Mystery person brutally murders school rabbits

Date Posted: 2006-05-05

Tamagusuku Elementary School students came to school Friday and then had their fragile world shattered.

Thirteen rabbits they’d come to love, hug and play with were gone. The first and second grade children had been visiting the rabbits, whose needs were being ministered to by 5th and 6th graders. The older youngsters had catered to the rabbits’ needs all school year, feeding them carrots, cleaning the hutches, and learning the responsibilities of taking care of animals.

That changed Friday when they found a horrific scene. All 13 rabbits were dead in the school hutch. “Oh no, teacher, please help,” appealed one six-year-old. The teacher took three rabbits to a veterinarian, where it was discovered the rabbits’ chests had been crushed and ribs broken.

School officials say the rabbit hutch was never locked, but nothing had ever happened before. The schoolyard watchman says everything was okay the night before, and that he didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. The principal says “what a sad thing to happen. The children are crying and everyone is shocked.”

The school’s official statement is that “we don’t know why, and we don’t know who. We have no reason for such a scoundrel at our school.”
