Urgent Action Needed on Behalf of Goats and Pigs

Our animal rights community is being urged to act immediately to stop an implausible but yet very real act of extreme cruelty - funded by U.S. taxpayers.

The US Army plans to stab, shoot, and break the legs of pigs and goats this week - starting today - as part of a training program at Fort Dix, according to Farm Sanctuary. While we have a volunteer army, these helpless animals certainly had no choice in volunteering to be brutalized in this needless act.

Please urge Col. Ronald R. Thaxton, the Installation Commander at Fort Dix, to cancel this at once using this form. Learn more.
PETA is asking us to e-mail our Senators and Congressperson to contact the Secretary of the Army and the Army Surgeon General to insist that they prohibit the military use of animals in trauma- and chemical-casualty training courses and use available non-animal teaching methods instead. Contact your Senators and Congressperson through their web site.
