Recently, an instructor at a South Korean boarding facility ate a live hamster in front of seven children, but don't worry! It was for their own good.

According to reports, the children were teasing the hamster nearly to death so, the 44 year-old Yu devoured the rodent to teach the children "how dear life is." As he told the Korean Times:

“While watching the hamsters die from teasing, I thought I should teach the children it was wrong to make light of life," he said.
