Revealed: MoD Killing Animals for Cruel Training

Posted by 3 years ago | Permalink | Comments (124)

Earlier this month, the UK military participated in invasive and deadly animal-based trauma training exercises in Denmark. British surgeons took part in drills in which live pigs were lined up at a firing range and shot with high-velocity bullets. Eighteen pigs sustained life-threatening multi-organ injuries and bone fractures in the archaic exercise, which took place between 6 and 8 November in Jaegerspris Kaserne. Animals who didn’t die during the exercise were later killed.

Maiming animals in this way is not allowed in the UK under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 – which does not permit the use of animals for trauma training. For this reason, these cruel biennial exercises are outsourced to Denmark.

PETA has appealed to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to end the British Armed Forces’ participation in these cruel drills. More than three-quarters of the UK’s NATO allies – including Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey – have confirmed that they do not use any animals for military training.

Lifelike human simulators that “breathe” and “bleed” in realistic battlefield scenarios have been shown by military and civilian trauma teams to prepare doctors and medics to treat injured humans more effectively than animal laboratories. Studies show that simulators are better at improving the technical skills, self-confidence and coordination of doctors and medics who are deployed for military missions. However, a recent response to a Freedom of Information request made by PETA suggests that the MoD has not adequately considered nor implemented such superior non-animal trauma training methods, which are used instead of animals by the overwhelming majority of the UK’s NATO allies.

Please take a moment to contact the MoD and politely let it know that its decision to ship out members of the armed forces for deadly and cruel exercises in Denmark – which would be illegal if conducted in the UK – is impossible to justify medically, ethically and educationally. Also urge the MoD to join the overwhelming majority of the UK’s NATO allies who do not shoot, stab and dismember animals for their military training exercises.

You can contact the MoD here.

    I am very proud to be a british citizen, but i am absolutely disgusted to have found out that the MOD has made a decision to ship out members of the armed forces for deadly and cruel exercises in Denmark – which would be illegal if conducted in the UK – is impossible to justify medically, ethically and educationally. I strongly urge you to join the overwhelming majority of the UK’s NATO allies who do not shoot, stab and dismember animals for their military training exercises.

    Absolutely sickening. If it isn’t legal here, there’s a reason for that. Backwards thinking.

  • Pam Radford-Lamb commented on November 18, 2012 at 10:25 am

    It is appalling that the MoD is countenancing this utterly inhumane exercise which would be illegal in our own country. Please desist immediately. If this were generally known about, there would be a public outcry.

    stop this barbaric cruelty and use humane methods instead

  • francesca betts commented on November 18, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Please stop using live animals for army training. It has been proved that the human simulators are more effective so why on would you take part in animal cruelty? Please stop
    yours sincerely

    This pracice is illegal in the U.K and therefore should not be condoned by any U.K citizen or organisation.

    Sending people overseas in order to take part in an activity which has already been declared as cruel and immoral and is illegal is a sign of diregard for the laws of our country and should be punishable by law.

    This matter should be brought before the House of Commons immediately for consideration and the people responsible dealt with immediately by the courts.

    time to end all this – us humans could be next as bait

  • keith commented on November 18, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    I read this in the Daily Mail today, actually the surgeons were laughing at the prospect of these exercises.. or were they enjoying the freebies and creature comforts on offer at the hotel. One NHS surgeon who is attached to the army requested his name should not be given for fear of reprisals by animal rights people. If he was so ethically sure he was doing this for all the right reasons why hide your name.. or perhaps just a coward really ?

    Why re these practices still carried out? Are pigs the enemy? No they aren’t they are innocent bystanders caught up in s brutal ‘sport’ under the guise of ‘training’. I am totally opposed to this. It is barbaric and totally unnecessary.

  • Mark commented on November 18, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    I’m an army doctor. Anyone who thinks simulators can prepare you for the damage done to humans in wartime is truly deluded. Colleagues who have attended this course describe it as invaluable. If I could I would take you into the RESUS bay in Camp Bastion, where I’m working now, and show you the damage we face about ten to twenty times daily. This course teaches skills that save human lives. Simulators absolutely, categorically do not. I’m not anti-sim. We do lots of sim work too, but for valuable experience in treating the men, women and children exposed to blasts, explosions, fragging, amputation etc, this course works and it helps to save human life, both in the military and the civilian setting. The animals are anaesthetised by trained anaesthetists, and all care is overseen by veterinary surgeons. Compare that to what append in an abattoir. Quite frankly PETA is simply trying to raise a headline and their own profile. It would be better for all concerned if you stuck to what you know rather than publishing “Daily Mail” like scare stories.

