Minnesota Gym Teacher on Leave After Killing Gopher During Archery Class

Long time readers of BadJocks will remember a story from years ago about a high school wrestling coach who tried to motivate his time by biting the head off a live sparrow. He later claimed it was just “innocent fun” and really no big deal because sparrows on his family farm were as “common as rats.”  Surprisingly, that didn’t help.

This time we have a gym teacher in Minnesota who was teaching his students the finer points of archery when a gopher popped out of his hole near the firing line. You guessed it: he shot and the gopher fell.  We’re sure some kids cheered, but not everyone thought it was proper hunting technique and now the unnamed 36-yeard-old teacher at Big Lake High School is on paid leave when the school investigates.
