Live Black Bunny Fed to a Christian School

Live Black Bunny Fed to a Christian School

(05:10) At Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Florida, May of 2007, this teacher demonstrates the killing capability of a captive snake against a small black bunny. We hear the children laughing as the rabbit extends his claws as he fights to survive. But the snake wins in the end. Do the children who watch and laugh win? Or is this one more time that human "entertainment" compromises compassion?

A local newspaper reported on this ending the article with: "some argue that what the students witnessed in the school's classroom was just nature at work."

In investigating the issue of captive snakes, we discovered that most "pet snake experts" recommend AGAINST feeding live animals to the snakes. They recommend purchasing frozen rabbits, mice and/or rats, thawing them out and then feeding the snakes in order to protect the snakes from the claws, teeth and beaks of terrified, thrashing animals as they are suffocated and devoured.

Our conclusion? Feeding live animals to "pet" snakes" is pure sadistic entertainment and has nothing to do with natural food needs of the snakes.

There is no more concern for the animals used for food than there is for the "pet" snake.

How many animals are bred, reared, slaughtered and fed to imprisoned "pet" snakes? The whole thing is just nasty and mean.
