Veterinarian Kristen Lindsey Fired from Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, TX After Bragging About Killing Cat with Bow & Arrow On Facebook



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.

      1.4 Million cats are killed by veterinarians every year. Why the outrage about this one?
      SM: Really dude, do you really need an answer? Or are you just being a troll?

      And no one cares that the owner allowed the cat to roam freely onto other’s property? The owner did not collar this cat. The owner uploaded a video where she was driving a Gator with the cat on the hood where she clearly states “We normally go much faster” . This owner was equally responsible.
      SM: Dude, you dont shoot a cat in the head with an arrow and brag about it. That is just friggin sick. And to defend it makes you kinda sick as well.

      There are ways and methods to deal with these types of issues, this isn’t it.

      The idiocy of this situation wasn’t necessarily that she killed a cat. Unfortunately, lots of people kill cats.

      What makes this situation the ultimate in sheer stupidity was that she is a VETERINARIAN, she BRAGGED ABOUT WHAT SHE DID, and she had an employer who could easily have been PO’d about the whole thing.

      Do you REALLY want someone that STUPID treating your pets? I don’t.

      Something is missing in this article.

      Brenham is the County seat of Washington County. The cat must have been killed in Austin County that lies immediately South of Washington County. Otherwise the Sheriff of Austin county would have no jurisdiction. The county seat of Austin County is Bellville.

      Lots of people kill cats? That is a crime. Posting it on face book is an admission of guilt. Worse than losing her job, she could go to jail. Story doesn’t make sense. I thought for sure her Facebook must have been hacked but it probably would have come out by now,
      SM: No her FB was not hacked, she all but admitted she wrote it.

      Her brain was most likely hacked.

      Pet control is obviously an issue and many individuals are irresponsible in how they deal with pets, but to kill a cat with a bow and arrow and them brag about it borders on mentally unbalanced and a sociopath.

      very sick person indeed, if that was my cat that she shot….i think you know the answer.

    7. Hhj on April 20th, 2015 2:23 am

      Disgusting human, let alone a vet. You are repulsive and cruel. You are not human. Never go near an animal again. You re truly repulsive and I hope you are punished…. Very harshly

      ‘house cats’ are carnivorous predators that have been domesticated by humans. I find it ironic to hear humans say that they have ‘fixed’ their cat. That implies the cat was ‘broken’, before they subjugated it and mutilated its reproductive organs. The only justifiable reason for rendering cats sterile is the belief there are already too many cats. If returned to the wild, ‘house cats’ will quickly revert to their natural state as predators or they will die from starvation and/or they will fall prey to another predator. I have witnessed a ‘house cat’ stalking a sparrow and in the next instant an eagle swooped down and carried it away. I have seen a large owl pursuing my neighbors pet dog at dusk. The dog escaped because the owl broke off the pursuit when it saw we humans.

      If you believe the eagle killed the cat more humanely and less painfully than the archer who shot the cat through the head, then you are living in a fantasy of your own making. The eagle probably started eating the cat before it was dead and the eagle or the owl doesn’t care if their prey is someone’s

      Just because the archer shot and killed a cat does not automatically result in a crime being committed. Texas law makes a provision for killing a cat, even someone’s pet cat, under certain conditions.

      TEX PE. CODE ANN. § 42.092 : Texas Statutes – Section 42.092: CRUELTY TO NONLIVESTOCK ANIMALS

      (b) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly:
      (1) tortures an animal or in a cruel manner kills or causes serious bodily injury to an animal;
      (2) without the owner’s effective consent, kills, administers poison to, or causes serious bodily injury to an animal;
      (6) without the owner’s effective consent, causes bodily injury to an animal.

      (d) It is a defense to prosecution under this section that:
      (1) the actor had a reasonable fear of bodily injury to the actor or to another person by a dangerous wild animal as defined by Section 822.101, Health and Safety Code; or
      (2) the actor was engaged in bona fide experimentation for scientific research.

      (e) It is a defense to prosecution under Subsection (b) (2) or (6) that:
      (1) the animal was discovered on the person’s property in the act of or after injuring or killing the person’s livestock animals or damaging the person’s crops and that the person killed or injured the animal at the time of this discovery; or
      (2) the person killed or injured the animal within the scope of the person’s employment as a public servant or in furtherance of activities or operations associated with electricity transmission or distribution, electricity generation or operations associated with the generation of electricity, or natural gas delivery.

      (f) It is an exception to the application of this section that the conduct engaged in by the actor is a generally accepted and otherwise lawful:
      (1) form of conduct occurring solely for the purpose of or in support of:
      (A) fishing, hunting, or TRAPPING or
      (B) wildlife management, wildlife or DEPREDATION CONTROL or shooting preserve practices as regulated by state and federal law; or




      Sec. 71.001. DEFINITIONS. In this subtitle:

      (10) “Depredation” means the loss of or damage to agricultural crops, livestock, poultry, wildlife, or personal property.
      (5) “Livestock animal” means:
      (A) cattle, sheep, swine, goats, ratites, or poultry commonly raised for human consumption;
      (B) a horse, pony, mule, donkey, or hinny;
      (C) native or nonnative hoofstock raised under agriculture practices; or
      (D) native or nonnative fowl commonly raised under agricultural practices.


      Please see section e, subsection 1. Please do a little work of your own and look up the Texas states legal definition of ‘depredation’.

      There are some folks who claim they can say for a mathematical certainty that the dead cat in the grainy low resolution photo is identical to the Gator riding cat in the video, known as Tiger. If you compare the photo of the female in the dead cat photo with the more recent photo of Kristen Lindsey, who is 31 years old today, then it is highly unlikely that dead cat is Tiger or that the dead cat was killed in Texas less than a month ago, unless Tiger and/or KL are both capable of traveling in space and time.

      KL was born 2-29-1984. She graduated from the University of Wyoming in 2006, but did not complete vet school at Colorado State University until 2012. She went to work as a vet in Texas that same year. Based on the apparent age difference between KL in the photo below I will make an educated guess that KL killed that cat some place other than Texas BEFORE she completed her undergraduate work in 2006.
