Kitty Auschwitz (aka Texas Tech University) got some seriously bad publicity last year when PETA discovered that the school’s Health Sciences Center was buying homeless cats from local shelters and using them in medical training. According to PETA’s Action Center:

“The cats are forced to undergo painful intubation procedures in which hard plastic tubes are repeatedly forced down their wind pipes by course participants. This can result in bleeding, swelling, scarring of the animals’ throat tissue, collapsed lungs and even death.”

Recently, Texas-born actor Woody Harrelson got on board and wrote a letter expressing his thoughts to Texas Tech President John Baldwin. In the letter, Woody says:

“Harming and killing shelter animals for these exercises is unjustifiable, especially as realistic manikins that more accurately represent human anatomy and better prepare medical professionals to treat injured and sick children are readily available . . . I and countless others around the state are deeply discouraged to learn that Texas Tech is taking advantage of the tragic abundance of abandoned animals.”

We are too! Clean up your act, yo!
