What do you think should happen when a chaperone on an 8th grade canoeing trip tricks two students into eating moose poop and the principal and teachers don’t do anything about it? According to the New York Daily News, the principal has been removed from his position and the teachers have been punished.
In Grand Marais, Manitoba, Canada, Principal Bob Kovachik and two other teacher stood by when one of the parents told the student that the moose poop was chocolate covered almonds. All three laughed along with the other students when the victims found out what they were eating.
Karen Eyolfson, whose 13-year-old son was one of the students who ate the poop said,
“They thought it was a big joke,”
She has since pulled her son out of the school
“Brook” another student who ate the droppings said,
“I put it in my mouth and I took a bite out of it. And then everyone laughed. Everyone laughed at me and made fun of me. So I went up to my tent and started crying.”
Schools Superintendent Scott Kwasnitza admitted to the Toronto Star that the practical joke was and “ill-conceived practical joke,” and that it was a “grievous error and the person who initiated it has expressed deep regret and remorse.”
“Brook” said that the apology is basically meaningless to her,
“I didn’t trust anyone,” she said. “I couldn’t talk to anyone. I thought I was going to get teased. And I still got teased through text messages.”
