According to the animal rights group, this dissection practice in high schools and college science classes is harming the ecosystem.
The nonprofit organization stated in a press release:
"Every year, more than 10 million animals are dissected in secondary school and college science classes. Most of them come from biological supply houses that sell cats obtained from animal shelters, fetal piglets cut from the wombs of pigs killed in slaughterhouses, and frogs who are taken from the wild—a practice that wreaks havoc on local ecosystems. Studies have repeatedly shown that virtual dissection is more effective in teaching biology than cutting up dead animals."
