More than 10,000 live animals are violently mutilated each year in secretive U.S. military training exercises.

Thanks to a brave whistleblower, PETA has obtained sickening undercover video footage of a crude medical training course for members of the U.S. Coast Guard.

In the video, course instructors repeatedly break and cut off the limbs of live goats with tree trimmers, stab the animals with scalpels, cut holes in them, and pull out their organs.

Some of the goats moaned loudly and kicked their legs during the mutilations. Later in the day, according to the whistleblower, the goats were shot in the face with pistols and hacked apart with an ax while still alive.

TAKE ACTION NOW TO END THIS CRUEL TRAINING!

    How is this legal? This is so disturbing. How does this have anything to do with military training? I can’t even imagine what those innocent goats went through.

    Couldn’t even get through the whole thing. This is sick and absolutely unnecessary. For people who are going into the military to “save lives”, these people sure are heartless.

    What good does this training really do? Like honestly? Brutally torturing a helpless creature to “train to save people” is not right in any way, can’t the use computer graphics for that? I mean look at all the things movie directors can do, you cant tell me that they cant use that type of thing to help them train?

      Actually computer graphics can not be use for training, however, because of computer graphics there are now models/simulators that can be use and are available for such training. Medical Schools use them now instead of live animals. (We just have to keep working on laboratories to get them to stop testing on live animals!)

      Personally I do not see the need for breaking the animals legs or cutting them off using some crude implement – and w/o sedation. WTF is that going to teach? How to brutally torture someone? To give these medics and medical personnel live trauma victims to work on? But first they have to cause the traumatic injury? WTF is THAT all about?

      Seriously, they need to stop this torture NOW, no reason, rhyme or excuse for it! Why do we need to train our fighting men and women how to inflict pain and torture techniques on another living being? THAT is sick.

    There is absolutely no need for the use of live animals for trauma training, WTF is their problem; do they get off on the cries of pain from these poor animals or just in that they can cause this type of pain and ABUSE and NOT be held responsible for it? BULL!

    I am totally disgusted… I would think with all the new technology they can simulate human emergency care instead of using a helpless animal whose anatomy is very different from ours.

    Our military needs to get with the times and stop torturing animals! It’s cruel, unnecessary, outdated, and when this gets leaked to the public, gets us OUTRAGED.
