Kristen Lindsey License Suspended, Not Revoked

In April 2015, Texas veterinarian Kristen Lindsey killed a cat named Tiger by shooting an arrow through his head. Lindsey then posted a picture of herself on Facebook holding Tiger by the arrow and bragging about the kill. The incident caused huge public outcry, and called into question whether Lindsey should be allowed to keep her veterinary license. Alley Cat Allies has been following the case from the beginning and supports permanent revocation of Lindsey’s license.

On October 18, 2016, the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners decided to suspend Lindsey’s veterinary license for five years, with only one year of downtime. After one year, Lindsey would be allowed to practice veterinary medicine again under probation for another four years. Alley Cat Allies is very disappointed in this decision. We strongly believe that Lindsey broke the public trust placed in veterinarians and should never practice medicine again.
