A Florida
teacher is currently being investigated after reports that he has been drowning
raccoons with his students.

‘Torture’

According
to students, parents, and video,
The Forest High School teacher enlisted his class’ help
in killing two raccoons and one opossum in a large garbage can.

Pictures
and video submitted by one upset teen show a raccoon trapped in a metal cage,
being held under water by students – an act which his mother described as ‘torture’.

The teacher reportedly claimed the raccoons were killing the class’ chickens,
but drowned the opossum just for ‘sport’.

‘Questionable’ actions

The school’s
superintendent Heidi Maier has said the teacher should be fired.

Another school
representative said that while the his actions were not illegal, they
were certainly ‘questionable’.

‘Sick’

The mother
of the student who submitted the video said its contents make her ‘sick’ and
that she doesn’t ‘think that’s the way to treat any animal’.

She added: “They
should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the
animals.”
