Last week, we were informed of a workshop that was going to take place on Saturday, during which a perfectly healthy calf was to be killed with a drug overdose so that he could be dissected for a crude vaccination training demonstration. This event was sponsored by the Pennsylvania Beef Council, and Penn State students from a 4-H group were set to attend.
We immediately contacted the 4-H group and the beef council about it, and so did our besties in the Penn State Vegetarian Club. They flooded the 4-H group contacts with e-mails calling on them to cancel the cruel event and replace all future events with the humane and superior non-animal tools that are currently available to teach veterinary skills. And with that, the workshop was canceled and all future trainings will use humane non-animal teaching methods!
Don’t you just love happy endings? And this story has a fab lesson: Use your voice (or your keyboard) whenever you can to help those in need even when there’s not much time—it works!
PETA has offered to donate free non-animal teaching tools to the council.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
