Petitions For Change: November Edition.

About once every two months I have a blog post titled "Petitions For Change." I find these petitions on Change.org and I choose one that I find suitable for the blog. In order to sign this petition, create an account on the Change website and click sign on the image below. Registering is free and very quick.

This months petition is about animal warfare with the U.S. Military.


Below is the information stated by Bryan D. Freehling, the man who began this petition.

"Thousands of live animals are shot, stabbed, dismembered, burned, and poisoned every year in U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) training exercises designed to train medics and members of the infantry how to treat human battlefield injuries."
"After more than a year of filing complaints with the DoD and military bases over the cruel and deadly use of live animals in trauma and chemical casualty training exercises, legislation—H.R. 4269, the BEST Practices Act—has been introduced to gradually replace the horrific use of animals in military training with modern, sophisticated non-animal methods, such as high-tech human patient simulators."

Only 35 signatures are needed in order to complete this petition.
Feel free to sign and be one of the last 35 to make this happen.
