Kristen Lindsey won’t face criminal charges!

This is the latest news on Kristen Lindsey, the Texas veterinarian who so infamously and allegedly shot a neighbor’s cat with a bow and arrow (link to full history).

“The Austin County District Attorney’s office appreciates the hard work done by the Sheriff’s Office and the diligent service of the members of the Grand Jury and their careful review of the evidence. No further criminal action will be taken in this matter.”

WBTX News reports that she won’t face charges. This is a big shock and disappointment to hundreds of thousands of concerned and interested people across America most of them cat lovers and caretakers.

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

The Austin Grand Jury, at which there was a protest outside to try and enforce justice,  returned a “No Bill”.

A press release from the Austin County DA’s office states:

“The investigation of Kristen Lindsey for charges of Animal Cruelty was presented to the Austin County Grand Jury on June 24, 2015. The Grand Jury returned a “No Bill” in this case. A finding of “No Bill” indicates the Grand Jury examined all the evidence and determined there was insufficient proof to charge Kristen Lindsey with a crime.

The Brenham Police Department initially referred the case to the Austin County Sheriff’s Office based upon one unsworn hearsay report that Lindsey may have acted to protect her pets from a potentially rabid stray cat in Austin County. After a thorough investigation, Sheriff’s Office investigators were unable to confirm where or when the incident took place. Without this information, officers lacked probable cause to obtain a search warrant for any Austin County properties in this matter.”

They failed for find ‘usable evidence’. I find that difficult to believe after she admitted killing the cat and advertised it all over social media.

Kristen LindseyWas the fact that the Facebook page was deleted soon after one reason why they failed to come up with evidence? What about all the screenshots of the photo and Lindsey’s accompanying words which are now all over the internet?

The State’s legal system can’t come up with proof that the killing actually happened! It is all fiction apparently. Why haven’t the police interviewed Lindsey in detail, under oath, because she would find it hard to explain her actions and online admissions in an interview. Such an interview would provide evidence. She could have been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty. It never happened.

The photo could not tell them whether the cat had been killed inhumanely. Therefore a humane killing of a neighbor’s cat is permissible even if there is no reason for it. How can that not be a crime?

In addition, the cat has not been positively identified as Tiger, the neighbor’s cat. Is that relevant? It appears to be.

The outcome is exactly what I predicted and it is unsurprising to me but still depressingly familiar. It is timely that the news has come out at the exact time we have 500,000 petition signatures for the revocation of her license to practice veterinary medicine, which will now not happen.

  1. This is the worst miscarriage of justice I have ever seen. This POS should have had her license removed and she should never be able to practice veterinary medicine again.

    SHAME on Texas Grand Jury. Shame on Texas.. this is outrageous and leaves the door open for further animal cruelty at the hands of so called “trusted” veterinarians.

    • It’s now time for decent minded citizens to boycott any vet clinic or other business which chooses to employ Ms Lindsey. That kind of boycott will have more effect on her lifestyle, than a brief spell in prison or community service ever would. Employers need to be reminded she is bad for business.

  2. Texas has proven to us you can be a sociopath, “C average student”, snort coke, be a drunk and still be selected as President of the United States if your daddy has influence and money. Texas wants to secede from the Union? Good riddance, C-YA

  3. People=Watch over and safeguard your cats and other animal friends.
    Take pictures of them and keep the batteries charged because you never know who your neighbors really are or what they may be capable of doing.

    From what has been posted, I would say that the jury was convinced she performed an act of heroism by destroying a stray cat which may or may not have been rabid???We all know the cat was owned and loved and didn’t appear under the weather til she speared it with her mighty arrow after what looked like a gin trap injury to the poor cat’s back leg. She is not only a lousy huntress but a coward too.

    The Jury was biased.Who covered up the evidence? No-one;they just did not care about Tiger.
    Besides to their way of thinking-what’s all the fuss over one more dead cat & why is this animal suddenly so important. They did not want her to lose her profession over this cat case so they let her off the hook with a slap on the wrist and special treats to boot!

    This says a lot about our country and where our priorities lie.” In The Gutter ”
