Vet Who Bragged About Killing Cat Fights For Her License

The Facebook photo of a cat suffering an arrow wound from vet Kristen Lindsey was prominent in yesterday's hearing.

The veterinarian who boasted that her “first bow kill” was a cat has wrapped up two days of fighting to keep her veterinary license.

Dr. Kristen Lindsey voiced her appeal to the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners for the second day in an Austin court yesterday, with the veterinary board making their case thatLindsey is guilty of animal cruelty for delivering a mortal arrow wound to a cat last year, according to KVUE News.

The incriminating photo that Lindsey posted to Facebook in April 2015, where the vet bragged about killing a feral cat, played a large part in the hearing. After posting this photo, Lindsey was fired from the clinic where she worked; six months later the Texas board voted to revoke her license.

The photo shows Lindsey holding up the cat, who still had an arrow through him and who might still have been alive when the picture was taken.

Dr. William Folger, a veterinarian arguing for the board, said the picture shows the cat was tense with flexed muscles, indicating he still exerted control over his body. Lindsey took the stand to counter this, but a former coworker agreed with the vet’s analysis.

Vet tech Karen Champion told the administrative judge overseeing the case that at the time of the Facebook post she overheard Lindsey talking to her boss and landlord who told her to “take care of the cat,” KVUE reports.

“What I understood him to mean was for Kristen to shoot the cat,” Chapman said on the witness stand, according to the news outlet. “Is really what he meant, because people do that all the time in Washington County.”

Another aspect of the case is whether the killed cat was a feral tomcat, as Lindsey assumed, or a neutered pet cat named Tiger. The cat’s owner, Carole Johnson, stood before the administrative judge to offer photographic proof.

“It was shocking to hear testimony confirming that Tiger was still alive in the picture that Kristen Lindsey posted on Facebook,” Misty Christo, an attorney with Alley Cat Allies, said in a press release. “The testimony demonstrated in terrible detail how much Tiger suffered from her cruelty.”

“Kristen Lindsey betrayed the trust that we place in veterinarians to care for animals,” Christo continued. “The information from this hearing emphatically reaffirmed that her veterinary license should be revoked forever. She should never care for an animal again.”

Written closing arguments will be presented by June 1. The decision on whether Lindsey will keep her license will be made at some point after that.

    • I think her license should be revoked and she should go to prison. At the very least. If it’s true that the landlord and her boss told her to do it, they should also go to prison and the clinic she works at should be closed. I sure wouldn’t let anybody that works their treat my pets.

  • She should never be allowed to care for animals again. She has clearly shown her disregard for their life. It should not make a difference whether this cat was feral or not. It was a horrible act upon a living creature and probably suffered horribly. She needs to go to jail for a long time. She needs to be held accountable and made an example of. This is not ok and you will be punished for cruelty to animals

    • While I believe what she did is bizarre and unbecoming of a vet, some of you on here seem to be out of touch with reality. Feral cats are a menace. In fact in alot of areas they are solely responsible for massive declines in native wildlife. I think alot of you unpset because she “killed” something and not because it was tooncesthe neighbors fake cat .

      • Feral cats are a problem, and it needs to be taken care of. However, she’s not part of a feral cat program or anything. There are ways to handle feral cat populations, from neutering and release to humanely putting them down. Putting an arrow through one cat’s head, holding it still alive for the picture, and bragging about it is not helping anyone.

      • It makes no difference whether feral or not. A vet may euthanise an animal to release it from unnecessary suffering. Killing a completely healthy animal without (legal) compulsion is against veterinary ethics. (e.g. dog bites child etc) If an animal must be killed it is the duty of the vet to do it humanely- that means avoiding unnecessary distress or suffering. What happened here is animal cruelty. This person has lost her right to pursue this profession.

      • It doesn’t matter one bit if the cat is feral or not. This was an act of SEVERE cruelty. There are many ways to catch a feral cat. There is nothing she could spew from her mouth that would undo her horrible action. The oath she took says “First, do no harm”. She needs to be held accountable for her actions.

        Laura April 29, 2016 9:56 pm Reply
      • There are studies that disprove this nonsense that feral cats are responsible for the decline in wildlife. A cat attempting to capture a wild (healthy) bird only actually comes away with one in about 50 times. This may be surprising, but many millions of birds die naturally every year, mainly through starvation, disease, or other forms of predation. Baby rabbits, ill birds, and rodents are the majority of cat’s prey. The same people that tout these bogus statistics don’t have a problem when a dog or wild canine kill a cat, though. That’s just “dogs being dogs”…..If one dislikes cats, just leave them the hell alone.

If a person who is supposed to be a comforter and healer of Cats does act in that manner, then it tells me she has no remorse as she certainly has not shown any. She should never ever be allowed to own any type of animal for the rest of her life. I certainly would never let her touch an animal of mine or for that matter get near any of my family. She definitely has no compassion for animals. There is definitely something missing in her mental makeup.

        Even in a town where the culture is to “take care” of feral cats it’s amazing that a veterinarian sworn to “to use [their] scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare, the prevention and relief of animal suffering” thinks killing an animal is a better solution than TNR. Especially since the oath was revised 5 years ago to include the words “and welfare” and “the prevention”

How can you deliberately harm something you get a license to protect and help and keep that license ? I’m well aware it’s not a person but it’s still very very wrong. Honestly even to have a problem with the wildcat one could understand maybe why she felt she had to do that if it was killing chickens or something that were pets of hers but to just hang in there and brag about it is ridiculous

  • To further Sharon’s analogy, if she was a physician who was told to “get rid of that kid” by an authority figure, would she assume he meant for her to kill the child? Of course not! But it applies to an animal when you’re a vet?

