Here’s what YOU need to do: Urge Lackland officials to replace the cruel use of animals for intubation training with superior medical simulators immediately.

Send a polite note to: 59mdw.pa@us.af.mil

Not sure what to write? Copy the short message below and send it to Lackland officials:


I was shocked to learn that the’s 59th Medical Wing continues to use ferrets for intubation training, despite knowing that simulators to replace animal use are available. In this cruel intubation training, ferrets have hard plastic tubes repeatedly showing down their throats, a procedure that can cause bleeding, swelling, pain, scarring, collapsed lungs, and even death! Please replace the cruel use of animals for intubation training with more effective and humane simulators.

There is an ancient practice of manhood in which a man puts a ferret down their pants, I think the person who thinks that this is a way to treat any living thing should have a few ferrets shoved down their pants and see how manly they are after that.

Signed. People seem determined to torture all living things. They are humane use of dolls for this procedure, but they prefer to torture innocent animals. Terrible!
