BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho biology teacher is facing possible disciplinary action after killing and skinning a rabbit in class to show students where their food comes from.
Nampa School District spokeswoman Allison Westfall says the teacher killed the rabbit in front of 16 students by snapping its neck on Nov. 6 at Columbia High School.
The rabbit was then skinned and cut up in front of the 10th graders.
Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I love trying to rationalize what freaks like this are thinking in the moment. Like, okay buddy, I get what you’re doing wanting to show these pretty boy, tech-generation tweens where their food comes from. This middle-aged Idaho mountaineer probably can’t stand that GrubHub has made its’ way to Boise. He’s on a mission to teach the young crop of silver-spoon cock-smooches to respect the carnivorous circle of life. I can respect that. But maybe next time just show a PBS video. Maybe an episode of Planet Earth? Those are always informative and well-produced.
On second thought, these kids are 10th graders in Idaho. They should have at least five years neck-snapping experience by now. Grow up, nerds.