    • Catalina commented on November 20, 2012 at 12:20 pm

      Mark, i can understand that the injuries people get whilst fighting are often horrific and have to be dealt with quickly and effectively, if i had it my way there would not be wars where people got such injuries, and it saddens me that people, both soldiers and civilians are harmed, but in my eyes innocent pigs are the same as innocent civilians, they are being pulled into something that they don’t want to be involved in and harmed as a result. Human and non human lives should be valued at the same level, i’m sure one of the reasons pigs are used for practices is because they are biologically similar to us, if they are so similar to us then i’m sure they do not want to be used as a training dummy and then killed, just the same as we wouldn’t. i can understand that troops need training and to be prepared for situations where that training can save lives, but i do not think that killing pigs is the right way to go about it, otherwise troops are supporting the very thing they go to war to fight, barbaric treatment of innocents.

    • Julia commented on November 20, 2012 at 1:14 pm

      Mark, in many ways I agree with you, but just because commentators have not said so, they, like many Peta supporters, probably do not use animal products. I have two main points where I cannot agree:
      1) Abattoirs are horrific, but so is this, and as my gran used to say “Two wrongs don’t make a right”.
      2) I am vegan, atheist and pacifist. I do not believe that any animal is “better” than any other, and none should have to give up its life to save a human one. Nor should we breed animals for this purpose.
      Did you know that pigs are more intelligent than dogs? Using pigs for this purpose is akin to using prisoners of war!

  • Mark commented on November 18, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Furthermore I fail to see how any individual who eats meat or uses any type of animal product in their life can argue against this. If you are a vegan who eschews all types of animal products, then I will respect your beliefs and your passion even though we disagree. All others have no basis on which to argue against this – if you disagree, I would invite you to visit any abattoir, and see how you meat or meat product is delivered to you.

    • David Harriman commented on November 21, 2012 at 10:56 am

      I am a Vegan, and a Nurse, but I fail to see what benefit you get from shooting innocent animals. I mean if military medical science doesn’t yet know what damage bullets do when they tear through muscle and shatter bone, then what the hell have you been doing for the past hundred years?
      I have every sympathy with the lads caught-up in this horrific conflict, it really must be hell for everyone concerned – especially when you think that we have de-stabilised the middle-east, and caused all this death and destruction just to secure cheap oil for the Americans.

  • Diane Miller commented on November 18, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Is there something mentally wrong with these people? Surely they are not normal.

  • Ian James commented on November 18, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    You have no right to complain about doctors practicing on live animals. This training saves lives. Unless you have seen surgery on the front line (I have), or had friends die from wounds (I have) then I suggest you do your homework before posting ill-thought-out polemic on your website. Electronic simulators are no subsititute, ask any surgeon, military or otherwise.
    You are wasting the time of the public and badmouthing good medical practice. This looks more like a thinly veiled publicity exercise for PETA.
    Those of you reading this post, please do your homework on PETA before you endorse their opinions, as I think you will be disappointed once you learn more about this organisation.
    Would you rather a pig died under sedation, or your family member died in agony?

    • Catalina commented on November 20, 2012 at 12:19 pm

      Ian James, killing animals is not “good medical practice”, medics are supposed to save lives not end them, whether they are human or non human lives. How would you feel if your family were sedated, fired at with high velocity bullets and then played doctor upon? would that be humane?

    • Julia commented on November 20, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Personally, I’d rather the family member could be euthanised, and I and all my family would agree that no animal should die to save them.

    • Kay Keenan commented on November 20, 2012 at 3:14 pm

      If these pigs were shot under sedation . . . . . .

    • David commented on November 20, 2012 at 5:43 pm

      So what have PETA done that is so bad? What homework should we be doing?

    I cannot believe that this is happening – what are you teaching these people? You really think that they will revert to nice, kind, compassionate citizens when they get home? There are places for the criminally insane, and that’s where you all belong – the soldiers should refuse to take part, the surgeons as well. Who thought this up in the first place? I hope that he or she is in prison for cruelty. A thinly veiled excuse for torturing animals for the sake of it. Words cannot convey my disgust.

  • Patricia Wicker commented on November 19, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    THIS IS HORRIFIC!!!!! SO CRUEL STOP THIS IN THE NAME OF GOD!!!!

  • Paul commented on November 19, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    I am a military anaesthetist who also works in a Major Trauma Centre in London. Without experiments like these the development of trauma care both in the military and civilian setting would not have advanced much over the last 10-20 years. The research and experience gained at these and other such laboratories has helped save lives not only in Afghanistan and Iraq but also in London and all other major UK cities on a daily basis. People forget that the skills the military doctors learn are not just confined to the battlefield, but are shared with our civilian colleagues to affect the lives of thousands of trauma patients across the UK each day.
    PETA make an interesting point about simulation – it is a useful and widely used training tool. However no simulator – no matter how hi-fidelity or how realistic – can give you the same type of data on tissue injury, inflammatory response, microvascular behaviour, wound edge adherence, coagulation response to trauma, respiratory mechanics changes, cardiac output changes, the effect of catecholamine surges, etc, etc.
    These experiments save and have saved countless lives, not just those of soldiers, but the lives of injured cyclists, pedestrians and motorists, victims of stabbings, shootings and terrorist attacks, people who have fallen off ladders or out of windows and all manner of other trauma that could very easily befall any of us, military or civilian. There is no other way to learn these lessons – trust me, we have tried them all – and PETA need to understand that when it comes between choosing between the lives of some anaesthetised pigs or the lives of seriously injured people, then it isn’t really any choice at all. Those of us who deal with trauma on a regular basis understand that.

