Veterinarian Who Killed Neighborhood Cat With Bow & Arrow — And Posted Photo On Facebook — Only Gets 1-Year Suspension!

This seems like a particularly lenient punishment.

A veterinarian named Kristen Lindsey will be out of work for the next year after being suspended for killing a neighborhood cat… and then bragging about it on social media!

The Brenham, Texas vet killed Tiger the Cat with a bow and arrow when he wandered into her garden on April 15, 2015 — but it was her Facebook photo showing off her kill that really got her in trouble.

That’s because in addition to displaying the 6-year-old pet’s dead body with the arrow still in his head, Kristen actually accompanied the disgusting image with an even worse caption, writing:

“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.”

Ugh! Why did she even want to be a vet in the first place?!

And not only did she clearly show no remorse… but Tiger wasn’t even a stray cat — he reportedly belonged to an elderly couple from town.

Kristen was fired from her animal clinic almost immediately after the photo surfaced, but she wasn’t officially disciplined for nearly a year and a half!

Thankfully, the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners banned Kristen from practicing veterinary medicine for a year on Tuesday after a grand jury lacked enough evidence to convict her of animal abuse since she deleted her Facebook account before police were alerted to the case.

With that said, animal rights activists at the Animal Legal Defense Fund are disappointed with the ruling, saying:

“Allowing Ms. Lindsey to continue to practice veterinary medicine in the future puts animals in the community at great risk, and taints the good name of the trusted veterinary profession.”

We’re just glad Kristen won’t have the opportunity to harm any other animals in the near future.

Especially since it’s not like she’s gonna pass any background tests from now on…

Rest in peace, Tiger.
