Media Outlet Takes Animal Rights Group to Task

“Just who is the group protesting live animal training in Fargo,” asked KVLY in Fargo, North Dakota on April 6, 2017. In a report televised by the news outlet, Valley News questioned the animal rights group protesting lifesaving trauma training at North Dakota State University (NDSU).

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has sought to end such training and education at NDSU because it involved the use of animals. PCRM even erected a billboard questioning NDSU’s use of pigs for these programs just last year. KVLY asked the question, “who is the PCRM,” and investigated whether PCRM practices “responsible medicine.” According to the news report, PCRM promoted the use of the Heimlich maneuver as a way to save drowning victims, something the American Heart Association notes as “unnecessary and potentially dangerous.”
