Tell This Oklahoma School To Stop Cruel Dissections On Cats And Other Animals
This petition made change with 55,951 supporters!
I couldn't believe when I read that students at a school here in Oklahoma were videotaped dancing with dead cats -- in the classroom! Video recently surfaced of this horrifying incident, and now I want your help on my petition asking Harding Charter Preparatory High School to stop using cats and other animals for dissections.
As People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) puts it, "Studies show that classroom animal dissection fosters insensitivity toward animals, and this troubling situation is a case in point. Cats used for classroom dissection are often someone's lost or stolen animal companion -- and in science classrooms, they're treated like disposable laboratory tools."
Principal Justin Hunt told the media that he agrees "animals should be treated and handled with respect and dignity." If the citizens of Oklahoma and the general public are to believe Principal Hunt, he should ensure cats and other animals are no longer killed for and disrespected in classrooms.
In this day and age, there are many technologically advanced alternatives to outdated use of cats and other animals to learn about anatomy. Please sign my petition asking Harding Charter Preparatory High School to stop using animals when so many humane options already exist and are used in schools around the world!
