More than 80 percent of NATO nations have confirmed to PETA that they do not use any animals for military medical training exercises—including Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Turkey. This is clear evidence that there is no need to harm animals to prepare military medical personnel to save lives.

Only five NATO nations—Canada, Denmark, Norway, the U.S., and the U.K.—continue to use animals in these barbaric exercises. The Canadian military cuts apart and poisons live pigs with toxic chemicals, the military of Norway shoots live pigs with high-velocity bullets and inflicts numerous life-threatening injuries and bone fractures, and the military of Denmark—with participation from the U.K. Ministry of Defence—subjects live pigs to horrific bullet and blast wounds. The U.S. military stabs, shoots, dismembers, burns, and kills thousands of animals each year as well.

military training exercisePETA has released disturbing, never-before-seen photographs of live pigs hung from a wooden frame and shot with rifles and handguns during a military training course in Denmark.

Lifelike human simulators that “breathe” and “bleed” and can be used in realistic battlefield scenarios have been shown by military and civilian studies to prepare doctors and medics to treat injured humans more effectively than mutilating and killing animals.

These barbaric animal laboratories also go against the spirit of Canadian, British, Norwegian, and Danish national laws and regulations as well as likely violating European Union law, which requires the use of non-animal training methods whenever possible.

Please take a moment to contact military officials in Canada, Norway, Denmark, and the U.K. and politely and urge them to stop harming and killing animals by joining the overwhelming majority of their NATO allies who use exclusively modern non-animal methods for military medical training exercises.

The military should
Only be for defense,
And yet they commit
Many a terrible offense,
Against animals with
Whom they wage
One sided war,
Heinous acts we all
Time to let kindness
Enter your ranks,
Leave animals alone
And when you do,
Many thanks!

    Doing simple keyword searches in the USPTO database or in Google Patent
    Search reveals thousands of paperwork that debate or in a roundabout way implicate search optimization.
