A Texas high school is being targeted by the animal rights group PETA, or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, because of videos showing potentially controversial behavior.
KSAT is reporting that two videos posted to Snapchat feature what appear to be students at Winston Churchill High School in San Antonio using recently dissected cat intestines to jump rope in a classroom.

In fact, one of the clips includes the caption, "This is anatomy. Jump roping with cat intestines."
Aubrey Chancellor with the Northeast Independent School District has defended those involved, telling the San Antonio Express-Newsthat "This was not meant to be degrading or disrespectful. The idea of the lesson was to explore the tensile strength of the organs...."
However, PETA is using the incident to try and end animal dissections at the high school, calling it "cruelty to animals."
No one in or associated with the videos is expected to face disciplinary action, but the jump rope demonstration will be replaced going forward, according to KSAT.
