This is truly sick: here's surveillance footage from outside of a school in Coventry, England that shows a woman walk up to a cat, pet it for a few seconds, and then pick it up/throw it into a garbage bin.

[There was a video here]

Thankfully, the cat is reportedly doing OK after being found 15 hours later.

Obviously, if anyone is able to identify the woman in the above footage, please contact the proper authorities.
