Animal Advocates Call For Action Against Vet Who Allegedly Killed Cat With Bow And Arrow

Emilio Cogliani

Texas veterinarian Kristen Lindsey quickly lost her job after posting a photo of herself holding a cat that appears to have been shot with an arrow. The picture caused massive public outcry last week, but authorities are still looking into the incident.

“Right now this case is under investigation,” Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes told The Huffington Post on Monday afternoon. “That takes a little time.”

Animal advocates are now calling for action against the vet, who for the past two years worked at the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham.

The caption on the woman’s Facebook post, which has since been taken down, read: “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.”

It’s thought the cat was a 6-year-old tabby named Tiger, who belonged to a neighbor and went missing Wednesday.
