Fire Teacher Who Snapped Rabbit’s Neck in Class


Target: Nampa School District Superintendent, David Peterson

Goal: Fire a teacher for snapping a rabbit’s neck in front of his students

A teacher in Idaho snapped the neck of a rabbit, skinned it, and chopped up its body in front of his 10th grade students, stating that he was showing how animals are processed for food. The teacher, whose name has not been released, has already come under fire for the demonstration, but the Nampa School District has so far not decided on any particular action against the teacher. Nampa School District spokeswoman Allison Westfall said that the demonstration is not part of the school’s curriculum.

While students were allowed to leave before the teacher snapped the rabbit’s neck, it is still a deplorable act to perform in front of a 10th grade class. Due to mounting pressure, the teacher has apologized to any students who were disturbed by his actions. At the very least, this teacher should have cleared it with school administrators and parents before attempting this lesson, but he probably did not because he knew it wouldn’t be approved. There are many other ways to teach how food gets on our table, but slaughtering an animal in front of 10th grade students is not the correct choice.

By slaughtering an animal in front of students, this teacher demonstrated a serious lack of judgment–not a commendable trait for those teaching children and teenagers. Please sign this petition and urge the Nampa School District to take firm action by firing this teacher.


Dear Superintendent Peterson,

One of your teachers recently killed and slaughtered a rabbit in front of his class of 10th graders. Such an act demonstrates a serious lack of judgement on the part of this teacher, and he should be immediately fired from your school.

While I fully understand that he was trying to demonstrate how food is processed, this is a very disturbing way to teach this lesson and he could have found many different ways to do so. Educational videos have been made for this reason and get the point across just as well, without any unnecessary and cruel animal slaughter.

Please keep the public informed on the proceedings of this investigation and repercussions and consider firing this teacher for his brutal lesson. We do not need someone with such poor judgment teaching young students.

      This is disgusting,cruel and I am horrified that this teacher has not yet been removed /fired. This has to be rectified

  6. Cet enseignant ne connait rien à la psychologie.Il faut le renvoyer prendre des cours car il en a grand besoin. Les élèves sont vraiment à plaindre et les parents devraient réagir….!!!

    • This teacher should be fired and made to go through a complete psychological exam.
      This could be a sign of a sociopath.
      Poor rabbit this is horrible. I have 2 rabbits at home that are pets. Rabbits are sentient beings Very sensitive and intelligent animals and this is just barbaric cruelty.

  7. OMG! This “teacher” doesn’t need to just be fired immediately but they need to lock he/she up for a long time! What a whack job!

  8. Maria Kakalioura says:

    what will happen in case he/she decides to demonstrate in class how surgeons perform oprn heart surgery? will he/she tear someone’s chest apart?
    ….to kill an animal in cold blood to show how animals are processed for food is a horrible act unworthy of anyone let alone a taecher and what was used as a justification for this act is at least as bad as the act itself

  9. That’s why I don’t eat rabbits.