    That mindset is what has everyone so riled up. Animal or human, that is NOT a logical or sane conclusion, let alone an acceptable one that a person acts on without misgivings and sober second thought. And then to BOAST about it on social media.

    I’m beginning to wonder how she made it through vet school with those critical thinking skills. Makes me also question the validity of the vet school itself.

She looks in the pic like she truly enjoyed taking this animals life in such a horrific way. Im surprised she didn’t have it stuffed as a souvenir. The people of this town should probably investigate other missing animals. Makes you wonder what kind of child she was. When people abuse animals (and yes this was abuse) it generally starts in childhood. Maybe she got into this profession for this reason. Gives her free access to animals! I pray they revoke her license forever.

Reverse this scenario: doctors payed to save people…and to kill our babies. Yet…people are still somehow okay with that.

This being…this lower life form should be afforded no more mercy than she has shown to that beautiful cat. He was not just a cat…not just an animal…he was someone’s companion. Someone loved him, and he loved them back..and she stole that from them, and from him. She should be shown no more mercy than a person who willfully and knowingly stepped outside and shot a person through their face. The impact is the same. That beautiful creature was loved and he mattered. She had absolutely no more right to take his life than she had to take the life of a human being. She deserves no pity, no mercy and no lenience.

  • This is a betrayal of her oath to help animals and the veterinarian board has a duty to the unsuspecting public to relieve her of her license. She is no different than any other pet abuser.Its really much worse if that’s possible I’ll bet most other doctors wouldn’t want her in their profession either. Disgusting behavior. Put her in jail as well. She’s a cruel criminal.

  • Little Miss Lindsay, you are everything wrong with this society. Animal cruelty is a judgement on our nation, it’s wrong, wrong, wrong, and to sit up there in front of this board and lie and squirm your way out of this horrible killing is despicable, if you don’t know your actions were wrong, then back to square one, you missed something in your up bringing and your mother is just is psycho!

  • I hope she loses her license and can’t get a job anywhere doing anything. I hope she loses everything and ends up homeless!

  • This vet does not deserve to keep or get her license back!!! And no one should bring their pet to her for care. She is suppose to care for animals who knows how many that was in her care she may have killed. She is the lowest of lows.

  • She should be denied the ability to function as a veterinarian anywhere in the world. Also she should have to volunteer in an animal shelter cleaning cages and runs without the ability to treat animals. If this was indeed a feral cat, why would she not use the TNR system? As a real veterinarian she would certainly know about this program. If the feral could not be released where it was captured, maybe it could be relocated to become part of another feral colony. As to whether or not it was Tiger – why was Tiger outside? I am not defending the killer, just asking. Gandhi is credited with saying “You can judge a nation by the way it treats the animals” or something very similar. This woman is a disgrace to the profession (administer care), women (administer compassion), and the human race (the whole should be greater than the sum of its parts).

  • I agree with what everyone else has said. I would like to double everything and then some. I’m sure that God will see that she gets just what she deserves.

  • Let her experience what the cat experienced. If she’s still alive after that and truly understands what she did, then reconsider.

  • Wasn’t the cat wearing a collar ? To prove it’s a pet but again if she was told to “take care of the cat ” She could’ve picked him up and find out if he belonged to anyone. I’m glad she got fired ,her license should be revoked forever,never care for animals again. She should at least be reminded for the rest of her life of what she’s done. Haunt her.

  • This has to be one of the cruelest acts ever and from a vet?! Did your mommy not give u the pink bike on your 9th bday so the anger you’ve held onto.all these years comes out by killing a neighbors cat?! You need to pay, eye for an eye!

  • She never was a vet,the C_ _ _ should go to prison. A true vet wouldnt ever harm an animal.

  • I don’t understand how this is any different that shooting a person with an arrow. If she had she would have to pay. I can’t believe she is not being punished more. She should NEVER have a license to practice ever again! I wouldn’t trust her with an animal. She is cruel and feels no remorse for her actions. She took a life and bragged about it. I could go on and on. She is disgusting!

  • All you guys hating on her, just because she was a loser doesn’t mean that you have to be. Sure, I would happily punch her, hard, but killing her is a bit much. What she needs is to be educated to see that every animal is a marvelous being that feels pain and loves just as much as any human. Two wrongs do not make a right, even in the case of this sadist.

  • Kristen Lindsey should never have her licence to practise again.(“practise” is the verb, “practice” is the noun. Go back to school. “Licence” is Canadian). I doubt that anyone would want her to tend to their pets. If she has the mind to kill an animal, she should give up her licence. She’s obviously unfit to be a vet.

    • First off, I agree that she’s unfit to be a vet. However, I wanted to point out schools (or at least the few I’ve been) often don’t focus on definitions, despite their importance. Still, the bigger issue is you telling people to go back to school. Not because you’re wrong, that just makes you seem rude. The last time I checked, that strategy just works with people who either agree with you or overlook that.

  • I think she should lose her license for not just killing an animal; I think she should lose it for bragging about it and not finding out if it was feral or not.
