Moscow State Ag Academy Halts Animal Dissections

Looks like now they will find alternatives to cutting up animals.

"Computer programs and videos of professionally carried-out experiments on different animal species will help us avoid problems with students who refuse to experiment on animals for ethical reasons," TASS reported Tatiana Blokhin, a representative of the academy, as saying.

However, a representative of InterNICHE told The Moscow News that the agricultural academy seemed to be drawn to their products and software "more for pedagogic and economic reasons than concerns about animal rights."
