A vet in Texas has been banned from working for a year after a photo of her posing with a dead cat she killed with a bow and arrow emerged last year.

Kristen Lindsey posted the controversial photo on social media in 2015.

She said she thought it was a feral or wild cat but it's believed the feline was actually a family's pet named Tiger.

After the post was put up, animal lovers took to the streets to protest.

The vet was eventually fired from the animal clinic where she worked.
