Would You Support a Vet Who Shot a Cat in the Head With an Arrow? (Video)

Vet with Tomcat she killed

*Call me overly sensitive, but in answer to the headline question, I’d have to give a rousing Hell no!” The above photo was posted by veterinarian Kristen Lindsey (who is seen holding the allegedly feral tomcat she shot in the head with an arrow) in April 2015. To further my solidify position, although vets face the death of animals all the time, evening having to euthanize them when requested or necessary, Lindsey’s actions have nothing to do with that. This photo reminds me of the dentist who killed the lion. Boldly and proudly.

So when she was in court on the second day of a hearing which would determine if she would lose her veterinary license or not, she had the nerve to tear up.

But don’t get it twisted. She wasn’t crying because she felt bad about what she had done; nor the fact that she could very well lose the right to be a pet doctor.

Nah, it was another something that touched Lindsey in the place that houses the heart in the rest of us.

Lindsey got all emotional because a former co-worker was testifying to how much customers at a Brenham clinic still loved her.

Aww…she was touched.

According to KAGS-TV, Lindsey works at the Washington Animal Clinic and and at the hearing with the Texas Board of Veterinanry Medical Examiners on Tuesday, a woman named Karen Chapman — who worked with her at the clinic revealed Lindsey had spoken to a doctor at the clinic about a feral cat she was having trouble with. Chapman says the doctor advised Lindsey to “Take care of it.”

I highly doubt that meant: Shoot it in the head with an arrow.

Nevertheless, that’s what the woman did.

Chapman also added that people in the area often shoot feral cats because they are hard to trap and immunize.

It was Chapman’s comments, that eventually included how “loved” the vet in the hot seat was, by her “customers,” that had tears welling up in the woman’s eyes.

I’ll bet they’d feel differently if she shot THEIR animals in the head with an arrow.

And not all vets are feeling the love for Lindsey. Not to mention their disagreement with how these cats are treated.

Bill Folger works at Memorial Cat Hospital in Houston. He said that feral cats should be trapped and that he was “shocked, bewildered that a colleague could kill a cat like this.” He also said that based on the position of the legs of the cat in the photo, it may have still been alive when the photo was taken.

In the video (shown below) Lindsey attemps to defend her actions saying she did not believe the cat belonged to anyone. What baffles MY mind though, is being a vet — something many children grow up wanting to be based on their pure love of animals — why would you do such a heartless thing to ANY animal, whether it belongs to someone or not?


I won’t even share the thoughts going through my head right now, as to how the “veterinarian” should be punished. But I will ask you this, in the event the “jury” gets stuck on how they handle this: Can you give them some ideas?

  1. If you truly care about the well-being of animals then destroying free-roaming cats is the most humane thing to do of all options available (even for the cats themselves).

    Destroy any one invasive-species vermin cat = save the lives of thousands of valuable native animals. That’s the TRUE suffering-animal equation. Saving NATIVE wildlife from being tortured to death by being disemboweled-alive or skinned-alive and left to suffer to death for cats’ discarded play-toys, or their offspring of valuable native wildlife left to starve to death after the parents are killed or after cats have destroyed all of their ONLY food-sources. And all done to NATIVE animals that actually belong here by just ONE invasive-species vermin cat.

    It appears that this admirable veterinarian understood this. While all the other scum-of-the-earth veterinarians gleefully rub their hands together thinking about their bank-accounts — just waiting for some criminally-irresponsible cat-licking moron to bring in the next almost-dead road-kill cat or loser in a TNR territorial battle from yet another cat that they let roam free — just so they can line their pockets with cash from even more almost-dead and suffering cats.

    Would you like me to tell you in grisly detail about the thousands of poor suffering animals on my lands, their screeches drawing my attention every day, my having to drive-off a cat that just attacked it, and then stomping that poor animal to death with my own boot to hush its torment caused by YOUR cats? This was a daily occurrence for nearly 2 decades. My driveways used to be lined with the senseless writhing and screeching carnage of YOUR cats’ play-toys every morning. Perhaps you need to feel and hear the sound of a small animal’s skull pop beneath your own foot for 2 decades, every day, until you “get it”.

    If you want to end the slow torturous deaths of thousands of animals, you must begin with destroying any one free-roaming cat, NO MATTER HOW YOU HAVE-TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

    I saved countless THOUSANDS of animals from suffering to death, and the guaranteed continuation of thousands of beneficial and admirable animal species to live healthy and full lives, animals upon which our very own lives depend. (Some native predators that I even hand-raised from certain demise. The few remaining native predators on my lands that hadn’t already been starved to death by an infestation of cats.) All that senseless suffering of animals stopped permanently by simply shooting and burying every last one of HUNDREDS of these vermin cats roaming free — collared or not. Because collared-strays are the very source of every last feral cat. Not ONE of the collared cats in my area was sterilized. I checked before throwing each one into its well-deserved hole in the ground.

    It’s called “being a responsible steward of the land”. Time for all of you fools to finally grow-up into a responsible adults with spines and real hearts and get away from your smarmy and ineffectual bambi-cartoon curricula and pavement-brained ignorance.

  2. The vet who killed the poor cat is disgusting He did nothing wrong except probably want some food! An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth seems appropriate I agree w someone who said it was like that idiot dentist who killed Cecil the lion ☹️☹️☹️

  3. I first became aware of this story on FB, so disturbing…if you became a Vet to help animals how could you do this? And then after reading this story…and hearing about what other Vet mentioned that possibly cat still alive in picture because of posture of legs makes it even more horrible! She definitely doesn’t deserve to have her license…irresponsible pet owners have made feral cats…not these poor babies fault!
