PETA protests military's use of pigs in training

More than two dozen protesters gathered outside Camp Pendleton's main gate yesterday afternoon to denounce the use of pigs in military-trauma training.

The training has become standard on numerous U.S. military bases and off-site locations across the country during the eight years of war in the Middle East. It is intended to prepare frontline troops and corpsmen for the gore and pressure they will encounter treating wounds on the battlefield.

The pigs are connected to IV tubes delivering anesthesia. They are euthanized when training is completed.
