From Montgomery Blair High School’s on line newspaper:
Dan James, vice president of business development at Carolina Biological Supply Company, which provides Blair with cats, says that efforts to stop dissection would not mean more cats are saved. "We get the cats from animal shelters in Mexico, already dead or the ones that they are going to put to sleep," says James. "It's not like any fewer animals are going to be killed if we stopped providing cats."
Carolina spokesperson Keither Barker lied to me last July 10 when he said all cat cadavers sold by Carolina Biological were received already euthanized approved animal shelters. He specifically denied they were received alive from Mexico or elsewhere and killed at Carolina Facilities for dissection.
