Texas vet Kristen Lindsey loses license for a year in bow and arrow cat killing


Featured Product

In Austin, Texas, Kristen Lindsey learned Tuesday afternoon her license has been suspended for a year after she used a bow and arrow to kill a cat and posted the disturbing photo on Facebook, reports KvueNews.

Lindsey was also put on probation for four years. In April 2015, she posted the photo that immediately went viral causing outrage across the country.

“My first bow kill. The only good feral cat is one with a bow through its head! Vet of the year award… gladly accepted,” Lindsey commented beneath the photo.

Days later, Kristen Lindsey was fired from her job, however she was never charged with animal cruelty. Since then, however there have been detailed discussions with the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners as to whether she should keep her license to practice veterinary medicine. Several people involved in the incident, including the person who owned the dead cat named Tiger, testified in tears at the board meetings. A co-worker of Kristen Lindsey told the board she overheard her boss and landlord telling Lindsey to “take care of the cat,” thus suggesting to Lindsey to shoot the cat.

In August, the State Office of Administrative Hearings recommended the one-year suspension and four-year probation. In addition, they requested she attend continuing education and spend 100 hours in community service. The terms were agreed upon by the Texas Board Tuesday afternoon. Rest in peace Tiger. We are sorry a human made you suffer – especially a veterinarian sworn to protect you.

    Only ONE YEAR????? I hope people who live in whatever area she decides to practice in after that time will make sure all clients know just who they are trusting the health and well-being of their pets to. There needs to be a boycott of any clinic that hires this monster.

      I agree. Excellent idea for a boycott. She is disgusting and I wouldn’t trust her for a minute alone with any pet of mine.

    Wow suspended for a full year! way to go Veterinary Board, I’m glad I don’t live in Texas and have to take my pets to anyone you certify! I’m sure also the probation and 100 hours of “community service” will be a meaningful punishment! (sarcasm) And I find it a stretch that a co-worker of Kristen Lindsey told the board she overheard her boss and landlord telling Lindsey to “take care of the cat,” did he really want her to “kill” the cat? If so, ans he is also a Vet than he is as bad as she is! This woman is disgusting and shouldn’t be allowed near someone’s pet ever!

    She should be forced to have the picture of her killing Tiger posted in every room of her office when she is allowed to practice again (something that she should never have been allowed to do except for the stupid decision made by the Texas board). Then at least people going to her will be warned of her true beliefs toward pets.
