Wool saves frogs from dissection?

Oh, where were these when I took my Biology classes? I always hated torturing and killing these guys. Of course, neurological and other experiments might have been a little....um....flawed, but no guilt!

This reminded me of my "Free the Lab Frogs" caper.....

Hi Lady!

May I be so bold to ask you what was your 'Free the Lab Frogs" caper!?

Lady-in-Gray said...

Aw, Sawsee, use your imagination....
>:-D

It was a long, long time ago. I don't remember the details but it was a group effort. A tankful of frogs left the lab in pockets, purses, gym bags, whatever...

Lady! A victory for the frogs! Good karma for you!

Yay Lady!

I'm all for science and disection is a neccessary tool in both the learning and application of biology, but I too feel the sting of guilt at ending a froggy existence.

We only had to disect mice that were already dead in my high school.

over my educational years, i dissected 3 cats, and that stunk (literally and figuratively). nothing like going home and knowing what your cat looks like on the inside. :(
