    Veterinarian under investigation for killing cat with arrow.

    This disgusted me, the photo had the caption of "vet of the year"

    I am a vet nurse and I am appalled by her... Vile excuse for a human if you ask me..

    Not sure about USA but in AUS our feral cat eridication program involves baits (poisoned) or traps and transported to welfare for either behavioural training and rehoming or euthanasia.

    Unfortunate but if people desexed their pets then feral animal populations would happen less..

    She was just so heartless, not only in shooting the cat, but in the way she posted. Unbelievable. I guess the cat may have belonged to an elderly couple, not sure why she claimed it was feral. Around here there are feral colonies, people are encouraged to trap, spay/neuter, and release. She was a vet, if she thought the cat was not neutered, why wouldn't she neuter it and release it instead of shooting it. I never would have expected this from a vet.

    Your last paragraph... EXACTLY

    Most vets I have worked with, are extremely passionate about saving your pets, feral animals and any animal in fact. That's 100% why they do what they do, they love animals..

    I have predominately worked in vets that are no kill / no euth.. Because I believe there are far more options we can explore, I am also a former failed foster carer (I say failed because I kept 2)

    I hope she loses her licence to practice... GRR

    Supposedly, the cat was a pet named Tiger. RIP sweet kitty. Justice will be served.

    Here's Tiger...

    Not sure why they are keeping her name private, she chose to brag about the killing on facebook so she does not deserve privacy. She should absolutely lose her license and face jail time.

    Vets that do not provide euthanasia? So terminally ill animals dying of cancer or other horrendous illnesses are kept alive to linger and die a slow agonizing death over days or weeks? If that is what you meant that is awful, animals can't ask for pain meds or take matters into their own hands. Surely that cannot be what you mean by "no euthanasia".

    If you follow Tulessa's link you will find this quote from one of the vet's relatives:

    A relative told us she had no comment for now and that this whole thing has been blown out of proportion.
    Really?

    Rescue group isn't claiming the cat. Cat belonged to an elderly couple who were out of town. They had a cat sitter who is a volunteer with a rescue group.
    "Contrary to earlier reports, the cat was not a foster with True Blue Animal Rescue in Brenham."

    That makes more sense, it seemed very odd that a foster cat would be allowed to wander outdoors.

    Makes ya wonder if she has killed other animals in the neighborhood before this, then again she would have likely posted photos of the victims. It was also obvious by the cat's condition that it was NOT a feral/stray.

    If the kill shot really was in the back of the head I have to wonder if the cat was very friendly and came right up to her when called. A lot of those orange male kitties are extremely friendly/trusting. Ugh.

    It's clear from the video of cat riding "Gator" that the cat was very friendly. That cat has unusual markins so I am pretty sure it's the same cat. The woman who took the video was his cat sitter.

    I added her name to the tags because she has been named in a few media outlets. Mods, I can remove if you dont think it is appropriate.

    from jjenny's link-

    KBTX says that in the comments under photo, when asked if she would be let go because of the controversy, she seemed to rather cavalier about the matter and didn’t expect to be let go because she was “awesome.”

    KBTX Coverage

    Dr Lindsey has some supporters who feel that people are weighing in who have no real understanding of the country. Obviously we cant read her FB page now, but she allegedly believed that this would not be a problem for her.

    Lindsey works for the Washington Animal Clinic in Brenham. In the comment section of her post, she wrote “no I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!”

    I am not sure what understanding of the country I am supposed to have here. Is it just fine to shoot and kill pet cats in the country with an arrow? By a vet, no less. She has to know people let their cats out. When I take my cat to the vet they ask me if I let him out (which I don't), but obviously people do. From her photo of killed cat, cat looked very clean, so how could she not figure out this was not a feral cat (not that would be o'key to shoot a feral cat).
    Just my opinion
