Bitch about PETA all you want...
But they get the job done.http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/04/bolivia_victory.php?c=weekly_enews
In Bolivia, they were training on live dogs. By stabbing and abusing them. They said it was to get soldiers used to the bloodiness of war. I saw this video was released a couple of weeks ago.. I didn't watch it... I usually just trash the PETA emails before opening them because when I read them I get so angry and so disgusted that I feel sick..
Anyway, tonight I got an email which said they had victory -- Bolivia agreed to prohibit these exercises in the army -- so went to read the story. And I clicked on the video. And OH MY GOD. They were stabbing the dogs while they cried out in pain... Ripped their hearts out.. One of the guys stuck his face into the then-dead dog's abdomen.
I really cannot understand how people can be so fucking evil. The dogs were yelping and crying! How could you be so cruel?!
So anyway. I'm glad PETA, the buncha maniacs, are around to draw attention to this sort of stuff. They're trying to get the U.S. army to stop doing something similar -- medical personnel apparently use dogs to practice amputations or something. Gah.
