Memorial Day is supposed to be all about remembering those who have died while serving the United States, but who remembers the animals who are killed during the military’s trauma training? It’s time that everyone did.
In current training exercises, live pigs are shot, stabbed, and burned and live goats have their legs broken and cut off with tree trimmers!
These cruel exercises are conducted on many military bases in the U.S.—even though humane, superior methods, including human-patient simulators, exist. There’s NO reason why animals should be dying for these exercises, which even put soldiers at risk because they inadequately prepare troops to handle emergencies.
So this Memorial Day, help stop military trauma exercises! Here’s how:
1. Share the photo below with everyone you know on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram.
