Dear Sir or Madam,    I am writing today as a whistleblower to inform you of some serious animal rights violations at  the US Military’s Joint Special Operations Medical Training Center/Special Warfare Medical  Group. As a former student, I have witnessed, and been forced to do nothing about, these  abuses during Live Tissue Training.     The JSOMTC/SWMG purchases upwards of 3000 goats a year, at approximately $400  USD a head. These goats are used for live tissue training, meaning that they are deliberately  injured in order to provide realistic training to students. The goats are purchased through civilian  contractors in Virginia, herded, dozens at a time, into tiny trailers, and transported without food,  water, or space to lay down, to the JSOMTC in Fort Bragg, NC. On arrival, the goats are packed  into small corrals, and “inprocessed” by school students awaiting training. These students, with  no training or education, are forced to wrangle each frightened goat, inject them with several  syringes worth of antibiotics, weigh, and take a set of vital signs. These students have no prior  training in needle placement, medication and dose verification, or shot administration. They just  follow the example of the over­worked civilian staffers. Handfuls of needles and syringes are  passed around, and each goat gets an injection in the neck tissue.     During the hectic storm of inprocessing, sharps go missing, doses get wasted if the goat  moves during drug push, needles enter the vasculature and cause bleeding, and extreme pain  is caused to the animals during these sessions. When asked about it, one civilian member was  quoted as saying “They’re only goats, and they’ll be dead in a few days anyway.” This attitude is  very common among both the civilian and military staff in charge of the animal services and  shoot chambers.     After inprocessing, the goats are housed in small, indoor pens, with no fresh air or  sunlight. They are cramped, often dozens of animals in the same pen, fed twice a day, and  often left with no room to lie down. The pen floor is simply an open grate, to let feces and urine  pass through to a “catch room” below. The grates are washed down twice a day with pressure  hoses while the goats are still in the pen, soaking the goats, causing panic and, occasionally,  injury to the animals. Their waste, meanwhile, simply accumulates in an underground concrete  box, which drains into a single, easily clogged outlet. The ventilation units force a lot of air  movement through the catch room, at a much higher pressure than the upstairs fans can  deliver, causing a constant flow of humid, feces­laden air to circulate through the goat pens.  This causes respiratory distress and occasionally pulmonary disease in the goats, as well as the  students who get put on pen wash detail.     When the time finally comes around for the goats to be used for training, another troop of  barely­trained students comes by the pens to wrangle their assigned goats. They grab individual  caprines, stab them with sedatives, and wait for them to pass out, with the more conscious  animals trampling the sedated goats in their panic, causing more injuries. After the goats are  more­or­less unconscious, the students are made to grab or drag by whatever horns or limbs  are available, and haul the animals off to the shear room, where the fur is shaved off to provide  a more “human” type feel during wounding and treatment. They are then dragged back to the  pens until wounding time comes. As they wait, the animals, freshly shorn, and often still wet  from the pen spraydown, reach borderline hypothermia. “Doesn’t matter, they’re about to get put  under and die anyway,” was the comment by one staffer when a student pointed out that the  goats appeared to be in extreme discomfort from the cold.     When their number finally comes up for wounding, the goats are put through the same  process of sedation again, with doses often coming up short or not being fully delivered in the  right locations for effective anesthetic or sedation. These mistakes are brushed over by the staff  and military cadre. As long as the caprines aren’t actively thrashing about, and the  documentation shows that the appropriate dose was delivered, nothing else matters. The  caprines get dragged off to the wounding areas in preparation for training, able to feel pain or  no.     The wounding area is by far the most egregious abuse and violation of animal rights  during this whole process. The documentation and powerpoint presentations that are brought  out to show VIPs and observer personnel show a very methodical and humane practice of full  sedation, careful wounding, and respectful treatment of the caprines throughout the whole  process. In practice, and when there are no VIP or command tours happening, the animals are  severely mistreated, being dragged, kicked, shot,  blown up, hacked to pieces, or simply  stabbed with scalpels in key places. There are certain injury sets which have been vetted by an  external body as being acceptable, but the implementation is totally up to the individual  providing the wound. For instance, an individual instructor was given a wound set for his  particular animal, involving an abdominal evisceration and a minor wound on the leg. After  completing the cut on the leg with a rusty scalpel, the instructor decided that he wanted a more  graphic injury to the abdomen. So, after performing the incision and pulling some parts of bowel  out of the goats abdomen with an ungloved hand, he taped an artillery simulator grenade to the  abdomen, “Just for fun”.  A rusty, blood­covered axe is used for traumatic limb amputation, and  two instructors were seen comparing how far they could get the hoof to fly away from the patient  model. For facial lacerations, one instructor makes a habit of stepping on the goats lower jaw as  he hacks away at the upper, just to ensure that the semi­conscious patients don’t move. When a  student pointed out that the patient legs were drawing up in pain, or the patient was moving its  head, the instructor just replied that the patient was going to bleed out anyway, and that the  student should be focused on not ****ing up his training run.  This is just a very small sample of  the abuses seen by one individual during one course and a refresher course at JSOMTC. The  amount of disrespect and pain caused to the goats is just astounding. When there are no  observers present, that is.    When VIP tours or observer groups come through, all the unprofessionalism is gone.  The extra goats are dealt with swiftly, leaving just a few happy goats munching away at their  ample food in their spotless, uncrowded pens. The barn staff perform a careful and methodical  takedown of the patients, using proper aseptic technique, with meticulously calculated sedatives  to ensure that the caprines are entirely sedated and feel nothing. The wounding is equally  careful, with precisely placed injuries, constant checking on patient sedation, and total  professional demeanor. The folding lawn chairs are gone, the cadre stand close watch over  aseptic technique, ensuring total respect and care is taken to treat the animals appropriately,  through wounding and into the incinerator after the clinics are over. And as soon as the tour  leaves, though, everything goes right back to the way it was before, with rampant abuse of the  caprines and total disregard for their pain level.    I have done my research, attempted to report violations of animal rights using the chain  of command, and even contacted the senior officers in command of the program. All complaints,  from myself and others, have been swept under the rug,  and nothing has changed. I have been  shown pages and pages of documentation and manuals, all providing a very humane and  well­structured program, with thorough oversight. In reality, however, the actual treatment of the  caprine patient models is total abuse.     Thousands of goats are systematically put through extreme discomfort and pain,  mistreated, and brutally killed at JSOMTC/SWMG every year, all in the name of training, while  dozens of computer­equipped, state­of­the­art human mannequins sit collecting dust in a  warehouse just next door. The Live Tissue Training program needlessly wastes thousands of  lives, when technology has reached a point where it is rendered all but obsolete. As someone  who has been through the program and seen these abuses first hand,  I urge you strongly to do  your research, contact your representatives, bring attention to these abuses, and put an end to  this program.      Signed: A Concerned Whistle Blower
