      *BACKGROUND: Bannock County (Idaho) Prosecutors have decided not to charge a teacher or his students with animal cruelty.

      On January 16, 2004, agricultural sciences teacher Gordon Gillman at Marsh Valley High School allegedly told students to kill a homeless cat who had been running loose in his classroom.

      The cat had destroyed a student's project and then, while being chased, ran into a wall and knocked himself/herself unconscious.

      One student stepped on the cat's neck, allegedly killing the cat instantly. The homeless cat had lived in a hole in the wall of the agricultural sciences classroom for several weeks before the incident.

      POCATELLO - Bannock County

      Prosecutors make a decision Wednesday regarding the cat-killing controversy at Marsh Valley High School.

      After a full investigation by the Bannock County Sheriff's Office, Prosecutors have decided not to charge a teacher or his students with animal cruelty.

      The stray cat had been living at the school for weeks.

      According to the Sheriff, it had bitten at least one student.

      The shop teacher at the school allegedly told students to kill the cat after it had run into a wall.

      One student stepped on it's neck, killing it instantly.

      Prosecutors say the evidence gathered does not indicate maliciousbehavior.
