One of the worst of the military
More than 6,000 goats and pigs are intentionally maimed.
The Department of Defense says trainers slice open live animals and saw off their limbs in order to train medics in how to treat human injuries.
Dr. James Santos is a retired Lieutenant Commander in the Navy and a physician. And after working with real patients in the field and at the Naval Medical Center, he knows that operating on live animals did not train him in how to treat real, complex human injuries.
But worst of all not only is this kind of animal cruelty unnecessary, it could actually make medics less prepared to treat real human injuries.
