Tell Congress to End the Military's War on Animals

Thousands of live animals are shot, stabbed, dismembered, burned, and poisoned every year in U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) training exercises designed to train medics and members of the infantry how to treat human battlefield injuries.

After more than a year of filing complaints with the DoD and military bases over the cruel and deadly use of live animals in trauma and chemical casualty training exercises, legislation—H.R. 4269, the BEST Practices Act—has been introduced to gradually replace the horrific use of animals in military training with modern, sophisticated non-animal methods, such as high-tech human patient simulators.
 
Please sign below asking yourr Congressional representative to support legislation that would phase out the use of animals in military medical training courses.
