Teacher, students allegedly drown raccoons during class

OCALA, FL-An investigation is underway after a teacher at a Florida high school was accused of drowning wild animals in a garbage can while students watched and assisted, CBS Orlando affiliate WKMG reports. The mother of the student who shot the video, both who wish to remain anonymous, said to a reporter at WKMG-TV, "It made me sick".

A Forest Hill Excessive Faculty dad or mum informed FOX51 that her son took pictures of the harrowing acts with the animals.

"They finally took the cage out of the water, and they trapped it into another smaller cage, where the top of the cage would go down into the water", he said. 'It made me sick to my stomach'.

Video filmed by a student at Forest High School in Ocala, obtained by local outlet WFTV, shows other students filling a large bin with water and lowering a raccoon inside a metal wire cage, later keeping it submerged.

"One of the raccoons ate a chicken that they were raising so the teacher pinned the raccoons", a parent said.

"For all you that don't know the man he is such a great person as one of his students I can personally at that he has gone above and beyond for not only me but to anyone that has ever come up to him and asked for his help".

Maier said the school district is "appalled" by the actions of the teacher.

"We received statements that the teacher drowned multiple animals in front of students, and with student participation, because the animals were nuisance animals to the ag program at the school", school district spokesman Kevin Christian told the newspaper.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Fee launched an investigation after dad and mom notified the company, in line with FOX51.

A Florida trainer was being investigated after dad and mom mentioned he had college students take part within the drowning of raccoons and chickens Monday.

The FFWCC will present its findings to the state attorney's office, which will then determine whether Brewton will face criminal charges.

She said her child came home in tears and was yelling and angry over what happened to the animals.

'He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school'.
