This affects millions of cats worldwide, please help me cease this practice at my school and tell others, too!
This could change the lives of cats for years to come at my school. Thank you!
(looks like you've already found it? hope so)
To answer AlixJ18, here is a link about the lack of laws to protect cats from becoming dissection models: http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/...s_answers.html
Class 'B' dealers may sell these animals to companies such as biological supply companies (who are also considered Class 'B' dealers under the AWA definition). Most of the animals obtained for dissection are bought from biological supply companies. The largest ones carry over 100 different species of animals from horseshoe crabs to dogfish sharks, from snakes to mink, from embalmed dogs to skinned, pregnant cats."
In fact, the reason this is so is because we get these cats for cheap from Mexico where very cruel procedures take place and are then shipped here. Also there is more detail about what happens in Mexico in the following sites. (http://www.messybeast.com/cat-dissect.html) (http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/..._higher_ed.pdf)
more than likely there bred to be dissected like frogs for schools. they dont just go around to the pound and collect frogs that are going to be euthanised. they breed them so they can be dissected in schools
But it's legal with frogs, but not with cats, that's why i wonder if it's a really prevalent thing to actually breed cats to be killed like other animals, if i was one of the school staff dealing with this, i would definitely be getting the cats from reputable sources that don't kill the cats for dissection, i would think going to illegal sources would be too much of a risk since they'd be involved in animal cruelty by law.
Yep, one of my mom's friends had to dissect a cat in college. The cat her group got turned out to be pregnant, too.
