a Navy corpsman told The New York Times that instructors 'shot [his pig] twice in the face with a 9-millimeter pistol, and then six times with an AK-47 and then twice with a 12-gauge shotgun. And then he was set on fire.'

While I was editing the PCRM one, it occurred to me that these experiences must be quite traumatic for significant numbers of recruits like the Navy corpsman in the article, so I added a line about PTSD.

"I am concerned about the military's use of animals in training soldiers to deal with traumatic injury on the battlefield. This training method is cruel and unnecessary and is quite likely exposing significant numbers of trainees to post traumatic stress disorder before they are even deployed. It is time for America's military to modernize its teaching methods and abandon animal use in all training. The military should adopt comprehensive curricula and take full advantage of advanced technology that simulates human anatomy and the hectic environment of war"

Just a thought

This is barbaric and disgusting. To think that these men are being trained to protect??? How awful to have so little regard for life.
