Teacher sentenced to 8 months for killing rabbits in class


Milan, November 28 - A Milan court on Wednesday
sentenced public school anatomy teacher Carlo Rando to eight
months in prison for the killing of two rabbits in a classroom
in 2010.
Italian animal rights association LAV filed a complaint
after students reported that during a dissection lesson Rando,
upon seeing that two of the four rabbits delivered to the school
were still alive, "brutally killed the animals himself" in front
of the class.
According to reports from LAV, the teacher "first tried to
strangle them, then repeatedly punched the animals, and then
after prolonged violence, smashed the rabbits' heads with a
hammer - all in front of a room full of children".
"The conviction sets an important legal precedent in the
educational field and is a move to guarantee pedagogical
ethics," said Michela Kuan, a biologist with LAV.
"Such uncivilized methods are not only ethically
unacceptable, but totally unnecessary. Anatomy is no longer
taught through dissecting animals, but through the widespread
availability of models, videos and interactive three-dimensional
reconstructions, which moreover simulate and explain the
organization of many species, not just one," Kuan said.
