Stop the purchase of 3,600 goats to use in cruel trauma training

PETA blew the lid off highly secretive U.S. military training exercises in which more than 10,000 live animals are violently mutilated each year.

As a result of a brave whistleblower, PETA has obtained sickening undercover video footage of a crude training course for members of the U.S. Coast Guard. Click here to watch the video now.

The U.S Army is now looking into purchasing 3,600 goats.

The goats will be used in trauma training exercises like this one.
Shocking video footage released by PETA has shown live goats having their legs cut off with tree trimmers while conscious and moaning. Eyewitness accounts say that goats in trauma training are even shot in the face, stabbed with scalpels and cut open.

Some of the goats moaned and kicked their legs during the mutilations. 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.

Take action now to end this cruel training! Sign this petition and also send an email to Contract Specialist Rowena Godaire at godairer@soc.mil and politely urge her to stop this purchase of goats for cruel trauma training. 

*Note: Please do not use the words "goat" or "goats" in your e-mail to the Army because it seems to be blocking e-mails with those words in them.


Thanks for your help!

      This is animal abuse. There are more humane ways to train the military than to use live animals. Please do not purchase any more animals for this use.
