The response to a request for the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to revoke the license of Kristen Lindsey, DVM, whose gruesome photo of Lindsey holding a fatally injured cat named Tiger went viral, has been published and the letter is reproduced below:
We can see that this is a standard letter. This is what we would expect. The timetable is very flexible but I’d expect that in this instance it will be on the longer end of the scale because after three years people will definitely have forgotten this prominent internet story.
