Virginia School Removes ‘Blood and Guts’ Website

students in blood and guts courseIn the aptly named “Blood and Guts” class at the Governor’s School for gifted students at Lynchburg College in Virginia, students photographed themselves mugging with animal organs, posing with pig fetuses, and pretending to eat animal intestines. The class’s website displayed the photos and explained that over the entirety of the course, students dissected a wide range of animals, including sharks, snakes, turtles, frogs, mink, and pigeons. PCRM biologist Jonathan Balcombe, Ph.D., contacted the  school to express concern about the course, and the website was immediately taken down. The next step, we hope, will be the introduction of alternatives to dissection.
