Texas Veterinarian Fired after Killing Cat and Bragging about it on Facebook

Cat killer

We are sure by now, you or a member of your family have heard about the Texas vet who got fired after she killed a cat and bragged about it on Facebook.  Dr. Kristen Lindsey, DVM, was fired from Washington Animal Clinic after she posted a horrifying picture of her holding a dead cat with a bow in the head.  Along with the picture she posted was a disturbing message saying, “My first bow kill, lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it’s head! Vet of the year award … Gladly accepted.”  Dr. Lindsey’s Facebook post sparked both local and national outrage.  Local animal lovers flooded Washington County Animal Control, Washington Animal Clinic (where Lindsey used to work) and Brenham Police Department with calls about the vet’s viral yet very disturbing post.

According to Brenham Police Department, the feline was actually killed by Lindsey with a bow and arrow in Austin County.  In fact, the Austin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case.  On Friday morning, deputies were sent to the crime scene by Sheriff Jack Brandes.  He said, “This kind of stuff shouldn’t happen in our society.  It’s a very sad thing. Hopefully we will get to the bottom of it and get the truth, 100% truth, and get it to the DA and put it in his hands if it needs to go any further.”

After receiving more than 500 calls on Friday morning, Lindsey’s employer fired her and her name was also covered with a tape on the clinics sign.  The clinic expressed their disapproval for her acts.  Dr. Bruce Buenger of Washington Animal Clinic said. “Our goal now is to go on and try to fix our black eye and hope that people are reasonable and understand that those actions don’t anyway portray what we’re for here at Washington Animal Clinic.  We put our heart and soul into this place.”

On Friday afternoon some people raised their concerns that the feline wasn’t a stray.  The cat was believed by some people to be “Tiger”, a neutered pet cat who has been missing.  Tiger looks very similar to the cat who was killed by Lindsey.  A campaign page dedicated to the cat was launched on Facebook.  It’s basically asking for justice for the poor feline who was killed violently by Lindsey.  There is also an ongoing campaign to get Lindsey’s vet license revoked.  You can check out the campaign’s Facebook page by clicking the link https://www.facebook.com/JusticeforTiger/timeline.
