Washington University in St. Louis said it would stop using cats to teach students. It hasn't.

What a barbaric thing to do to helpless cats who did not get a choice. Shame on them. Use the simulators, that is what they are for. I suspect someone just likes torturing animals, weed them out.

They lied, as most do. Once again, cats and other animals can't refuse to be test objects or training tools. Once again, more outrage has to be heard and felt.

Appalling. To lie over this makes their behaviour even more pathetic.

"We probably wouldn’t have heard about this at all if the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine hadn’t followed up and organized a doctor-led protest outside the medical school.

The PCRM surveyed nearly 200 pediatric residency programs in the U.S., and only three -- Washington University and two affiliated with the military -- are still using cats as teaching tools for intubating babies."

Read with pain :-(
