" Following widespread public outcry after PETA released video of callous students jumping rope with intestines from cats slated for dissection, the North East Independent school district has made the compassionate decision to ban cat dissection across all schools. Through its educational grants program, PETA has offered to donate humane teaching tools, such as digital dissection software, that has been shown to teach students better than crudely cutting apart dead animals.
