Secretary's Speaking Engagement With Video Footage of Goats' Legs Cut Off With
Tree Trimmers by Coast Guard
For Immediate Release:June 25, 2012
Contact:David Perle 202-483-7382
Orlando, Flo. -- Wearing goat masks and holding signs that read, "Secretary Napolitano: End
Military Animal Labs," PETA members will gather outside the Buena Vista
Palace Hotel as Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano prepares to
address the 13th Annual Leadership Training Conference inside. The
activists will also screen recently leaked video footage showing a trauma training course for members of the Coast
Guard—which Napolitano oversees at the Department of Homeland Security—in which
live goats have their legs cut off with tree trimmers and their internal organs
pulled out as they moan and kick. The action is part of PETA's campaign calling
on the U.S. military to replace archaic and cruel animal laboratories with
superior, humane, simulation-based training methods widely in use around
the world, including in the 22 of 28 NATO countries that do not use any animals
for military medical training.
When: Tuesday, June 26, 11:30 a.m.
Where: Intersection of S. Apopka Vineland Road and Hotel Plaza Boulevard (near McDonald's in the Crossroads Shopping Plaza), Orlando
"The military must stop ignoring its own prohibition against using animals
when non-animal methods are available, as they are in this case," says
PETA Vice President Kathy Guillermo. "Our servicemembers deserve the best
training possible—and that means teaching them with lifelike human-patient
simulators, not having them stab and dismember moaning, kicking goats."

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
