Today in Biology, my teacher decided to feed her two snakes. I don’t see this as a problem. But then she told everyone how she feed them.
She puts the rats in a garbage bag and then slams them against a hard surface to stun them, then she puts them in the feeding cage while the rats were dazed and the snake attacked them, ect.
Well when she started the feeding process, I broke into tears even though I have a phobia of rats.
After the whole thing was over with, I was still crying, my teacher pretty much yelled at me in front of everyone. She told me that the circle of life caused it, ect.
Everyone called me a drama queen and I got made fun of all day. I don’t really care about that, but I still don’t think the whole feeding process is fair to the rats.
ugh. this is one of the reasons I’m so glad I was on home instruction for the year I was taking biology. I would have flipped out if that had happened to me. I definitely agree with all of the others’ comments though. You should tell your guidance counselor or your principal, because she shouldn’t be allowed to do that without first making sure that it won’t effect anyone in the class, and she especially shouldn’t be making fun of you for your views.
@whiskey okay, why would you want to be here if you don’t like what Peta stands for? You didn’t have to sign up, and you know what, this is a place for support so please take your bitchy comments out of here., I’m not going to take shit for caring about an innocent rat.
First of all, why the fuck was she calling you out and making you feel bad? That’s completley insensitive, not to mention a form of bullying. . .so you could get your teacher in some serious trouble. Talk to her. Tell her how it made you feel and maybe see if next time she decides to feed her snakes in class, see if you can wait in the hallway. There are better ways to do things, and slamming those rats into something like that was cruel, insensitive, and sure as hell wasn’t one of the better things to do. And @whiskey I would like to point out that, yes snakes do eat rodents in nature. . .but in nature no one’s slamming them against a hard surface and making you watch. Stay strong honey. You’ve got your heart in the right place, and fuck anyone who tells you different!
