We Ask That You Revoke The License of Kristen Lindsey, DVM
Texas veterinarian Kristen Lindsey recently posted a photo of a cat she shot through the head with an arrow to her facebook page with the caption, "My first bow kill. Lol. The only good feral tomcat is a tomcat with arrow through an it's head . Vet of the Year award ... gladly accepted. "
Lindsey had the means to either trap and neuter or humanely euthanize this cat if she believed it was a nuisance. Instead, she chose to use it for target practice and brag about it on Facebook.
The Houston Chronicle reports a representative with True Blue Animal Rescue in Brenham, Texas, says the cat was in fact, not feral, but a foster cat, owned by the group.
Dr. Kristen Lindsey, DVM, with the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, Tex., Has Been fired, her Facebook and Twitter pages are down, and police are Investigating.
Her complete disregard for the pet's suffering warrants her expulsion from the practice of veterinary medicine. She should never be permitted to practice in Texas again, or in any other state, for that matter.
We are asking that the Texas State Veterinary Examining Board permanently revoke Kristen Lindsey's license.

Dr. Kristen Lindsey, DVM, has shown a complete lack of compassion and ethics when she posted, to her personal Facebook page, a photo of a feral cat she had shot through the head with an arrow.
Her captions brags, "My first bow kill. Lol. The only good feral tomcat is a tomcat with arrow through an it's head . Vet of the Year award ... gladly accepted. "
It's sickening to see someone in a profession dedicated to serving animal acting in such a callous and insensitive manner.
Her complete disregard for this animal's suffering and her reckless behavior warrants removing her from the practice of veterinary medicine.
