Applaud Firing of Vet Who Allegedly Shot Cat in Head With Arrow


Target: Dr. Bruce Buenger, Co-Owner of the Washington Animal Clinic

Goal: Praise clinic for firing veterinarian who intentionally shot a pet cat with a bow and arrow and bragged about it.

A veterinarian has been fired after shooting a cat with a bow and arrow and bragging about it on social media. Dr. Kristen Lindsey, who was formerly employed at the Washington Animal Clinic, allegedly posted a photo of herself holding a dead cat with an arrow through its head. The photo’s caption read “the only good feral cat is one with an arrow through its head! Vet of the year award gladly accepted.” The photo sparked a social media firestorm, and when word got back to her employer, she was quickly dismissed from her position.

While Dr. Lindsey claimed that the cat was feral, an animal rights group later discovered that it belonged to an elderly couple. Tiger, the 6-year-old tabby, had escaped from their home earlier that day. In this case, it is clear that the veterinarian made no effort to follow standard procedure for questionable animals, which generally involves calling a Humane Society or Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals representative to trap the animal and transport it to a shelter for evaluation.

Veterinarians dedicate their lives to the care of animals and have special training in how to properly deal with stray and feral animals. This savage mistreatment of an innocent cat is not only unacceptable for a veterinarian, but a breach of animal protection laws. Officials in the county where the animal was shot are currently investigating the killing and plan to press charges. Sign the petition below to applaud the Washington Animal Clinic’s quick dismissal of this cruel and thoughtless veterinarian.


Dear Dr. Bruce Buenger,

A veterinarian was recently dismissed from her position at the Washington Animal Clinic after posting a photo of a dead cat that she claimed to have shot. Accompanying the photo were callous remarks about the value of the cat’s life. While Dr. Lindsey claimed the cat was feral, it actually belonged to an elderly couple and had escaped their home only hours before being killed.

Veterinarians have extensive training in how to deal with stray and feral animals, and in this case, Dr. Lindsey should have contacted an animal shelter to capture and evaluate the animal. We, the undersigned, thank you for dismissing this callous veterinarian who displayed a disturbing sense of pride after killing an animal.

    Thanks for firing this monster but futher measures need to be taken like taking her veterinary license and not allowing her to get near an animal in her life. She also should be sent to jail for animal abuse and murder.

  2. I wouldn’t send thanks to this clinic. Are you forgetting that they hired her in the first place? Are you telling me that she wasn’t vetted before being hired, that they didn’t already know she was a murderer? And consider the fact that the owner is supposedly her father-in-law and that the receptionist who praised Kristen the Killer’s actions online is still working there. Firing her was just a PR move.

    How in the world did this psychopath get through veterinarian school ??? While I’m grateful to hear that she’s been fired (and rightly so), she should also have her veterinarian license taken away and then be put in prison … preferably in a cell with animals lovers !!!

  4. thank you for firing the stupid bitch for what she did to that poor cat you should have done the same to her she should not get away with it, she needs the harshest punishment possible.
