They need to show young people what it looks like when a human is killed by a gun. 1300 child/teen gun murders every year in the USA. They expect some video game, or action movie, effect.
ANY pet can return affections and love humans, me & that class snake got along really well & I swear he had a preference for me & one of my friends. I know corn snakes are easy animals to care for, but he actually came to us and his movement increased, like an excited slither.
Even the feed rodents (mice, rats, etc) are capable of bonding to people, you just have to resist that as the feeder of the carnivore. Doesn't do the food server any good to have the meal become a friend, and the other companion risks going hungry because of it.

Your making a bad argument just to argue.
Humane treatment of everything is what makes us civilized. Even though a few a fd up in the head like this teacher.
The old hick argument of "oh that's just nature" when their dog gets eaten by mountain lions, is not nature, it's straight up bad owners and laziness.