    • T G Flinders commented on December 5, 2012 at 11:15 pm

      What absolute rubbish Paul. Dr Mengela made exactly the same argument about experiments on Jews. There has to be a limit on how cruel one is prepared to be to our fellow sentient beings on this small planet, particulary when it comes to highly intelligent animals such as pigs. I wish you no ill but would pass by on the other side of the street if I met you. Stop kidding yourself you’re doing God’s work and get another job

    Appalling! Just because humans are unable to live in peace with each other, and need to keep finding new ways to kill each other, is no excuse for making innocent animals suffer in the process.
    Surely there are enough violent crimes/injuries inflicted on people every day as to make this kind of thing obsolete?

    Why should animals be tortured and die in agony because -man has decided to test on them instead of humans -they don’t make war -man is the agressor in all things -all it is doing is dehumanising the men ,–Those who experiment on animals should -never be able to quiet their own consciene by telling themselves that these cruelties have a worthy aim-Albert Schweitzer–physician and Nobel prize laureate.

  • Helena Martin commented on December 6, 2012 at 6:36 am

    Maiming animals this way especially animals as intelligent as pigs is not only inhumane it is actually inhuman. There are so many other ways these ‘training’ exercises can be done if you so choose. This is akin to the Japanese killing whales for ‘scientific’ purposes – an excuse that the whole world knows is a sham. Let’s not join these people who do know better but choose to ignore their choices.

  • Reetta Hänninen commented on December 7, 2012 at 10:20 am

    The more I hear stuff like this,the more bitter and angry I become towards the mankind. I try to remind myself there are also lots of good, compassionate people who could never do this!
    It never surprises me anymore to hear evil deeds men do, every deed more sick than another.
    I read about the similar training taking place in America,but I never imagined something like this could happen in Europe, and in the Northern Europe to boot!
    STOP THIS SICK, SATANIC CRUELTY that it is!!!!!!!

  • Sandra Haynes commented on December 10, 2012 at 9:50 am

    How can it be justified, these pointless and very cruel things should not happen in this day and age when there are lots of other courses that can be taken.

  • Martine Vaffier commented on December 10, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Shame on you!

  • Caroline Westbrook-Jones commented on December 10, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    God the creator, did not create mankind to destroy creation, mankind destroys creation through reckless and misguided use of freewill.

  • Alethea Kniffen commented on December 10, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    If you wouldn’t want your children to feel this kind of pain, why would you let any other innocent being feel it.

  • Suzanne Canning commented on December 11, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Pigs have feelings; they also suffer depression like human being. People without empathy towards animals should be placed away from human civilization they should be locked in institution probably never released. Also people who conduct experiments on animals their IQ is very low. As society we have to stop all these experiments.

  • Lynne Witton commented on December 15, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    What kind of man could do this to defenseless animals tired up to be shot. unfortunately all too many of them. Put a gun in a boys hand and he will eventually shoot an animal, put one in a mans hand and god knows where it will end.

  • M G KING commented on December 15, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    It makes me think of what the Nazi pigs did to there sisters and children,and brothers, the uk is slipping deeper into the quick sand of Nazi history,

    After all Adolf Hitler did think that the uk would not get involved in the war as we are so similar to him, blind leading the blind,

    ” mod”
    more like
    ” mad”

    not in my name does the uk shoot pigs,

    • imogene martyn commented on June 26, 2014 at 4:04 pm

      I had this on my mind for some time now, about the Nazis ruling every animal cruIEity they can think up. THEY ARE NAZIS., SO MUCH OUT CRY ABOUT PEOPLE,BUT WHERE IS THERE OUT CRY OVER THESE TERRIBLE THING DONE IN OUR NAME TO THE ANIMALS. WHY DO WE PUT UP WITH IT? ONE PERSON CANNT DO ANY THING< BUT TOGETHER WE CAN STOP IT ALL. PEOPLE DO NOT NEED TO EAT MEAT. THEY ARE OMNIVORES, THEY SHOULD BE MADE TO VEIW NOT ONLY THE TERRIBLE TREATMENT OF THE ANIMALS BUT ALSO THE WAY THEY ARE FORCED TO LIVE IN THEIR OWN SHIT WITH SCABS , FLIES ^ TOTAL UNSANATREE CONDITIONS OR WHATEVER ,.JUST TOO FILL SOME FAT BARSTARDS GUT.

      LETS GET TOGHTER AND STOP ALL THIS PAIN ,NEEDLESS SUFFERING.
