After a five-year PETA campaign against Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL), the school has announced that it will stop abusing cats for intubation training exercises in its pediatric advanced life support course.
In undercover video footage released just six weeks ago, unskilled trainees can be seen shoving hard tubes down the windpipes of two cats used in the course, named Elliott and Jessie, and several students state that the cats woke up during the painful training sessions.
This amazing victory wouldn’t be possible without supporters like YOU who protested against the school, flooded its phone lines, and sent more than 75,000 e-mails in behalf of these cats.

I'm 15 years old. I love to juggle, bowl, do stage crew, play the piano, and run. I also love to help people out, and give back to the community as much as I can. I am part of a juggling organization that teaches children with disabilities, cancers, and those who are blind how to juggle. I volunteer at an animal shelter in Princeton. I am currently a sophomore in high school right now. Extracurricular activities that I do are: Winter/Spring Track, Stage Crew, and Cross Country. I have a pet dog, his name is Dash, and he is a long-haired Dachshund.
