Was Tiger gin trapped by the leg before Kristen Lindsey put an arrow through his head? — 114 Comments

  1. Michael we saw that leg the first time we saw the picture and blew it up it is bloody! Think about how a cat runs and darts shoot a cat with a arrow that is not standing still? Next how did she see to shoot through all that foliage??? I believe the cat went in the bushes and was caught in a baited trap then she went behind the bush and shot it in the head! Another thing folks this cat is not dead its legs and tail muscles are still flexed! A recently killed animal would hang dropping totally!

  2. WOODY WOODY WOODY! IN HER OWN FB STATEMENT SHE SAID IT WAS HER FIRST BOW KILL!!! HER MOTHER SAID SHE WATCHED HER STALK THE CAT THAT CAME INTO THE YARD WHILE SHE WAS PRCTICING! I would never hurt a human being but I would really like to meet you face to face to understand who or what you are. Your obsession with Michael and Elisa is ridiculous and does not say much about you or your life! So why don’t you get one and stop living vicariously on their coat tails. No one is impressed!

  3. We have available cheetah cubs ready to move to their new homes contact at email (email removed because PoC does not get involved with the trading of cheetahs).

    • David, I have published your comment for the sole reason that it gives me the opportunity in this reply to criticise you in the strongest possible terms by saying that what are doing is highly immoral and for me quite disgusting. As far as I am concerned you are a complete sh*t and if I had the opportunity I’d do my best to stop you.

      • Michael I suggest that you erase this individuals email address (possibly the entire thread). The only thing you are doing by letting his posts thru are potentially filling his pockets by letting the wrong person see this. All it take is one idiot to see his email address to contact him and to support his “business”
        I understand what you were trying to do but I think maybe you should’ve edited his email address beforehand. Besides that it has nothing to do with the case at hand. Other than he’s either one of two things. 1. an individual who sells exotic animals to equally stupid people 2. someone who has a lot of time on his hands to either scam people or just doesn’t have anyone in his life and needs to make up stories in order to gain attention.

    • David why do you have chetta cubs? Are you selling them? I hope not. This is a stupid and selfish way to make chump change… on the backs of innocent animals. Please tell me differently.

  4. There are a number of us that have been saying from pretty early on that she had trapped Tiger prior to shooting him. This was a cat that had never known violence, he was a loved pet. He didn’t know to be afraid of people. The angle of the arrow suggests that he was looking at her when she shot him. He was likely looking to her for help getting out of that trap and she looked into that sweet face and shot him anyway. I would also like to point out that Tiger was not dead when this photo was taken. If he were dead, his front legs would be hanging limp at his side and they are not. He was incapacitated, but still alive. She was swinging him around by that arrow taking photos and celebrating while he was suffering and slowly dying. A veterinarian would know how badly he was suffering and apparently this was part of the thrill for her. The oath she took says she will prevent and relieve suffering. This is someone that is beyond evil and should never be allowed to work with animals again. With a little digging you can find indications of these tendencies prior to her becoming a vet. Her blog from 2011 puts killing animals at the top of her list of things she likes to do. Kristen Lindsey is a sick, vile person as are her parents. People like this should not be allowed to walk around free in our society. It’s well known that people that commit acts of cruelty against animals move on to children. The whole disgusting family should be spending time in jail, but it looks like the Austin County DA is waiting for this to die down so he can sweep it under the rug.

    • Thanks Carol for a great comment. I have read that infamous line from her blog in which she said she likes killing animals. As you say it means she is unsuited to being a vet and that the student selection procedures were inadequate.

      I am not surprised that others have speculated that she trapped Tiger before killing him. It does look like that and it is certainly possible for Lindsey to consider trapping cats in her backyard. There is a series of pages on Lindsey on PoC.

  5. Without the original picture it’s hard to tell w the grainy imagery but, in my opinion, I’d honestly have to say he’s missing part of his leg. If you look at it in proportion to his other leg there’s just no way that’s his foot under the leaf. That could very easily be a piece of the branch. Look at the rest of the coloring of the brush she’s standing in. Besides that look at Tiger, he’s a big cat. There’s just no way that could be the end of his foot there.
    I agree wholeheartedly, now that it’s pointed out, she used something to catch him before shooting him. But w/o poor Tiger’s body, at the very least an expert in this area or a miracle – this “vet” confesses to what she did, all we have are our options.
    Bottom line is, what she did was wrong & I know there’s a special place in Hell for individuals such as herself. I hope she gets what’s coming to her & those that thought it ok to take the picture, post it & support her.

  6. Keep going with this investigation. We are all behind you. Even if you keep digging for the next 30 years.
    This is a sorry substitute for a human family.

  7. Michael-I now see what remains of Tigers paw below the leaf. From their upwards his poor leg has obviously been mangled long enough to take away the flesh, possibly down to the bone. he must have struggled desperately and in terrible pain and fear trying to get out of the gin trap which held him captive until discovered and shot ! Despicable.
    Eva says-
    And she was proud of this violent act? Her mother as well?

