Thank Judge Crump for Upholding the Suspension of Kristen Lindsey's Vet License

Veterinarian Kristen Lindsey shot a cat through the head with a bow and arrow in April 2015, and then bragged about it on Facebook. Since then the Animal Legal Defense Fund has fought to hold Lindsey accountable at every turn, urging the District Attorney to charge Lindsey with animal cruelty, then testifying before the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners in support of revoking Lindsey’s license to practice veterinary medicine. 

In October 2016 the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners, following a Proposed Decision by Administrative Judges of the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings, imposed only a temporary suspension of Lindsey’s license forbidding her from practicing veterinary medicine for one year, followed by a four-year suspension during which she can practice under supervision and must complete continuing education in animal welfare. This slap on the wrist pales in comparison to the cruelty that Lindsey committed against a defenseless cat named Tiger, who belonged to a neighbor. Still, Lindsey fought the decision, sending the case before another judge. 

On July 21, 2017, Judge Karin Crump upheld the temporary suspension of Kristen Lindsey’s veterinary license. Sign your name to our letter thanking Judge Crump for acknowledging the mountain of evidence showing that Lindsey’s behavior is incompatible with the trust placed in veterinarians.
