The Scottish SPCA is investigating the incident

Mairi Wright, Scottish SPCA inspector, said: “We haven’t been able to locate the cat but I have requests in to view CCTV in the area. The cat is said to be brown, fluffy and elderly.

“It was reported the cat was inside a white cat carrier inside the bin so it looks like someone has deliberately placed the cat there so they couldn’t get out. This would have caused the cat great distress."

Anyone with any information on this incident can call the animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