    Atten: Mr. Seth James-I wonder if you would advocate the slaughter of a neighbors Dog.

  8. In my opinion it definitely looks like Tigers leg has been amputated. It only makes sense that she either cut it off herself before shooting an arrow into his head, or he was trapped beforehand and then shot. Either way its a horrendous act! This kind of thing really makes me hate people more and more every day!

    • Hi Victoria. Thanks for visiting and commenting. It is certainly possible that are correct. Although, the picture is not clear. But it is clear that something happened to his right hind leg.

  9. Killing Tiger the way the veterinarian killed him is illegal. Having mom take the proud picture, while dad observes, is twisted. Posting the picture of the mangled cat appears sociopathic, grinning and proudly displaying the victim is narcissistic. People who defend cruelty of this nature are dangerous. The problem is, we live among people who don’t have a conscience and it kills them that others do. Animal Abusers are all alike and will never change. People who care and fight for the abused animals will never change either!

  10. I had read in one of the many articles about the ‘vet of the year’ that she had indeed trapped Tiger in her back yard. I cannot for the life of me remember where I read it but it stuck in my mind. After studying the picture it made sense of why the leg was so bloody. Poor Tiger… The ‘vet of the year’ and her ‘mother of the year’ are both beyond contempt.

  11. Well now, is this the kinder, gentler Woody? Nahh. Different name, same brand of insanity. He obviously just doesn’t get it: a totally harmless domestic cat was brutally executed (and probably trapped beforehand) by a psycho who happens to be a veterinarian.

    Seth, Woody, Jim, Betty (AKA The Biggest Loser), no matter what name you dream up, your insistence on bombarding this site with your insane viewpoint will always give you away. Since Lindsey is being hailed by the bow-hunting fanboys online as being a “real woman” I suggest that she take her bow and her hunting skills over to India and hunt something genuinely dangerous, like a man-eating tiger. Here’s a suggestion, Seth, why don’t you go with her? You two wouldn’t last a hot second, and the poor cat would most likely get indigestion afterwards. No great loss.

  12. We know she wasn’t an expert marksman able to hit a moving cat through the skull (she said this was her first bow kill) so the obvious assumptions is something else happened before standing over him and shooting the arrow into his skull. Trapping him by the leg is definitely an explanation !

    Do not apologize for posts about this , giving up is what she hopes for. I’m embarrassed of my state of Texas for this whole ordeal.

    • Thanks for your support Kevin. That’s nice of you. I want justice. I don’t want this to fizzle out as often happens. It is time that criminal behavior against animals stopped.

      • We have to keep the media involved! That is the only way to get this D.A. to move his feet. The local media has given it some coverage but what about a larger stage? Story pitches for USA TODAY can be submitted at newstips@usatoday.com

  13. I swear, everytime I see this bitch it pisses me off!!! PLEASE someone lock her ass up!!! She is a MURDERER!!! That poor cat didn’t deserve this!!!

  14. No apologies necessary, this cruelty is happening everywhere much more than this single incident so it would be ignorant not to continue to expose it. Kudos

      • So glad to find out more about this guy. He spends his whole life commenting on cat sites. I believe he also goes by TNRResearcher.

      • No need to publish this reply, but I just wanted to thank you for your investigation into the real identity of “Woody”! This may be the poster that has been leaving troubling remarks as NatureAdvocate on The Denver Post comments section:

        Among other disturbing remarks, NatureAdvocate has been encouraging property owners to lure cats onto their property for the sole purpose of killing them:

        “But it gave me a good reason to segue into and share that link to some of the best methods to get rid of all cats — everywhere. I bet there’s a lot of people in Colorado today (and many places) that are now converting their seldom-used MP3 players into effective feral & stray cat-callers, or maybe finding out you can get (VERY nice) IR surveillance cameras for only $15 on ebait today (search: CCTV IR), and saving up all the drippings from their tins of tuna and sardines (or getting a bottle of fish-oil-fertilizer from their nearest garden department, should work okay too) to make trails along all the roadsides right to their own yards where they can get rid of every last stray cat in their neighborhoods for blocks around. It doesn’t matter how a cat gets on your own property, once it is there it is legal for you to destroy it, n’est-ce pas?”

  15. Michael,please ban this wanker Seth,he has no business even posting here,all he does is dispute anything posted about KL,several veterinarians have given their opinion and I agree that his leg is mangled,not cut off hence the blood,some are even saying he was in full rigor when she shot him but I disagree!

  16. It looks like all the blood is on the leg, none on the head. I think she shot it in the leg removed the arrow and then standing over it shot it in the head later, just to make a good (sick of course, not good) photo.

  17. Every counter argument that can be provided has a very simple answer. “So what” You can saturate all you want and what will always remain is a dead cat, dangled at the end of an arrow being held by a “child” who gloated and publicized; for public scrutiny, her “vet of the year” worthy accomplishment.

