Cat put into a bin – Police made aware of incident

Humberside Police

Humberside Police have been made aware of a video being circulated showing a girl putting a cat into a wheelie bin.

Following the video being shown in the local media, the mother of a 12 year-old girl has come into a police station with her daughter to say that she is the girl in the video footage.

Police will be conducting an investigation into the incident as causing unnecessary suffering to an animal under Section 4.1 and Section 4.2 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and will be speaking to the 12 year-old girl about the incident and establish the best course of action.

Humberside Police want to thank the mother for accompanying her daughter into the police station, she has acted very responsibly and they can now look at the evidence and speak with the girl and establish the best course of action.

Police have asked for people to let them conduct their enquiries and take the necessary actions.
