Licensed veterinarian Kristen Lindsey has lost her job after killing a cat with a bow and arrow, then posing with the arrow stuck through the head of the dead cat in a Facebook post. (Source: KBTX.com)
The post, which has since been removed, read “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."
Lindsey has also since been removed — from the Washington Animal Clinic where she practiced for two years.
And it turns out, the cat was not feral. It’s believed he was a 6-year-old cat named Tiger who disappeared Wednesday, the same day Lindsey posted her photo.
An animal rights group is offering a $7,500 reward for evidence “leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible” for killing Tiger.
Meanwhile, the Texas website that first posted the story said they had disabled the comments section after death threats were made against Lindsey.

William and Lillian Wilson were married 73 years. Both had Alzheimer’s and lived in separate nursing homes. They both died Tuesday, within minutes of each other, their son Doug said. (Source: Kentucky.com)
Doug Wilson said he drove his 89-year-old mother to see his father, who was 93, sometimes. They last saw each other Christmas Day.
William and Lillian were high school sweethearts, Wilson said. They eloped in 1941. William joined the war effort and fought in Germany.
The couple had three sons.
Doug said he got the first call at 3:52 a.m. Tuesday -- someone from the VA nursing home telling him his dad has passed away.
Five minutes later, he got the call from the nursing home where his mother stayed.
Wilson said the nurse at the VA nursing home told him the couple’s passing was like “The Notebook,” a movie where a man and woman dealing with Alzheimer’s die together in their sleep.
