'My first bow kill': Texas veterinarian fired after allegedly killing cat with arrow and bragging about it on Facebook (VIDEO) BY Nicole Hensley NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Friday, April 17, 2015, 5:57 PM Updated: Friday, April 17, 2015, 11:12 PM Facebook Dr. Kristen Lindsey, a Texas veterinarian, was fired after she posed holding a dead cat by an arrow through its head. It has sparked a police investigation into possible charges. A gruesome Facebook photo showing a Texas veterinarian posing with a cat killed by an arrow through its furry skull touched off a furious backlash that got the woman canned and opened a police investigation. The image of Dr. Kristen Lindsey holding the dead orange and white cat is just “disgusting,” Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes told the Daily News. “My first bow kill,” is how Lindsey captioned her photo, complete with cat emojis, from an account that has since been deleted. “The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it’s (sic) head! Vet of the year award... gladly accepted.” Upon seeing the inhumane social media post Friday morning, Brandes sent two deputies to Lindsey’s home to investigate whether such an act of animal cruelty really happened. Intentionally killing a cat, even a stray as Lindsay suggested, is against the law nationwide. “This is not acceptable in our society. I don’t like it and I hope we don’t have to deal with this again,” Brandes added. The Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, Texas fired Lindsey within hours of the photo surfacing on social media and identified her on their Facebook page. The clinic used duct tape to delete her name from its streetfront sign. “We are absolutely appalled, shocked, upset, and disgusted by the conduct,” a spokesperson for the clinic wrote in a statement. “We condemn it in the strongest possible manner.” The clinic received more than 500 angry calls by noon, KBTX reported. Their concern was mirrored by the Texas Veterinary Medical Association, which condemned the kill. The association noted that the veterinarian in question is not affiliated with them, and would have violated their oath to protect an animal’s health and welfare. Lindsey obtained a license from the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners in 2012, and has no history of disciplinary action, state records show. The public’s outcry against the photo sparked vigilante Facebook pages calling for prosecution. The page "Justice For Tiger" already had 12,000 followers by Friday night. "Tiger" is a missing orange Tabby, but it's unclear whether the pet was the dead cat. "Tiger" went missing Wednesday, according to the Facebook page. Alley Cat Allies offered a $7,500 reward for evidence leading to the arrest and conviction of the cat killer.
