Veterinary-medicine students at Rakuno Gakuen University in Japan practice exsanguination, a cruel and outdated form of slaughter, as part of their training. In this barbaric process, cows are drugged with muscle relaxants or sedatives but no anesthetics to immobilize them for gruesome anatomy trainings. Students cut the animals' neck, then pull out their jugular vein. The cows die slowly as the blood is drained from their body while they are still conscious. Five hundred cows a year are killed in this way at this university alone a place where students should be learning to care about and respect animals.

Protests from animal rights organizations and the student body have been ignored.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
