Stop cutting live goats' legs off with tree trimmers.

Instructors working for a military contractor repeatedly break and cut off the limbs of live goats with tree trimmers, stab the animals with scalpels to cause internal injuries, and cut into their abdomens and crudely pull out their organs. All of this is being done while the animals are STILL ALIVE!

Some of the goats moaned and kicked their legs during the mutilations, which veterinarians who viewed the video say are signs that the goats were not adequately anesthetized and were feeling pain. Later in the day, according to the whistleblower, the goats were shot in the face with pistols and were hacked apart with an ax while STILL ALIVE.

This needs to stop! Instructors claim that these horrific "exercises" were designed to ready soldiers for traumatic events. But when will our soldiers ever be put into any position where they will need to cut and mutilate live animals or people?

Please sign this position and tell the US Department of Defense to STOP this cruel treatment!

      How would the miliary men doing this horrendous mutilitation like it done to them? I have seen some horrible videos but this is #1 horrible and tells you the character of the men doing this.

      Disgusting. This must be stopped. We should be evolving into more civilised humans instead of reverting back to barbarians.

      I first thought this atrocity was occuring in a third-world country - and I am absolutely shocked - I can't believe that this is happening in USA! In the military for Pete's sake! It is heinous, fiendish, sadistic, and totally inhuman. Are your soldiers trained to be monsters? STOP THIS HORROR NOW - AND PERMANENTLY!
