So fire her and slap her with a fine and some jail time or community service. She didn't kill a person.

Oh, but I thought she wasn't going to get fired because:

They just can't help themselves.

Out of curiosity, do you feel the same about dogs.

If a family dog goes onto another person's property, you feel there is no issue if the dog is shot through the head with an arrow?

How about a horse that escapes its pastor into another?

News media releases and info and important websites on Texas vet who killed cat - Greenville Cats | Examiner.com

Since a Texas veterinarian posted the photo of a cat shot with a bow and arrow, the post has gone viral and outrage in the animal advocacy community can be felt around the world. This article will post a few updates, along with website links to keep up on the latest information on this case.

The situation began when Kristen Lindsey, veterinarian for Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham, posted the photo of herself holding a dead cat with an arrow through the head to her Facebook page late Thursday evening. Her 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."
Whats up with Texas? Texas firefighters killing dogs. Texas veterinarians killing cats, and the list goes on and on.

What's up with Oregon is the better question.

I meant the vet's property. If a person does not take care of their animal and it ends up in someone's yard or home then the property owner should not be punished for disposing of it. If, however, the vet shot the cat on the property of the cat's owner then she should pay the owner of the cat for its value.

She's freaking awesome so don't fire her!

She's a veterinarian. Did she not realize that this action/post on Facebook might not go over well and could be seen as cruelty to animals? Could she not tell the difference between a pet and a stray?

Why didn't she just take the cat to work or ask around the neighborhood to see if anyone was missing a cat?

Makes you wonder if she killed any other animals in this fashion.

Oh give me a break. Was the cat a danger to her? Her family? Her pets? I'm 100% sure you would be in complete agreement if some redneck killed your pet. Complete.
