    SEE IT: Dead cats used to perform dance in Oklahoma high school biology class in video posted by PETA
    BY Tobias Salinger
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Tuesday, May 12, 2015, 9:57 PM


    Cat corpses purportedly slated for dissection at an Oklahoma high school became dance props in a video made public by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals on Tuesday.

    The disturbing footage, which the animal rights organization said comes from a biology class at Oklahoma City’s well-regarded Harding Charter Preparatory High School, shows at least eight lab coat-clad students and one apparent ‘conductor’ moving the feline cadavers in unison to music that sounds like the popular Meow Mix cat food jingle.

    Students shown in the video with their faces blurred bob the dead animals up and down, line them up to fall down like dominoes and make the lifeless creatures touch paws as if high-fiving. One person stands in front of the group and appears to lead the others through the routine.

    A “concerned whistleblower” alerted PETA to the footage after students posted the video on social media this past fall, Samantha Suiter, PETA’s science education specialist, told the Daily News. The organization, which opposes the practice of animal dissection in any school program, brought the matter to school and state officials’ attention, she said.

    The video appears to show students in lab coats performing a dance routine with the dead cats they are about to dissect.
    “Surely this video is not educational and clearly demonstrates a disrespect for the animals that are being cut apart at Harding Charter Prep,” Suiter said.

    Officials at the school, which received an A+ rating for the 2013-2014 school year from the Oklahoma Department of Education, didn’t immediately respond Tuesday night to a request to verify the footage or provide any information on reprimands or punishment for those involved.

    Harding Charter principal Justin Hunt told a state official the video was “out of line” but said he disagreed with PETA’s suggestion that the school switch to computer software allowing for digital representation of animal anatomy, according to email correspondence from April that PETA shared with the News.

    Harding Charter Preparatory High School in Oklahoma City received an A+ grade from state evaluators for the 2013-2014 school year. The school scored an A rating in every academic discipline except for Biology I in its latest report card.
    “Most of the students in the video were no longer students here at HCP when I had received the video, so they were not punished,” he wrote. “However, I have had conversations with the teacher. She has ensured me that this will never happen again.”

    The National Science Teachers Association supports dissection of animals in class lessons that help students learn scientific skills, gain knowledge of organisms and enhance their appreciation for the complexity of life, standards posted on its website say.

    But, the organization “encourages districts to ensure that animals are properly cared for and treated humanely, responsibly, and ethically.”

    We had to do about 12 different dissections in my honors bio class in high school. My lab partner did them all, and I wrote all the paperwork.

    I had to dissect fetal pigs. I have to admit, it was my favorite class.

    That's edgier humor than anything I've seen on the HSS in about a decade.


    And since I've done the exact same thing with chickens before putting them on the barbecue, I'd be a massive hypocrite if I pretended to be offended by this.
