UK cat-dumping woman may now lose her bank job due to outcry

By Laura Trowbridge     Aug 28, 2010 in Crime
Mary Bale, the UK woman who was caught on CCTV grabbing a cat and dumping it into a garbage bin, is now facing the very real possibility of losing her job due to the public's outrage against her.
Mary Bale works for the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) in Rugby, Warwickshire, England. But it may not be her job for much longer, if customers have their way.
According to The Sun, the 45-year-old spinster was called to meet with her bosses the other day after threats from the bank's customers became a concern.
Police had to escort Bale to the bank on Thursday where she snuck into a back entrance. There has been a 24-hour police guard at her mother's home, where Bale has been trying to lay low because of fear of vigilante attacks.
The last Digital Journal report of Mary Bale explained why she has become one of the most hated women in the world. She is also facing possible animal cruelty charges and up to six months in prison if the RSPCA decides to prosecute her.
Customers are threatening to boycott the RBS branch Bale works for until she is fired. Officials for the bank said the matter is being taken "very seriously". But they are not saying if Bale has been or will be fired.
Bank customer Kim Davis said she will walk out if Bale continues to work at the Rugby branch. "I have two cats myself and they're the most precious things in the world. I'd never be served by this despicable woman," she said.
Another customer said: "It's shocking somebody you trust with money and you think leads a respectable life can do something like this."
Another man said: "I was disgusted. She's brought shame on herself and the rest of the country."
Lola's owners are calling for Bale to be prosecuted now.
Facebook has had to remove groups that have formed against Mary Bale after death threats were issued.
A spoof video of a cat's revenge against Bale has become a YouTube hit.
The Sun even has a game you can play to slam the garbage lid down on Mary Bale's head before she disappears.
