Students are fed moose droppings on school trip while principal stands by and does nothing

A 14-year-old girl was tricked into eating  moose droppings during a school canoeing trip while teachers, including the  principal, stood by and laughed.

The girl, Brook, and a 13-year-old boy, both  from Walter Whyte School in Grand Marais, Canada, were given the droppings by an  adult chaperone from a sandwich bag and told they were chocolate covered  almonds.

They ate the ‘snacks’ during the three-day  trip along the Mantario Trail as the principle, a teacher and a resource officer  watched on and did nothing to stop the disgusting prank.

Segments of the poo got caught in Brook’s  braces and she was forced to scrub her teeth with lake water.

The eighth-grader sobbed as she told CBC how kids pointed and laughed when she  put the droppings in her mouth, causing her to run crying to her tent.

A guidance counselor ignored her distress,  continuing with the torment by telling her the poop was nutritious because ‘all  they eat is grass’.

Brook said the other kids made fun of  her  and continued to tease her through text message after she refused to return to  the school.

‘I didn’t trust anyone,’ she said. ‘I  couldn’t talk to anyone. I thought I was going to get teased.’

The adult responsible for the appalling prank  apologised to Brook and said he didn’t realise it would upset her, but for Brook  the traumatic incident is still fresh in her mind.

She told the news channel she feels a slight  sense of relief at hearing that the principle will not be  returning to her  school in the fall, meaning that she can finally get on with enjoying her summer  break.

Karen Eyolfson, mother of the boy who was  also fed the droppings on the trip, said she is disgusted at what happened and  has since pulled her son out of the school.

‘How can we trust that our kids are going to  be in a safe, respectful environment that is conducive to learning?’ she said  to  thestar.com.

The 16 students on the canoe trip have been  offered private counseling by the school division.

‘First and foremost, the safety and  well-being of the children is the top priority,’ superintendent Scott Kwasnitza  told the Winniepeg Free  Press.
