Blimp, I know! I am astounded that about how many people are defending this dirt bag! It scares me.

Putting it on Facebook? I wouldn't let any of my animals within a football field of this freak!

Mistake or intent? That's what it boils down to. No need to go on a witch hunt until all the facts are known.
had there been a feral ginger prowling her property, a HUMANE person would have set up a humane trap for it and if still bent on killing it, would have euthanized in a humane and professional manner.... not like it would have cost her anything, being a vet and all...... traps can be bought for about $20 or borrowed from humane society or animal control.....

traps the kitty, and Oh, well, lookie there!! this little dude is not feral after all!! he's neutered, he has good body weight and hair coat... wonder if he is actually someone's pet??

instead she did what she did.....

I have a former stray tomcat. He used to just hang around the neighborhood and I used to leave food out for him. When he got injured by another animal, I took him in, took him to the vet, and kept him. He's an indoor cat now.

Even though it's been ten years, he still wants to go outdoors and will make a dash for the door when possible. I have always feared him getting out, not just because of cars, but because he's such a friendly cat who might walk right up to someone who will do him harm. Cats get out sometimes. I would like to think that people would do the right thing and call animal control, but seeing how people are defending this vet and see nothing wrong with what she did shows me my fear is justified.

I've have volunteered with vets for years who work or volunteer at animal shelters and found vets to be tenderhearted, animal lovers to a fault. I am skeptical of this story and the reporting.

I have 3 indoor cats. Two of them have never been outside. The third is a feral rescue. She was only 4 weeks old when we found her in our yard lost from her momma. She is now the cutest cat ever. Her personality is over the top. I shudder to think of some psycho shooting her through the head.

Perhaps in other countries (although I'd still suspect dogs), but via the CDC:

"There are usually only one or two human rabies cases each year in the United States, and the most common way for people to get rabies in the United States is through contact with a bat."

So much wrong information and total B.S. about feral cats here . . . Combine that with the mean spirited responses and this only reinforces what Ive known for years: humans are the nastiest, most treacherous and dangerous animals in the world.
spay and neuter you human

One of my two cats is sweet and loving. She was once a feral who sat on our front porch when it rained or snowed. My son took pity on her and was able to "gentle" her.

Three years later, she is a friendly, spayed, feline family member.

I really just can not believe what this vet did. It makes me sick.
