QUOTE
Animal rights campaigners expressed outrage last night after the Ministry of Defence admitted blowing up 119 live pigs in explosives tests.

The MoD defended the experiments, saying they had 'saved many lives' in Afghanistan and Iraq.

They have led to improvements in body armour and the medical treatment of soldiers injured by roadside bombs, it said.

But animal welfare activists criticised the 'unethical' practice of causing 'massive mutilation and injury' to the pigs.

The research took place at the Government's secret military research laboratory Porton Down, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, between 2006 and 2009.

Official figures reveal 25 pigs were used in improvised explosive device experiments in 2006, 19 in 2007, 40 in 2008, and 35 in 2009. The animals are anaesthetised before the explosions.

The breed of pigs used in the experiments have skin similar to humans.

Scientists say the tests allow them to see injuries consistent with those inflicted by the Taliban on the battlefield and devise more effective post-traumatic techniques.

The MoD also wraps pigs in materials used to make body armour, such as Kevlar, to determine how effective it is at reducing damage from IEDs.

I honestly pissed myself laughing at the thought of pigs being blown up wearing armour.

I heard that America Special Forces use pigs as target practice, then patch them back together for the realistic field medic course, and lastly eat them to prepare for doing the same in real life.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

Don't believe anything they say about anaesthetic .... the stuff they use to do it isn't any good, if at all...

Actually, the laws in the US involving animals and anesthesia are stronger then those involving humans and anesthesia. I imagine they're different for you though. This fact is often brought up during death penalty debates, since there is a lower required dose for people then animals.

You know, as much as I love my dog.....raising her, and whatnot. Seeing her from mushy pup to concrete doberman...... I would volunteer her for such a job 100 times to save military lives. Civilian on the other hand, no. But I stand by that.
