th, Facebook groups such as "I DISLIKE THE AWFUL WOMAN WHO PUT A CAT IN THE BIN" and "The woman who put a cat in the bin should be locked in a bin" had generated around five thousand, and police moved in to put the perpetrator - one Mary "Hambeast" Bale - under popo protection.
The Mail ran the story. 24 hours later the number of Facefuckers following the story had increased to 18,000 and the death threats and lulz were flowing like a river in spring.
She did it for the lulz
This was followed by swift vengeance:
Update 20 Sep 2010 - Lard Ass Cunt Face to be hauled before Court on 19 October 2010
Mary has been charged by the RSPCA with two counts of animal cruelty. Quote "Mary Bale, of St Michael's Road, has been charged with causing unnecessary suffering to a cat and of not providing the animal with a suitable environment".
The psychopathic cunt will appear before Coventry Magistrates Court on October 19. Due to Britain's extremely soft legal system, it's unlikely she will actually be punished. Rather than being locked in a wheelie bin in her own faeces and urine, she will probably be given a suspended sentence, basically a light slap on the wrist.
THE RESULTS ARE IN
Mary bale has been fined £250 for acts of animal cruelty after pleading guilty.
in adiition she was ordered to pay costs of £1,171 and banned from keeping or owning animals for the next five years.
Many people are RAGGGGING aginst the desision not to kill that piece of shit.
Serial killers Linked To Cat Torture!
Some argue that future serial killers usually torture animals before moving onto the bigger game. The bizarre nonchalance with which Miss Bale handles the animal seems to tell the story of a definite Luka Magnotta in the making.
According to a psychologist of Middlesex University, Bale's behavior is cause for concern. "People who are cruel to animals usually feel a lack of power in their own lives...they may feel helpless, lack authority and want to exercise control over something or someone who cannot retaliate. After experimenting with animal cruelty they can go on to target other vulnerable groups, like children or the elderly. If you look at the history of many serious criminals they often started by cutting the whiskers or tails off cats."

—Naruto Uzumaki clearly hates pussy.
- The BBC now decides to write an article on 4chan as a result of anonymous' contribution in raping Mary Bale's phone number. Some of the comments are noticeable, and are probably all written by Bill O'Reilly.
