October is “Cut Out Dissection” Month, and I’ve got some awesome news to celebrate: California’s Newport-Mesa Unified School District has confirmed to PETA that it’s replacing cruel cat dissections in district schools with modern virtual-dissection software! This awesome victory follows a PETA plea and offer to provide the district with non-animal learning methods. Now students will get to learn more effectively and without chopping up dead animals in the classroom.
The district made the decision to eliminate cat dissection after disturbing photos of Newport Harbor High Schools students playing, posing, and smiling with the mutilated bodies of cats used in a biology class surfaced on Facebook. The photos were brought to the attention of PETA and the faculty by brave and compassionate students from the school’s animal rights club, Compassion in Action.
Cats who are used for dissection come from supply houses, which obtain the bodies of lost, stray, and abandoned animals from animal shelters. This means that some cats used for dissection may be someone’s best friend!
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.
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
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 :)
