WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
Kristen Lindsey of Brenham, Texas, believed the animal was non-domestic
Said the only good feral cat was one 'with an arrow through it's head'
She then stated: 'Vet of the year award...gladly accepted'
Local rescue center has since claimed the cat called Tiger wasn't feral
Colorado State graduate has been fired from Washington Animal Clinic
Prosecutors now considering whether she should face criminal charges



A veterinarian has been fired from her clinic after she posted a horrifying image of her holding a cat she had killed by firing an arrow into its head on Facebook.

Kristen Lindsey, 31, who lives in Brenham, Texas, allegedly hunted the animal down in her backyard and shot it with a bow, believing it was feral.

But a local rescue center say the cat, believed to be called Tiger, was domesticated and had been missing for around two weeks.

Beneath the shocking image, Lindsey, a Wyoming native, wrote: '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.'

She also said in a comment, before she learned she no longer had a job: 'And no I did not lose my job. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I'm awesome.'

The Colorado State graduate lost her job at the Washington Animal Clinic after the image began circulating online and staff have since been distancing themselves from the former employee.

Staff at released a statement on Facebook on Friday saying: 'We are absolutely appalled, shocked, upset, and disgusted by the conduct.

'We have parted ways with Ms. Lindsey. We do not allow such conduct and we condemn it in the strongest possible manner,' the clinic said in the statement.'

'Please know that when informed of this we responded swiftly and appropriately and please do not impute this awful conduct to the Washington Animal Clinic or any of its personnel.'

Local prosecutors are now considering whether she should face criminal charges.

A Facebook page, called 'justice for the cat murdered by Kirsten Lindsey' has already been 'liked' by more than 7,000 people.

A video of the six-year-old cat that Lindsey is believed to have killed riding on top of a tractor has also surfaced online.


Lindsey, pictured with her mother Becky, said after the picture was uploaded that she didn't lose her job - claiming no one would fire her because she is 'awesome'. However she later learned she had been fired
Local prosecutors are now considering whether she should face criminal charges. She was also slammed online with a number of people saying she should lose her veterinarian licence

Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes says he was disturbed by the image.

He told KBTX: 'This kind of stuff shouldn't happen in our society,' Brandes said. 'It's a very sad thing.

'Hopefully we will get to the bottom of it and get the truth, 100 per cent truth, and get it to the DA and put it in his hands if it needs to go any further.'

The Texas Veterinary Medical Association also condemned her reactions, insisting her conduct does not reflect the standards of other vets.

In a statement, they said: 'The Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA) strongly condemns the actions of a veterinarian who claims to have recently shot and killed a feral cat with the use of a bow and arrow.

'The veterinarian, who worked in Brenham, Texas, and is not a TVMA member, posted a picture of herself holding the deceased cat on her personal Facebook page along with some insensitive remarks about the incident.

Good grief. Supposed to look after animals is she?

She shouldn't be allowed anywhere near treating animals ever again.

Brenham is a city in east-central Texas in Washington County, Texas, United States, with a population of 15,716

If she is in a rural area and it doesn't have a collar, that is pretty normal
Feral Cats are a big problem in some places, Victor shots foxes for the same reason.

Generally here you are talking 100 acre plus properties if people are hunting and you be fairly sure they are feral.
Does anyone know what sort of size properties are in the area? it does seem rural scratch

Tiger's owners must be devastated, I don't know how some people live with themselves

Especially as she's a vet, presumably to help animals.  I wonder what she'd look like with an arrow through her head No

@dark
Agree her attitude like any trophy hunter sucks.
that is the problem with this case is she would probably be just as happy if it was an endangered animal.

Pest control is just a fact of life
and hunting for food is the natural way of things
but Hunting for Sport is just barbaric
