Who Steals From Disabled Kids?

I was very saddened to read about the animals stolen from the Echuca Specialist School’s premises. The theft has almost certainly forced the school to scrap a program involving animals.

Eight chickens and two ducks were stolen from the Echuca Specialist School’s kitchen garden in two separate incidents.

Three of the chickens have been recovered, but one was found dead.

Principal Christine Wakefield says the school can no longer keep animals on site.

“[It’s] very disappointing because it’s good for the kids’ learning to have these experiences with animals,” she said.

“If we can’t keep animals on the grounds without them getting injured or stolen, we’ve really got to change our programs, unfortunately.”

Ms Wakefield talked of the effect these callous robberies were having on her students:

“One of our girls in particular just loves them and she knew exactly which ones were missing and I think they’ve named some of them as well.”

How much of a lowlife do you have to be, to repeatedly deprive disabled students from enjoying the experience of having animals at school?  What satisfaction could one ever take in doing such a heinous crime?

I hope the school set up hidden surveillance and catches the scumbags.
