According to school district spokesperson Allison Westfall, the rabbit was placed in a restraining device before the teacher snapped its neck, after which it was skinned and "cut up."
The part-time teacher was not identified. He is also a farmer. The demonstration was intended to show the 10th grade students how foot gets to the table.
But Nampa School District officials said they were not aware that an animal was going to be killed in class.
The teacher apparently provided the bunny dismantling tutorial at the insistence of his class. "The students had asked," said Westfall.
