TX Veterinarian Shoots Cat with Arrow then Posts & Brags about it on Facebook ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Meet 31 y/o Kristen Lindsey, a Wyoming native who resides in Brenham, Texas.  She's pictured below with her proud mom Becky...

Kristen was ("was") a veterinarian at the Brenham Veterinary Clinic until being terminated after she boastfully posted a horrifying image (pictured below) on her Facebook page of her holding a cat that she (again a veterinarian) had killed in her own backyard by firing an arrow into its head. 

To make matters worse (if there is anything worse), Kristen's comment on the photo reads "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."  However, and happily, immediately upon learning of the post the Brenham Clinic publicly condemned her actions and terminated her employment, stating: "The clinic’s ownership and staff have expressed their deepest shock and disgust at such behavior and are regretful that the individual acted in a manner that so drastically deviated from the conduct and values the clinic has upheld in its community for years.  We hope you will stand strong with us against this type of behavior against animals. TVMA values the trust built between veterinarians and the public based on mutually shared care for animals.  We hope that we can unite to prevent actions like this from occurring in the future."

The Texas Veterinary Medical Association has also publicly condemned Kristen, 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. This individual’s actions directly violate the veterinarian’s oath taken to use his or her “scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering, the conservation of animal resources, the promotion of public health and the advancement of medical knowledge.”  We are saddened and disturbed by the unfortunate actions of this individual, and we remind Texas residents that this conduct is not reflective of the veterinary profession or of the veterinarians who strive to embody the words of the veterinarian’s oath every day."

Kristen claims that she hunted the animal down in her backyard and shot it with a bow, believing that 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 (2) weeks.  video of the six-year-old cat that Lindsey is believed to have killed riding on top of a tractor has also surfaced online and can be seen here and a timeline of events can be read here.

Public reaction on Facebook has been, as any sane person would expect, explosive.  Except of course for Kristen who, before she learned that she no longer had a job had herself commented: "And no I did not lose my job. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I'm awesome."  Can you imagine the ego on this crazy bitch?

Not withstanding either the public outcry or the evil (malum in se) act itself no arrest has yet been made.  Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes said that "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 per cent truth, and get it to the DA and put it in his hands if it needs to go any further" and, in the interim, local prosecutors are considering whether or not to file criminal charges (only in Texas... c'mon folks... this is a "no brainer").  Still, in Texas "Cruelty to Animals" (which, under penal code 42.092: “A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly tortures an animal or in a cruel manner kills or causes serious bodily injury to an animal.”) is is a mere misdemeanor, and this crazy bitch (yes, I will continue to call her a "crazy bitch", mostly because of the irony that she's a vet... if she studied and worked in any other field I probably wouldn't, but she does so f*ck her six (6) ways from Sunday).

Meanwhile, a Facebook page, called "Justice for "Tiger" The Cat Murdered By Kristen Lindsey",  which I have "Liked" and which you can view here  has more than 3,300 followers and I encourage each and every one of you to please consider adding to those ranks.   Kristen has been condemned online by a number of people on Social Media including Larry Wallace, who said he had been a veterinarian for 40 years, and who said on Facebook: "I have never in my long career heard of such an atrocious act by a member of my profession. 'This person most be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. She took an oath to protect and heal not to killing innocent life. I will be contacting my national association about this matter as she has tarnished the profession for which she has chosen."  Sheilah Christensen wrote: "She needs to be in jail for animal abuse - follow your state state statutes re animal abuse. Take her license away -- my God, what did she do to the animals in her care at your clinic."

Kristen Lindsey is a sociopathic hypocrite and I am a cat lover.  Do that math and I go with Hammurabi on this one (i.e. shoot that crazy b*tch in the head with an arrow), or, better yet, Marcellus Wallace...
