A Texas veterinarian was fired after a Facebook photo showing her with her "first bow kill" -- a local cat -- went viral.
She posted a photo on Wednesday, which shows her holding up the dead cat by an arrow protruding from its head
Lindsey apparently didn't know that the "feral tomcat" she bagged was actually Tiger, a 6-year-old orange Tabby who went missing earlier on Wednesday
Lindsey also wasn't aware that she'd be fired on Friday. After the photo went viral, she reportedly posted to Facebook, "No I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!"
"She's amazing. She’s caring,” Stoddard said. “She’s a good vet, so maybe her bad choice of posting something on Facebook was not good. But I don't think she should be judged for it."

This should be on the ATS side of the house, not BTS...
BTW - that was meant as a compliment.
So, apparently there is no Hippocratic oath for Vets..?
It's one thing to euthanize an animal, and another to put an Arrow through it.
Dumb bitch...hope she loses her license.

Nobody likes making a $500 car payment every month only to have cats play slip and slide on it all night. Nobody likes putting their trash out only to find it shredded in the front yard the next morning. The list goes on.
Let's not even mention cleaning poo off your shoe. Some people don't have animals specifically because they don't want to worry about scraping poo off their shoe... But then they have to do it anyway because people are lazy, and inconsiderate which usually does (at least around here) end badly for your pet be it a dog or a cat. People here will not hesitate to shoot your animal.
I am an animal lover but owners who let their animals roam freely drive me insane. They could not care less about their neighbors or their property and they could not care less about their animals IMO.
I don't know if that was the case here or if the vet was just target practicing, either way she deserves what she gets at this point for bragging about it. She should have known better but considered herself untouchable obviously. Even if the cat was a nuisance, this should not have been displayed as some sort of sick accomplishment. The fact that she took joy in it is telling IMO.
Even the old farmers around here who shoot cats that are a nuisance don't take joy in it. They don't pose with them and they definitely don't put it on FB.

Not exactly shooting the dick of a bee at 200 paces but a lot harder than hitting a giraffe . Wonder if she is going to share the meat with the poor . The only thing this woman did wrong is have the same advisor as Chris Christie . Kill a deer it ok because you are going to eat it . Kill a cat and the crazy cat people come out of the woodwork .
Theres you sweet little kitty at work .
