Puppy-Throwing Girl Caught in Bosnia
September 3, 2010
Police in Bosnia say they believe they have located a young woman shown in a video throwing puppies into a river.
Police in the central Bosnian town of Bugojno say they have found the girl they suspect is seen on the video killing six newborn puppies by throwing them into the river one by one.
The disturbing video provoked worldwide outrage after being posted online earlier this week.
Police say they have located the girl, who is a juvenile, from leads given by animal protection groups in the country.
The girl’s parents will soon be questioned, police said.
Under recently adopted animal protection law, people can be fined up to 5,000 ($A7,030) for cruel treatment of animals.
UK Woman Apologizes for Dumping Cat in Trash
September 1, 2010
Shamed ‘cat dumper’ Mary Bale has been signed off work with stress following the worldwide furore over her wheelie bin scandal, it emerged today.
The bank clerk became a hate figure when CCTV footage showed her dropping four-year-old Lola into a bin ‘as a joke’.
She has now been signed off work at the Royal Bank of Scotland on full pay for at least three weeks.
Bank chiefs have come under increasing pressure to sack the 45-year-old after customers threatened to boycott the branch in Rugby.
A source at the bank said: ‘She has been under increasing stress from work and has signed off sick.
‘She has a doctor’s note saying she is not fit to work at the moment because she is too stressed.
‘Bosses do not expect her back into work for at least two or three weeks.’
Unmarried Miss Bale, from Coventry, could also face prosecution by the RSPCA after the tabby cat was trapped in the bin for 15 hours.
After the incident, Miss Bale was led away by police to be interviewed by RSPCA officers.
However, a spokesman said the decision to prosecute Miss Bale ‘could take quite a while’ as ‘we want to do a thorough investigation’.
