In military trauma training courses, soldiers shoot pigs in the face, repeatedly expose monkeys to a neurotoxin, and amputate goats' legs with gardening tools--even though nonanimal methods are widely available and can handle every aspect of military

Leave it to the military. This is deplorable. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know how to inflict damage nor the outcome. These people call themselves professionals? It is disgusting.

We are all American citizens when it comes to this, too bad we can't send a petition, I'd like to send a loaded missile disguised as a needle, and let the monkeys practice on them or the pigs or whoever, God what kind of Morons have we got running this show, I thought we fought the last war to get rid of Dr. Mengele at Auschwitz, or are we just exchanging prisoners.

Is there a place somewhere on the Petition now that allows Canadians to sign this?

Jasmin, I agree with you totally. There is no excuse for this cruelty. The military needs to be held accountable for their actions. Quite likely the victims of these horrible acts would show mercy, they are animals and animals know how to live together. They do not torture, maim or kill for the pleasure of it.
