Student Uses Cat’s Intestines as Jumping Rope – Demand Cruelty Free Classes

Target: Dr. Brian Gottardy, Superintendent of North East Independent School District

Goal: Praise the North East Independent School District for banning cat dissections after student and encourage a similar ban state-wide.

The North East Independent School District in Texas has just made the compassionate choice to ban cat dissections in response to a student’s using a cat’s intestines as a jump rope. Over 10 million animals are killed for school dissections annually, but now the North East Independent School District will be utilizing cruelty-free methods.

Dissection is not only cruel but also ineffective. Not a single medical school requires dissection and studies show that students seem to lose interest in science after forced dissections. The animals used in dissections are often taken from the wild, shelters, or killed in slaughterhouses. Thankfully, there are now digital programs that can teach students about the inner workings of animals’ bodies.

Sign this petition to praise the North East Independent School District for banning cat dissections and to encourage a similar ban throughout the state of Texas.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Gottardy,

Reportedly, a student from your school district recently used a cat’s intestine as a jump rope. Shortly after this incident, the district decided to ban all cat dissections. I was ecstatic to hear this news.

Not only is dissection cruel, but it is also ineffective. Not a single medical school requires it and studies show that students often lose interest in science after being forced to dissect. Many of the animals used in dissections are stolen from the wild, taken from shelters, or killed in slaughterhouses. Thankfully, digital programs are now available that can teach people about the inner workings of animals’ bodies without all the violence.

Thank you for making the compassionate choice to ban cat dissections. I can only hope more school districts follow in your footsteps.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. WHY WOULD A SCHOOL EVEN WANT TO ALLOW DISECTION OF A CAT OR ANY ANIMAL, THIS IS ABHORENTLY CRUEL, I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA AND WE DONT EVER DISECT ANIMALS IN SCHOOLS, THIS IS TEACHING CHILDREN THAT CRUELY TO ANIMALS IS OK, THERE IS NEVER A REASON EVER TO TEACH CHILDREN THAT CRUELTY TO ANIMALS IS OK, I AM SHOCKED THAT THIS IS ALLOWED IN A COUNTRY LIKE THE USA, IF I LIVED IN AMERICA I WOULD REFUSE TO DISECT A CAT OR ANY ANIMAL, BAN THIS EVIL CRUELTY NOW.

    • So glad this horrible practice doesn’t happen in Australia.
      You are exactly right – this teaches children that it’s acceptable to abuse animals – for certain “useful” purposes.
      This cruel practice, along with all animal experimentation, should be PERMANENTLY BANNED WORLDWIDE.

      • I agree with you, but, Australia is in the process of killing as many cats as they possibly can, using any means possible. including using drones to drop poison into the woods which will kill every other animal and bird as well.

    • Somebody should use intestine as jump rope; what a piece of shit.

  2. people are disgusting.

    It is time to stop dissections of animals in schools. It does not teach young students any compassion for innocent animals. Abuse seems to be on the rise so teaching should be in the direction of kindness and empathy for all animals. Where was the teacher? How dare he allow such disrespect! He needs to be fired!

  4. Teachers that fail to teach compassion and respect must go! Don’t need dead-beats to teach how to be like themselves!

  5. OMG, what is this school doing, absolutely disgusting.

  6. Banning dissections is the progressive thing to do,thank you. As for this particular student, his behavior is a cause for concern. He needs to attend sensitivity classes for a start. Very disturbing.

  7. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE!!! BLOWS MY MIND THAT WE CAN CONTINUE THUS ARCHAIC, HEARTLESS KIND OF TEACHING.THESE KIDS SHOULD BE TAUGHT TO RESPECT ANIMAL LIFE, NOT SCREW WITH IT!!! GIVE ME A BREAK! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS SCHOOL!!!!?

  8. Jaime Perez says:

    Allowing this NOT teaching kids to be compassionate or respectful of animals. There are plenty of computer generated programs that would be better suited for schools.

  9. Kathryn Irby says:

    Not only Demand Cruelty-Free Classes, but see to it that the Parents of that little Bitch/Bastard be Prosecuted to the FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW BASED UPON BLATANT PARENTAL NEGLIGENCE IN THE RAISING/REARING OF THEIR BRATTY KID!!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!

  10. WHAT KIND OF INFANTILISTIC SCHOOL – GOD THANKS THAT WE ARE FAR AWAY< FROM THIS DEGENERATED STUPIDNESS

    POOR STUDENTS – WHAT CAN THEY LEARN THERE THEN SAPPY THINGS THEY WILL NEVER NEED IN THEIR WHOLE LIVE!!!

  11. EACH ANIMAL MUST BE PROTECTED AND RESPECTED –
    ONLY THE STUPID HUMAN CAN LEARN FROM ANIMALS
    Shame on ALL human beings
    Pooh
    This is typical of this (not all) shit of students.
    booze, drugs and fuck that’s all.
    Those fucking wankers
    I don’t call them “humans”. I call them subhuman demonic refuse. The scale of pain they inflicted upon an animal that did nothing to deserve it disturbs me to no end.
