Man dumped cat in charity clothes bin in Dingwall

A man who grabbed a cat by its neck before dumping it into a charity clothes bin has been ordered to carry 150 hours of unpaid work.

Mateusz Podlawski, 30, denied putting the 18-year-old animal in the container outside a shop in Dingwall on 14 April last year.

Following a trial at Inverness Sheriff Court, Podlawski, of Dingwall, was found guilty of the offence.

Firefighters had to use a hydraulic tool to open the bin and free the cat.
