BELLVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas sheriff has asked for an animal cruelty charge against a veterinarian who bragged on social media about killing a cat with an arrow.

Dr. Kristen Lindsey boasted on Facebook of killing the cat. A picture showed her holding the cat's body by the arrow shaft.

Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes said Tuesday that results of his department's investigation have been submitted to District Attorney Travis Koehn. Koehn says his office "will carefully review this matter."

Operators of the clinic where Lindsey worked in Brenham, about 100 miles northwest of Houston, said they fired her after learning of the posting last week. The Facebook account has been closed.

No telephone listing for Lindsey could be found. Prosecutors wouldn't say whether she has an attorney to comment on the allegations.
