As I recently posted about on my Facebook page, a Texas veterinarian who bragged about and posted pictures of a cat she allegedly killed with a bow and arrow has been fired from her job at the veterinary clinic at which she was employed.
Now come reports that veterinarian Kristen Lindsey is under criminal investigation by the Austin County Sheriff’s Department, and may face jail time.
Lindsey, whose veterinarian father-in-law reportedly owns the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham at which she was employed, had posted a photo of a dead cat that had been impaled through his head with a caption that read: “My first bow kill lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through its head! Vet of the year award … gladly accepted (sic).”
The photo, which allegedly was taken by Lindsey’s mother-in-law, soon went viral across the Internet, after which appalled animal lovers demanded that Lindsey be arrested and jailed.
According to new emerging reports, Lindsey may now face criminal charges, and is looking at possible jail time. As for the cat being “feral,” various news report state that he was actually domesticated, and was under foster care at the time that he was killed.
“You hope it isn’t true and then you find out that it may be,” said Dr. Bruce Buenger DVM, co-owner of the animal hospital. “So then you just have to do what’s right. We researched it, did some soul-searching and this morning decided to terminate her employment with the clinic.”
If these reports are in fact true, I personally hope that this miserable excuse for a human being loses her veterinary license for life, and spends many years behind bars.
