A woman was arrested on charges of animal cruelty after allegedly killing more than 100 cats because she had no money to feed them, police in Japan said.

Muroran Police said that they have arrested 72-year-old Hideyo Okada, after she admitted to killing cats because she had no money to feed them all as they were giving birth to more kittens all the time.

Police launched an investigation after receiving information that the woman drowned one of her cats.

Okada put the kitten in a bucket full of water, put a lid over it and press down with a stone so that the animal could not get out.

It was left in the bucket for two days. Okada was also charged with violating the Waste Management Act, for dumping the dead cats in the streets.

Okada still had several cats at the time of her arrest.
