Schoolmistress burns hamster

TEHRAN, May 8 (AFP) - Iran's animal protection society has filed a complaint with the education ministry, demanding a school headmistress get the sack after she burnt a hamster alive in front of her young students.

"This act was surely committed in a temporary state of insanity but it concerns our citizens, who must wonder what kind of hands they have placed their children," it said, cited by the Kayhan paper Tuesday.

The society also requested that state teachers be required to undergo psychological testing.

The head apparently flew into a rage when she discovered the hamster, which had been given to a student by a teacher, and swiftly immolated the unlucky creature in front of her young charges in the school playground.
