Veterinarian Kristen Lindsey Fired from Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, TX After Bragging About Killing Cat with Bow & Arrow On Facebook
WHAT KIND OF SICK BASTARD MUST YOU BE TO DO SUCH A THING … I DON’T CARE WHETHER THIS CAT WAS FERAL OR NOT, WHICH IT TURNED OUT TO BE NOT!!!
Kristen Lindsey, a veterinarian in Brenham, Texas, has been fired from the Washington Animal Clinic after having bragged on social media about killing a cat with a bow and arrow. Dr. Kristen Lindsey, DVM posted a picture on her Facebook page (warning, pic is graphic) of her holding an arrow that is sticking through the head of a dead cat as the post 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.” This sadistic fool went on to write in the comment section of her post, “no I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!” As it would turn out what was more awesome was the rage from those who read and saw the post as they rang the phone off the hook of the Washington Animal Clinic and crashed their web sight. And I guess Kristen Lindsey isn’t as awesome as she thinks she is, because she was fired.
It turns out that the cat she killed was not a “feral tomcat,” but instead a elderly couples missing 6 year old pet named Tiger. However, losing her job may be the least of Lindsey’s problems as Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes said he is investigating possible criminal charges.
