Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-12-26]: An Idaho high school teacher under fire for killing and skinning a rabbit in front of his students to demonstrate how animals are processed for food has apologized to children disturbed by the incident, a school official said on Friday.
The part-time teacher is a farmer who raises rabbits and other livestock for food and was asked to provide a lesson on animal slaughter and processing by students in a 10th-grade biology class he taught at a high school in the Nampa School District near Boise, said district spokeswoman Allison Westfall. School administrators were not consulted about the demonstration, which happened last week but came to light in recent days after a parent called the district to complain, Westfall said. 
We are afraid of death.
We are afraid of our food.
We do not want to know.
We do not want to die.
We do not want to live.
Afraid little people.
Eats your steaks...
