Harding Charter Preparatory High School Students Use Dead Cats In Bizarre ‘Dance’ Video

Emilio Cogliani

Animal rights activists are blasting a top-ranked Oklahoma charter school after its students were seen on video using dead cats to act out dance moves, set to the jingle used in commercials for Meow Mix cat food.

The video, originally posted on Facebook but uploaded to YouTube Tuesday by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was filmed last year in a classroom at the Harding Charter Preparatory High School in Oklahoma City.

In the clip, students wearing white jackets hold up the feline corpses and move them in a synchronized routine to the music, while a student in front with another dead cat acts as conductor. No teacher is seen in the video, and it’s not clear whether a teacher played any role in producing it.

WARNING: The video above may be disturbing to some viewers.

PETA said the cats were intended for dissection as part of classroom…

Overhunting Threatens the Future of Dolphins in the Solomon Islands | Care2 Causes

Life or Lunch?

3140224.largeWhile dolphin drives taking place in Taiji every year have gained international attention and opposition, researchers are shedding light on how drive hunts taking place in other parts of the world are threatening the future of cetaceans.

For a study just published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, researchers looked to the Solomon Islands where hunting dolphins has a long tradition. According to the study, between 1976 and 2013, more than 15,000 dolphins were killed by just one village.

Dolphins are killed for their meat, but the demand for their teeth, which are used to make jewelry used in wedding ceremonies or sold for cash, is also increasing the number of deaths. A single tooth is worth about 70 cents (USD), but their commercial value has increased five times in the last decade alone.
