Science teacher fed puppy to snapping turtle

Science teacher fed puppy to snapping turtle

In a shocking act of cruelty, a science teacher at Preston Junior High in Idaho reportedly fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students.

Another parent, Julie Johnson, called Crosland "the best science teacher Preston Junior High has".

However, some students did witness the incident, the outlet confirmed, although it was unclear how many were present. In a news release, Preston School District 201 Superintendent Marc Gee says his administration became aware of "a regrettable circumstance involving some of the biological specimens" on March 7.

"Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal", she continued.

This district also said "the event occurred well after students had been dismissed and was not a part of any school directed program", but deputies that spoke to FOX13 said it happened in front of students. At no time during the incident was the safety of students or staff at compromised, the district says. Crosland has not been cited or charged and has not been placed on leave, Gee said.

The school district released a statement explaining that they were attempting to determine the best course of action.

We understand that the case has been forwarded to the prosecutor's office for a review of potential criminal charges, and TeachKind-PETA's humane education division-is urging the school district to take this incident just as seriously.

Three former students told reporters that Crosland had conducted in-class feedings in the past, using guinea pigs as offerings for both snakes and snapping turtles.

"He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life", one former student told East Idaho News. However, Gee has said the board does not want to overlook his years of service.

"In a prepared statement, school district officials said the teacher has, ".shown care, effort and passion on the job for years".

According to reports from EastIdahoNews.com, the teacher is accused of feeding a puppy to a snapping turtle. "It is sick. It is sick", Parrish said.

"If it was a deformed puppy and it was going to die anyway, it's very much the circle of life", said parent Annette Salvesen.

Parish was the one who alerted the police after a teacher from the school informed her of the incident.

Look in all honesty I'm sure he was a cool guy but this is one of those things which are hard to forget, you know?
