We began the final dissection in Bio Lab tonight - fetal pigs. Makes me feel sorry for the little thing, but unfortunately I have to just get through it. One of my lab partners (we are dissecting in teams of 3-4 due to a lack of pigs) works with laboratory animals and is quite good at cutting, so Anne and I mostly just held the poor thing's feet and watched. I just want this semester to be over. :/

it makes me sick when we have to do stuff like this.

I'm a meat eater and have no problem killing an animal to eat it but I find just cutting them open to see inside pretty horrible.

Ive tried to block out my own experiences with dissection. *shivers*

I am having a hard time with it. The earthworm and the crayfish weren't so bad, but dissecting intelligent animals like pigs is pretty tragic.

I'm lucky to be on a team with someone who is very comfortable dissecting; she's done all the cutting this semester. Something that just occurred to me: I am taking Anatomy and Physiology in the Spring - is there dissection in the lab? What am I going to do without my cutter??

Oh, I don't know! I just did my one science class I needed. Hope you find a new cutter if you need one!
