Cats can finally breathe a little easier today.

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.

While this is GREAT (!!!) news, there are still thousands of others locked in laboratories who need YOUR help.

    It’s something they should be put in prison for, yet it’s completely legal.
    If they’re not willing to take into consideration the lives and feelings of the innocent defenseless beings they’re torturing, I’d like to think they would at least take into considering that torturing an animal permanently f**ks up a person’s brain.
    Unless our goal is to turn our children into psychopaths (or semi-psychopaths), this disgusting horror should not be in our schools.
