Wadena-Deer Creek High School students in Sheri Nyhus's biology class, (from left) Matt Paulson, Ashley Luukinen and Jacob Ludovissie, recently dissected fetal pigs, where they examined in detail their external and internal anatomy. Many aspects of a pig's structural and functional organization are almost identical to those of humans, which according to Nyhus, gives students an excellent education in relating to human anatomy. Furthermore, state education standards encourages hands-on lab exercises like this for student learning. (Note: the fetuses used in biology were salvaged from pregnant sows being slaughtered for food. They are not raised specifically for dissection purposes.)
