ENFIN A-T-0N ENVIE DE DIRE!!!
BRAVO PETA!!!We're starting 2013 off with a bang! President Obama has just signed into law a bill that includes language requiring the Department of Defense to create a strategy and timeline by March 1, 2013, for replacing the shooting, stabbing, and dismembering of animals in military training drills with human simulators and other modern non-animal methods.
This is a milestone moment in our ongoing campaign to stop the military from tormenting thousands of live animals each year in these archaic trauma exercises!
When this lifesaving provision was first inserted into the National Defense Authorization Act last year, PETA and its supporters sprang into action with e-mail and call-in campaigns to urge members of Congress to support the important measure. We now know that they took our concerns seriously and acted on them!
To bolster our efforts to urge the Department of Defense and Congress to address this vital issue, PETA released disturbing, never-before-seen undercover video footage this past year showing live goats who had their limbs broken and cut off with tree trimmers in a military training drill. A PETA complaint based on the video led to federal citations for animal welfare violations and prompted Congress to request an investigation into the contractor that conducted the cruel training. PETA also coauthored a study showing that three-quarters of the U.S.'s NATO allies do not use any animals in their military medical training programs, instead employing superior non-animal methods such as humanlike simulators.
Tens of thousands of PETA members and supporters—including high-profile military veterans Oliver Stone, Bob Barker, and Gideon Raff—have written to the Department of Defense asking the agency to modernize its training program by replacing its deadly animal laboratories with more effective, human-relevant simulation tools.
Let's make history in 2013! Please click here to take action today to stop crude military trauma training on animals.
