School officials release statement into investigation of 'nuisance' animal deaths

School officials release statement into investigation of 'nuisance' animal deaths

The superintendent of Marion County Public Schools is recommending that a teacher accused of drowning two raccoons in front of students be terminated.

A high school teacher in Ocala, Florida, has been put on paid administrative leave after a student claimed he forced pupils to help drown two raccoons and an opossum during class and shared video of the incident.

It's unclear if the incident involved any criminal acts, but law enforcement officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are also investigating.

"We obtained statements that the trainer drowned a number of animals in entrance of scholars, and with scholar participation, as a result of the animals had been nuisance animals to the [agriculture] program on the college", Marion County Faculty District spokesman Kevin Christian informed the Star-Banner.

The mother said that Brewton made a decision to kill the raccoons because it ate a chicken that the class had been raising.

The mother said Brewton, who has worked at the school since 2006, "pinned" the raccoons and caught them in cages before he "had the children drown" them.

Brewton was placed on administrative leave on Tuesday and the incident is being investigated by Marion County Public School officials. 'It made me sick to my stomach'.

The student said the teacher told them not to record the incident, according to the station.

Pictures and videos, which were first released by WKMG-Channel 6 news in Orlando, showed the sickening sight of a raccoon tied in a metal wire as the students lowered it into the bin filled with water. "They should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the animals", the mother commented.

The teacher, who remains unidentified, has been defended by the Facebook page for the school's Future Farmers of America alumni.

"We would like to say that we are 100% behind our adviser and everything he does for our children/students". He has always gone above and beyond his call of duty to ensure that his students had everything they needed'. "He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school". "We want people to know he had them in cages, he had them trapped. Mr. Brewton was one of the greatest men I know and I looked up to him and I will aways look up to him he is a great man". "Raccoons are not cute little furry creatures. They can be rabid and you can be overrun with them in a short time".
