I don't want to read 65 pages, can someone summarize? I remember her excuse was she thought it was feral, then she has inconsistencies in her testimony about thinking the cat may be rabid in order to save her license. But has she shown any remorse or apologized for this incident? And has it been confirmed that the cat was in fact a pet?

To many people it doesn't matter if the cat was feral or not, but IIRC it was confirmed that the cat was indeed a neighbor's pet. She didn't have any business killing it, and the fact that she was a vet made it even worse. She was simply showing off her skill with a bow and arrow, and bragging on the internet that she liked killing animals. She brought it all on herself with her own stupidity.

This woman lies like a rug. In a sworn affidavit last October, Lindsey stated that she shot the cat because it was rabid. However, in a deposition months later, she admitted that she didn't think the cat had rabies, but killed because she thought it was a nuisance. There are other tweaks & turns in Lindsey's story as well.

As far as her feral cat defense, it's just a smoke screen because Texas law protects feral cats just as it does pet cats. There are two possible defenses:

1) The cat was caught in the act of injuring or killing your livestock.
2) The cat was caught in the act of destroying your crops.

Neither defense applies to this case.

At the recent SOAH hearing, Kristen Lindsey lived up to her smug, arrogant image. She showed no remorse, only shedding a tear when the discussion was about her. Also, Lindsey came to court dressed for a night at the honky-tonk, and chewed gum during the proceedings.

Dr. Folger, a well known feline veterinarian expert, testified at the hearing. He said there's no doubt that the cat was a pet named Tiger. Comparing video pictures of Tiger to Lindsey's "trophy" photo, he pointed out unique markings that matched perfectly. Dr. Folger also said Tiger was still alive when the photo was taken.

The coincidences are like a one-two-punch: Tiger went missing on the very day Lindsey made her bow kill. The cat in the trophy photo is identical to Tiger.

Anyhow, this legal process is slow. Here's an article from Tiger's Justice Team explaining it:

That was what bothered me the most-that Tiger was alive and suffering while the sick B proudly held him aloft by the arrow!

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."
Totally ticks me off. I have a cat and im sure that this car did nothing wrong to her. Its stupid hicks like her that make me embarrassed to be from this state. Hope she goes to jail.

I don't like cats and I still think this lady is a total piece of crap.

I think he meant it was hard to read due to it being disturbing, not that you didn't put your information down clearly.
