Egyptian vet school exposed for vicious cruelty to animals [graphic videos]

Cairo University Veterinary School The Society for the Protection of Animals in Cairo is suing the Veterinary Universities of Egypt for animal brutality, while circulating an online petition at Change.org (link here) to pressure the school to cease and desist.

The petition was originally created after horrific videos were posted on YouTube showing a baby donkey being electrocuted and dogs being tied up and beaten, then abused again before experimentation began.

It reopened after a grainy image (above) appeared on social networks showing a roomful of dead donkeys connected by tubes to a series of mysterious tanks.

How could no “official someone”  not notice this happening in a school?

The atrocities occurred in the Veterinary College of Cairo, according to information posted on YouTube.

Below you will see a donkey being electrocuted, but be warned, viewer discretion is advised. There is no explanation as to why the torture occurred.

In this other disturbing video, dogs are being beaten to death. If you can’t handle watching, listen to the pleading cries of the dogs and the laughter of the men in the background as the beatings are delivered.

Moved to take some armchair action? Join the nearly 19,000 supporters who are working to halt the abuse and demand a humane and merciful Veterinary College.

Teach your children to be active agents for change: in addition to writing to Santa, help them write to the school too.

Sign and share the petition (found here).

Write a complaint on the school faculty’s Facebook page (found here).

Write a polite email expressing your concern to Dean, Professor Dr. Fathy Farouk (link here).

Join the activists’ Facebook group to stay informed (link here).

In fairness, Dr. Farouk did post a strong statement on the petition site, which is repeated on the University’s home page, saying that the faculty condemns the acts and pinning them on contract workers.

He asserts that no students or faculty staff were involved in the abuse and that the faculty seeks to punish those responsible.

What’s absent is a powerful plan to prevent future atrocities and protect the animals these future veterinarians ostensibly aim to serve.

    I was going to visit your counry but after seeing this video I was so shocked that I cancelled. Thanks to the Cairo Animal Protection society for doing what is obviously a very hard job.

    This beggars belief. Abuse and torture where you expect it least. THANK YOU to the Society for Protection of Animals, and other fine rescue groups in Egypt, for standing up to this. I put my voice behind yours, to demand change in this Veterinary School and the sacking of those responsible.

    This massacre goes against everything veterinaries stand for. This shames Egypt and thank you to The Society of Protection of Animals in Cairo for bringing this unspeakable cruelty to the media.

    What is wrong with men? And they think that they are superior to women. Please everyone write and keep writing. It is the only help the animals will get. My heart is seething and broken.

    Just as humans take an oath to “do no harm” to their patients, so there is an oath for veterinarians to treat animals with respect and sensitivity to their suffering. That makes the horrendous cruelty in the veterinary school all the more concerning. The conduct is contrary to the strictures of Islam that require humane treatment of animals.A veterinarian trained under these conditions and who is participating in this cruelty should be kept far away from animals. The cruelty this veterinary school provides to teach young doctors, probably explains the horrible conditions in Egypt’s slaughterhouses and laboratories as well as the incompetent and unethical care provided in private veterinary clinics.
