Throwing Animals in Bins is Wrong, Right?

Throwing Animals in Bins is Wrong, Right?

This is making headline news around the world: After 4 year old tabby cat, Lola, greeted Mary Bale in the street for a quick pat, Mary grabbed her by the scruff of the neck and shoved her into a wheelie bin before walking away. Lola was trapped inside the bin for 15 hours. Luckily, this was all caught on film, otherwise Lola may never have been found!

After the footage was posted on Facebook, people worldwide have been outraged that anyone could do such a thing to a defenceless animal.

Surely throwing an animal into a wheelie bin, any bin, and leaving him or her to die is illegal ... well ... it depends on the animal ...

We know that eggs come from hens and that hens are female. So when one hen stops laying eggs, she gets replaced with another ...female. All the egg industry needs are female birds to keep clucking along.

What happens to a chick if he's born a male? Unfortunately, he ends up in the bin. But the difference here is that when male chicks are thrown into bins at hatcheries across the globe, there are no security cameras filming the people responsible, no one will come to their rescue. Every year in Australia alone, an estimated 12 million day old baby birds are either ground up alive or tossed into a bin on top of their brothers to be gassed to death... and this is legal!

See for yourself what happens inside the world's largest hatchery (the same thing happens here):

No animal (furry or feathered) deserves to be tossed into a bin and left for dead. Fortunately, we can all take a stand against this cruelty by giving eggs the flick. No yolk, it's easy as vegan pie!

Those people are horrific, heartless MONSTERS! I cannot believe such an act is legal. That is horrible. Just because the animals cannot speak English, it does not mean we ignore their rights!!!!!!!

It's all true.  Early last year my hubby and I were desperate for extra money as we just moved to Victoria.  We were so desperate that I took a job at a 'Free Range' chicken farm as a cleaner.  What I saw broke my heart, I lasted 3 days.  Every day I went home crying.  My last job for the night was to take out the trash - I was HORRIFIED when I heard baby chicks in the industrial bins still chirping.  I had to pick up the dead and dying babies off the floor -  the truly terrible thing was this video only shows half of the actual carnage these babies endure.  I've seen baby chicks with terrible head injuries, still alive.  I've seen baby chicks missing wings and legs and beaks, cut, broken and bleeding and still alive. This is the exact same machine that was used at the farm where I had the misfortune to work.  I can still see the broken bodies of baby chicks when I shut my eyes now.  After 3 days my hubby knew that I was so traumatised that I could never go back so he rang the temp agency I worked for and told them what they could do with their job!!  No amount of money could ever make me go back to working at an animal farm.   This was supposed to be a 'FREE RANGE' farm.  What a load of CARP!!

this is absolutely disgusting.
she's obviously mentally unstable.
and animal abuse is often a precursor to human abuse - I don't understand why animal abusers don't get harsher punishment.

That woman is sick, she would have to be to be so depraved.  Instead of 10 years in jail she needs 10 years in a  home for the mentally unstable.  She must have no thinking capacity its a wonder she could even walk down the street. sick bitch

I came upon some teenaged boys one winter morning carrying a bag of newborn puppies that had been thrown into the trash. They gave me the poor little things and I took them home. They stopped crying once they got warm. Someone from the animal shelter later came and took them.

It's really stupid how some people can be SO HEARTLESS. I hate that! It's on the news in Australia too and everyone's saying they should protect the LADY from animal lovers... excuse me? What about that poor kitty kitty?

Is this some sort of stunt or some sort of joke? Some people need to grow up.

I only watched the first 14 seconds of the second video... I don't think I'm gonna like it  sad

Hate the act, not the woman. Pity her. Do not wish ill to her because when you do, it brings bad karma to yourself. I am just perplexed as to what goes through peoples minds to make them do such horrible things. confused
