Oliver Stone - Oliver Stone Fronts Hard-hitting Army Animal Cruelty Video

Moviemaker Oliver Stone has stepped in front of the camera to urge U.S. Army chiefs to reconsider plans to purchase thousands of goats for use in deadly training drills at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Stone, an Army veteran, has joined animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in a campaign to halt the U.S. military's "archaic training exercises", in which animals are shot at, stabbed and hacked apart.
And in response to a new U.S. Army announcement that it is looking to purchase as many as 3,600 goats for Fort Bragg drills, Stone is fronting a new Peta video, which features an expose on what happens to Army animals.
The Platoon director and Peta activists are calling on officials at the Department of Defense to replace animal exercises with lifelike human simulators that are already in use at other military bases.
In the video, obtained by WENN, Stone says, "As a veteran, I believe that those who are willing to fight for our country need the best possible training. Giving them a goat who was dismembered with hedge trimmers is not it.
"In the 21st century, there are more humane and effective ways to train service members than violently dismembering live animals."
