Soldiers from Britain, Norway and Denmark are still trained in so-called trauma training on live animals. You shoot at pigs and cut off the limbs of goats. According to PETA, these practices violate the current EU legislation.

After more than two years of talks and protest campaigns by PETA United States and their international sister organizations the Polish armed forces have assured PETA now that the usage will fully replaced by animals in harrowing exercises for the training of medical personnel with modern simulation models of the human body.

In Denmark and Norway, maim, stab and shoot live pigs and other animals in cruel and archaic trauma training soldiers. British soldiers travelled specially to Denmark, to take part in the barbaric practices, because they are prohibited in Britain itself. Against the background that exist already advanced and superior free animal training methods, it is outrageous that this animal tortures still take place.

Animals with high speed ammo will be shot at the trauma training. You are stabbed, limbs amputated them and sometimes soldiers practice to reattach amputated legs, before finally the animals are killed.
Many of the sensitive pigs and goats, animals which are as smart as dogs and cats - suffer broken bones and organ failure before her death.

The trauma training are superfluous: 80% of NATO countries train their soldiers only with animal-free methods of teaching, including Germany. Such methods costs no innocent lives, are more efficient and reliable.

According to PETA, trauma training violate against the EU law. The 2010/63/CE directive says that animal testing may take place only if animal-free methods are not available. PETA has now written to the EU leaders and prompted them to investigate the violations of the present.

See the whistleblower video from the United States here, it shows the incredible atrocities during military exercises.
