Following the public outcry after PETA released a video showing students at Oklahoma City’s top-ranked Harding Charter Preparatory High School playing the jingle from Meow Mix cat commercials and dancing with dead cats slated to be dissected in their anatomy class, the school announced its compassionate decision to suspend its cat dissection program.

A statement posted on the school’s website reads, “We are suspending our cat dissection program indefinitely, pending further research into possible options for the best educational opportunities for our students.”

PETA’s staff biology education expert has offered to demonstrate some of the superior and humane non-animal teaching methods available—such as virtual dissection software—and we have offered to pay for the school’s switch.

35,000 people urged Harding to end cat dissection by sending e-mails through PETA’s website.
