Often when we look back at those who kill animals for fun, we find evidence that the mindset of that person and their relationship with animals formed years before the actual act of killing.
By Friday morning, Kristen was famous, and not in a good way. The photo had gone viral, Kristen was terminated from her job, and the Washington Animal Clinic and the Austin County Sheriff’s Office were being flooded with calls.
A blog was found, allegedly written by Kristen, from back in 2011 when she was still attending college at Colorado State University. In her profile from Life Writings from the Lazy Book, Kristen says
“Current interests: Living my days to the fullest, finding the meaning of happiness, killing things or trying to kill things (animals, a full glass of whiskey, hangovers, etc), my friends (both near and far), spending time with my dad, the outdoors in general, fly fishing on Shell Creek until it’s too dark to see, hunting with my dad and better yet…learning from my dad as we hunt”
Should we consider this a warning of what was to come? Somehow the thought of being a vet and “killing things or trying to kill things (animals)” doesn’t seem an appropriate comment for someone studying to save cats, dogs, and horses. Did any of her professors or classmates see this coming?

“I told my dad that I was going to one day write a book and I have full intentions to do so.”
The past few days should give her enough material to make that book a possibility.
