Updates on the cat killer…
The high-heeled woman, a Hang Zhou resident who was seen stomping a kitten to death in a widely circulated email, has since apologised for her act.
The video, which was circulated via the internet, captured her in the horrendous act of trampling the hapless kitten to death.
The stills of the video were sent via email to a STOMP user, who sent in an email condemning her actions.
According to various reports on the Internet, the woman, Wang Jue, is a nurse who hails from Heilongjiang Province in Hang Zhou.
China Daily reports that “she was despondent over a failed marriage and allowed herself to be talked into crushing the animal to death while the cameras rolled.”
The kitten killing had taken place several years ago, and the video clip was put up online.
Subsequently, the clip was removed, but photographs of the incident were widely circulated via email.
UK’s Telegraph reports:
“…an internet surfer came across a 37-year-old woman from Hubei province with the internet identity “Gainmas”. She had registered a website in Hangzhou and – the ultimate evidence – had bought a pair of stilettoes on eBay last year.
“She was also registered with QQ, a popular Chinese message service, where she wrote of herself: “I furiously crush everything to do with you and me.”
“Before her QQ address went dead, its owner had several conversations. In one, she is coy, saying “So what?” when asked if the pictures are of her, and then, when asked again, replying: “In theory.”
“When confronted by a reporter, she became defensive, saying: “Suddenly hundreds of people are on my QQ and cursing me. What’s the problem if I crush cats? It’s a type of experience. You wouldn’t understand.” ”
Wang Yue has, however, in recent times, changed her tune to that of contriteness.
Says China Daily:
“The woman’s apology, and an earlier mea culpa from the video’s producer, a cameraman at a provincial TV station, were posted this week on the county government’s Website. The woman expressed remorse for her actions and their effects on others.
“Wang said she is divorced, depressed and having trouble figuring out what to do with her life. She said her despondence led to the cruelty against the kitten. She also said that her behavior had deeply hurt her family, especially her daughter.”
According to the same online paper, Wang and the video producer have been suspended from their jobs.
But what punishment exactly they would receive remains unclear, as China does not have clear regulations on animal cruelty.
