[UPDATED with PETA Virtual Dissection Bid:] Anti-Vivisection Group Demands Facebook Remove Harbor High Students' Dead Cat Photos

See update at end of this post about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) offering to donate "virtual dissection equipment" to Newport-Mesa schools.

ORIGINAL POST, JULY 3, 2:15 P.M.: The nonprofit pressuring Newport-Mesa Unified School District officials to intervene to stop Newport Harbor High School students from posting Facebook photos of themselves playing with dead cats has now turned to the social network for help. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) also emailed the Weekly a sampling of what are alleged to be these very disturbing photos, which you'll find after the jump with this strict warning: you may lose your appetite or, if you've already eaten, your lunch.

Some photos came from this December Facebook post:

Human faces are blurred in the following Facebook close-ups to protect possible minors. They are being presented in order of best to worst to stomach (in my humble opinion), with page breaks in between in case anyone wants to bail before scrolling down farther.
