Cruel ... the unknown woman grabs the cat and throws it in the bin
THIS shocking CCTV footage captures the moment a middle-aged woman picks up a cat and drops it into a WHEELIE BIN.
The chubby grey-haired woman, aged around 50, is filmed stroking tabby Lola on a wall outside a house.
But she then suddenly grabs the four-year-old cat by the scruff of the neck before throwing it into a wheelie bin and slamming the lid closed.
Shocking ... do you know who this woman is?
She then calmly walks away.
Terrified Lola was trapped in the bin for 15 HOURS before her owners Stephanie Andrews-Mann and husband Darryl finally found her the following morning.
Footage of the attack was captured by a CCTV camera on Saturday night, which the couple use to monitor the front of their home.
They have now posted the video on YouTube and Facebook in a bid to track down the culprit.
Stephanie, 24, a customer services worker with Ford, said: "I find the entire thing sickening.
"I cannot believe someone would do this to an innocent family pet.

"Lola was a rescue cat and was wary of people when we first got her.
"She has a lovely disposition and really wouldn't hurt a fly. This is what makes the attack on her so shocking.
"I really want to find the woman who did this to her, she must be stopped."
Stephanie lives with Darryl, 26, a mobile phone repairman and her eight-year-old daughter Chloe who is from a previous relationship.
Distraught ... Darryl, Stephanie and Chloe couldn't believe what happened to their cat
The couple installed CCTV outside their home two years ago after their car was repeatedly knocked by careless drivers.
Darryl and Stephanie have put the 1.27 minute clip on YouTube in a bid to track down the woman, which has shocked internet users.
Web user Robert Fletcher commented: "The cat was okay, found shortly afterwards, but there's a mass hunt to find out who the old lady is.
"If you know the woman, get in touch with like the police.
"Actually not the police, probably the RSPCA. Yeah them.
"There's obviously a massive outcry and hunt on to find the lady who did it."
Lynsey Skinner wrote: "Oh my god, Steph, this is insane. Someone must know who she is?
"Have you spoken to your neighbours about it? Crazy and cruel.
"I hope you do report her and she is caught."
The RSPCA and West Midlands Police are now investigating the incident.
A police spokeswoman said: "The cat was left in the bin for 15 hours but emerged unhurt.
"The RSPCA were informed and the investigation into the incident will be led by them, as it is a matter of animal cruelty.
"The police will support the RSPCA's investigation and are currently collecting CCTV of the incident."
