The fate of sick woman, 45 year old Mary Bale, who shocked the nation and the world by placing a cat in a wheelie bin, has been settled with a £25 million pound fine.
Miss Bale is assured by her former Bank employers that they will settle the fine for her as a special bonus payment.
But Felix Caterwall, Animal Protection Chief Inspector, feels Miss Bale has got off too lightly.
'She should have had a life sentence for that dastardly act. We must deter other monsters who would stop at nothing in their cruelty to cats' he declared.
In Coventry, where Mary Bale has been sent, no one will talk to her. Young boys annoy her but making charming cat noises outside her house. Young girls, who used to ask her to stroke their hair, are keeping away from the wicked ogre.
So, once again, justice is done. Or is it? How many crimes against cats have gone unreported? Did Miss Bale commit a series of cat crimes which she has never admitted to? Is she the Yorkshire Ripper?
We must be on the look out. Then, with luck, the international media can again witness the heroic courage of the British people when faced by cat atrocity.