  18. That cat was NOT shot at close-range. The angle of the arrow and head suggests that the cat was shot anywhere from 20-30 yards away (60-90 ft.) as the cat was looking down intently stalking yet another valuable native animal that it could rip-apart while alive for its hourly play-toy.

      • I’m not even an archer, but I bought a 90lb. compound-bow one time because it was ridiculously priced on a close-out sale. I “played” with it for about a week. After that short of time I could put a practice-point within 1/2-inch of dead-center of target every time from 25 yards away — without any kind of sight on the bow. Shooting that cat at that distance, and even far further, by a seasoned archer would be EASY. I surmise her exclamation of pride was due to it being over 50 yards away. NO hunter brags about shooting any animal close-up. This is also probably why her parents were also so proud of her displaying her archery skills.

        • Well, Woody, that is your argument. I have proposed something different and what I have proposed is not extreme or badly thought through. It is possible but as stated I am speculating.

        • Ok so you admit you are not an archer, yet you are sure ‘from the angle and so forth’ that the cat was shot from a specific distance (ie not close range). You also state that the archer would have to be seasoned to shoot accurately at that distance to hit the head, yet Kristen professes it’s her ‘first time’, so I’d hardly call that seasoned. You are making things up.

        • WOODY WOODY WOODY! IN HER OWN FB STATEMENT SHE SAID IT WAS HER FIRST BOW KILL!!! HER MOTHER SAID SHE WATCHED HER STALK THE CAT THAT CAME INTO THE YARD WHILE SHE WAS PRACTICING! I would never hurt a human being but I would really like to meet you face to face to understand who or what you are. Your obsession with Michael and Elisa is ridiculous and does not say much about you or your life! So why don’t you get one and stop living vicariously on their coat tails. No one is impressed!

          • Jan, I’d like to meet him too! The trouble is as soon as I got close enough I’d hit him 😉 . Thanks for taking the time to try and put him straight.

    • So you’re claiming someone who admitted this was her first bow kill was able to hit a cats skull at 30~ yards? First shot, never , cat is now aware it’s being stalked and on guard. Nope , something else happened and she stood over him and shot that arrow through his skull. Angles? His head could have been cocked any way imaginable.

    • You’re an idiot woody. She’s a vet not a hunter. She couldn’t have made a shot like that from that distance.

  19. It’s not covered by blood. That is the reflected pinkish tone from its underbelly, added-in with a really bad camera that over-saturates all the colors. Are you all daft? These people who are harassing someone for committing NO crime try to think-up anything….rest deleted.

      • I see what you mean now that I looked for it. I do agree that interest has died down a lot on the case. It never seems to matter what happens involving abuse. By the time the next month rolls around the interest has faded.

          • Dont lose hope, there are still a few of us locals hanging in there. It’s true that interest ebbs and wanes but I believe it’s not just a loss of interest for all. I think most need to shut it out for a period to cop, because it’s so shocking and scary to realize someone of that position is capable of such a betrayal. I’m confident they will be there when needed

            • Yes, good point but I also believe that people don’t care enough about animals. Even when they are treated cruelly, for a while we complain and then we revert back to our self-obsessed world. We are so self-absorbed. It is rather sad.

          • I am thankful that you wrote this. I do not want to forget. I do not want others to forget. I want justice for Tiger!

        • We wont let that happen Elisa and Michael,we have along with myself responded to her attorney’s letter telling the Texas Veterinary Board and am still waiting for a reply but my gut tells me he wont reply to all the emails and there are many!

        • To the contrary. The interest is not going away. In fact, it’s even stronger now than before. #IAmTiger #TigersLaw #JusticeforTiger

          • Thanks Christina for your hopeful comment. I am pleased. We need to keep up the pressure to get some justice. I am sick and tired of people getting away with cat cruelty.

      • You can’t tell so much by this photo but I have seen many others where it is very apparent. Why is she standing IN the bushes? Not in front of the bushes but IN the bushes! Did she stalk this poor animal and kill him while he was trying to hide from her in the bushes?

  20. First, excellent write up, Michael! Excellent portrayal of looking at the situation with different scenarios. I am leaning towards a close range shot because of her statement that it was her first bow kill. The would indicate that she was an amateur and maybe inexperienced and less likely to be capable of making a headshot so accurately at long distances.

    • I completely agree with you when you say it was a close range shot. I know believe that Tiger was gin trapped and then shot. Executed. A bloody leg like that indicates some sort of trap to me.

  21. Michael_I do not even see a leg ? It looks like an open gash with no paw/leg. All I know is the arrow to the head didn’t cause Tiger’s leg to disappear.Strange but I didn’t even notice this until you pointed it out about the bloody LEG in this photo.

    I am now even more upset for the cat, for this is what it seems to be indicating.Just my opinion.

Another thing folks this cat is not dead its legs and tail muscles are still flexed! A recently killed animal would hang drooping totally limp!

        • Jan, what you have written is pretty well supported by everyone. Although you have a nice clear picture of what you believe happened.
