OKLAHOMA CITY -

A video showing a group of Oklahoma City anatomy students making cat corpses “dance” to music has sparked controversy online.

The Daily Mail reported that the students are from the Harding Charter Preparatory High School in Oklahoma City, which is ranked number one in Oklahoma and 23 in the U.S.A.

In the video, obtained by the Daily Mail, the students can be seen laughing as they stand in a row with the cats, meant to be dissected in their anatomy class, then wave them side to side to the 'Meow Mix' cat food commercial song. One student stands before the other eight and can be seen "directing" the macabre routine with another dead cat.

At the end of the video, the student director holds up a sign that reads, “Piccolo and the Pussycats.” The video was uploaded to Facebook by one of the students, who also tagged three other students and “Leslie Piccolo,” in the post.

According to the school's website, Leslie Piccolo is the name of a science teacher at the school, but it is unclear whether she was present at the time the video was recorded, believed to be last school year.

Animal rights group PETA, which discovered the video, said the school has refused to respond to repeated complaints.
