Teacher Sprays Students With Insecticide

According to a Mainichi Daily News report, a teacher recently accompanying a group of elementary school girls on a long distance run sprayed them with industrial-strength insecticide. The 60-year old teacher in Asahikawa, Hokkaido was carrying the spray to ward off bees, which have been known to attack children in similar situations in the past. During a rest period, he sprayed the six girls on their hair and chests. They were not seriously hurt but complained of irritated eyes, noses and throats. The teacher was quoted as saying "They were so cute, I did it to them as a joke." He has been told to stay home for three days.
