No more dog sacrifices in medical schools

JC - did you know that medical schools were sacrificing dogs?

The new year began with a piece of good news. Case Western Reserve School of Medicine will end cardiology lessons wherein students examine the beating heart of a live dog, which results in the animal’s death. This brings an end to the long-standing tradition of using live dogs in all American medical schools.

Unreal. How could I not have known about that?

Well, glad it's over. For now, anyways.
