    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law...-1226886057054

    the only positive thing in this story is the kind gesture by the local shelter to replace the pets. very sad story

    A perfect example of why pets should not be housed outdoors. I think the shelter is making a mistake by replacing them and placing more animals at risk.

    You do make a good point about the free range outdoor housing, and hopefully they will learn from this incident. I don't think the shelter (if it's the one I think it is) would give them animals to continue free ranging them. They probably gave them a whole bunch of info and got them in touch with someone who could help them with the housing situation.
    The kindergartens ignorance on the subject of caring for piggies and buns is sad, but I think the bigger issue/ concerning matter is that there are people out there (who obviously have deeper issues) killing defenseless animals for no reason.

    Might be an early sign for a greater need for youth activities or mental health intervention.

    Obviously a better hutch/cage and housing them indoors or at home overnight would be a good protective measure though

    This is really depressing. I always get super sad at seeing animal cruelty in any case. This kind of brought tears to my eyes. Its not fair to kill a breathing being who can't defend themselves. I hope whoever killed these poor babies dies a bloody, painful death.

    Guinea pigs shouldn't even be housed outdoors at all. Bunnies usually are, but piggies can't handle temperatures very well. Its really sad that this happened, i agree. And its very true that they shouldn't be housed outdoors

    How can people even do this to these poor animals? I just can't imagine what goes through their brain before, during, and after the attack

    Absolutely, why would the shelter put two more animals at risk, if that school has such creeps (uncaught, unidentified, and possibly giving other creeps "ideas"). I personally don't think "classroom pets" in or out of the classroom are a good idea at all. There are too many children out there whose parents don't teach them the right way to relate to animals.

    people like this are likely repeat offenders and will harm more and bigger animals over time. i hope the police takes it seriously
