A vet has been fired after shooting and killing a neighbour's cat with a bow and arrow and then posting a 'kill' picture on Facebook.

Dr Kristen Lindsey wrote: '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.'

The vet posted the message on Wednesday alongside an image of herself with the dead animal, holding it by the arrow.

Seemingly, she believed the cat was feral – which it was not but belonged to a nearby family and was called Tiger, who went missing in Brenham, Texas, a few hours earlier that day.

Dr Lindsay has been sacked from her job, campaigners are calling for tougher action and for her to face criminal charges.



She later denied she had lost her job saying: 'No. I did not lose my job. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I'm Awesome!'

However it was later confirmed that she had been let go.

A spokesman for the Texas Vetinary Association said: 'We are saddened and disturbed by the unfortunate actions of this individual, and we remind Texas residents that this conduct is not reflective of the veterinary profession or of the veterinarians who strive to embody the words of the veterinarian's oath every day.

'Upon learning of the troubling misconduct, the Brenham clinic where the veterinarian was practicing immediately condemned her actions and terminated her employment.'

The sheriff of Austin COuty Jack Brandes has said the case will be forwarded to the district attorney for review.
