    Re: PETA at it again

    One of the comments on that site suggests the trainees go to an big city ER and work with gunshot victims. Good idea. Pigs are one thing but why not learn on actual humans. That is what they will be treating anyway.

    Maybe some PETA protesters will throw themselves in front of the pigs just before they're shot at. Solves 2 problems at once....

    Exactly.

    I know if I enterd the hospital on a Gurney bleeding Profusley,
    The last thing I'd want is some army trainees pokeing around
    inspecting my wounds to see what a bullet does.

    I'd definately Sue in this Case & I don't believe in Sueing.

    That's what animals are for.

    Although I think Shaved apes would be closer to Human tissue.

    I hope that the lessons learned are carried over and lives are saved down-range.

    I also hope the ham tastes good.

    This is not a new training technique.

    Well said Jim,

    IMHO ...The only difference between the pita guys and the pigs is...

    You can't eat the pita guys when the exercise is over.

    Re: PETA at it again

    i'm no PETA guy for sure. armed and dangerous. i love piggies dead and alive. but damn, shoot them for practice? i was a paramedic for lots of years. jump in a bus, go pick up wrecks, go to the E.R. lots of practice. and N.Y. pays for it all.
    if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch!

    Your right Edde and another thing that might suprise. Pigs can solve puzzles and learn tricks about 10 times faster than a smart dog.
