BREAKING: Cat-Killer Vet Kristen Lindsey Arrested

kristen-lindseyIt’s the news every cat lover who has followed the story of veterinarian Kristen Lindsey has wanted to hear for the last year.

The Texas vet – who shamelessly shot a cat with a bow and arrow (now all but proven to be a neighbor’s cat named Tiger) and posted a photo, bragging about it on Facebook – was arrested! She was not, however, charged with animal cruelty like we’d all hoped.

According to Harris County Texas public court records (Cause No. 2081246), Lindsey was arrested on March 21, 2016 at 1:22 in the morning for Driving While Intoxicated.

At the time, her breathalyzer test indicated a blood alcohol level of at least 0.15. That’s almost twice the legal limit of 0.08. 

DWI is a Class A Misdemeanor. Lindsey was booked and later released on bail.

She is scheduled to appear in court to face these charges on May 9, 2016.

A statement by Tiger’s Justice Team News Page, who has been closely following Lindsey since the cat-killing incident:

A drunken, cat-killing vet behind the wheel leaves no doubt about where the real threat lies. Lindsey’s alleged crime is a first offense, and therefore a misdemeanor. As we all know, a first offense is seldom the first time a crime has been committed—it’s merely the first time the offender has been caught. We can’t know how often Lindsey has endangered the public. MADD states on their website: “AN AVERAGE DRUNK DRIVER HAS DRIVEN DRUNK OVER 80 TIMES BEFORE FIRST ARREST.”

Tiger’s Justice Team makes the point that, while Kristen Lindsey’s defense team has made a case against feral cats and the supposed dangers they pose for humans, a drunk-driving, cat-killing Lindsey is far more dangerous to society than any cats. Feral cats don’t kill nearly 10,000 people per year—but drunk drivers do!

    Let’s hope that this time there will be real consequences. But with a broken legal system that has lost it’s moral compass. I fear there won’t be. Until the judges take it seriously things like this will continue to happen.
    In support of Lindsey a vet said TNR doesn’t work. It has in the area where I live. that’s because people get in trouble if they drop off their cats. All are encouraged to take to a shelter. Or else. IF caught.
    And I would bet that he and Lindsey see no problem with the cruel practice of declawing.

    Dangers that feral cats pose to humans?????? There are feral cats in my neighborhood and I dont have to worry about them attacking me and killing me when I walk out my door. If HUMANS would be more responsible maybe there wouldnt be so many feral cats. I have know so many people who want a kitten. And when that kitten starts not being “cute” no more they throw it out the door. I wouldnt say that is the fault of the cat. And spaying and neutering reduces the population too

      Regardless, this wasn’t even a feral cat so I’m not sure how that defense helped her. It was a neighbor’s cat with a loving family.

    Anything that has to do with this person turns my stomach! She is garbage! I hope her whole existence is miserable! Everything she touches, turns to poison! Let Karma do her magic and sit back and watch the show! Whoever happens to her is justice!

    The most tragic part of this is that she didn’t slam into a tree or something while she was driving drunk. What a shame.

    First of all we should make no mistake that those involved in anti-cat, crackpot “bird advocacy” are trying all angles to make killing feral cats (and any cat caught outdoors) to be legal and acceptable by any means they can. Ten years ago they tried to make hunting cats a sport here is Wisconsin, but we turned them back.
    You will notice that whenever we have a case of brutality against a cat caught outdoors, the accused abuser will get a “legal team” composed of crackpots that will argue the threats to birds, toxoplasma, rabies and the rest of this type of nonsense that has nothing to do with brutalizing innocent animals!

    She is a sociopath in every way. She puts everyone at risk. NO ONE IS SAFE around her….

    Justice? She needs to be hunted with a bow and arrow and have a long lingering death on the end of an arrow. That would be karmic justice.

    Losing her license to drive or practice medicine is totally inadequate. And I’m no animal rights activist either. BITCH.

    Put her in jail. Never let her be a Vet again. She is guilty of serious animal abuse. She showed no remorse at all, smiling with the precious tiger cat she killed.
