Ocala teacher accused of drowning raccoons during class

The teacher then caught raccoons in cages, "took the cages, filled up large trash cans full of water, and had the children drown the raccoons in the cages inside the water, inside the trash cans", she said. The student said the teacher told them not to record the incident, according to the station.

"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".

This act of the teacher of agriculture Dewey Bruton from Florida caused a wave of indignation.

The teacher of the agriculture class was placed on paid leave Tuesday.

'While law enforcement tells us the teacher did not do anything illegal, his actions before students are certainly questionable, ' a spokesperson told WKMG. The district further stated that regardless of the outcomes of the investigations, Superintendent Dr. Heidi Maier is recommending that the teacher be fired.

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

"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", he added, reported Ocala.

'We would like to say that we are 100 percent behind our adviser and everything he does for our children/students, ' the statement, posted on Facebook, reads. "This is a man who would give everything he had to make sure that his children/students are taken care of". "He is a man of faith and has always provided the wisdom and guidance needed for his students to succeed". "He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school".

But the mother of the student who filmed the incident remains unconvinced that the raccoons were handled in the appropriate manner. "It's disgusting, and I can't believe it happened at school", she told Fox 35. The students gathered around the bin to watch, and assist, as the penned animals drowned.
