Superintendent recommends terminating Forest High teacher for drowning raccoons

Florida high school teacher under investigation after shocking video emerges of him drowning wild raccoons in a large bin in front of his students during class

He said it took several minutes for the raccoons, which were caged, to die after they were submerged in water.

A Florida High School teacher is on administrative leave after a student recorded a classroom activity that made his mother "sick to her stomach". So they trapped the animals, and then placed the trapped animals inside a garbage bin filled with water. The raccoons were apparently caught by the agriculture teacher. "It made me sick to my stomach", said the mother, who asked to remain anonymous. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the mother, who did not want to be identified, told WKMG.

"My son stood within the background, hid his telephone and watched as they stuffed these trash cans filled with water, and held these raccoons down in trash cans within the cages", the dad or mum informed the station.

She claims the raccoons were held down with metal rods when they tried to come up for air.

"My friend said that the class before that, they were [putting] the water in the buckets", the student said, adding that some of her classmates had nightmares following the ordeal.

As one of the students recorded cell phone video, Brewton and the students plunged them into the water and sprayed them with a hose to kill them.

Mr Brewton was placed on administrative leave while investigations are conducted.

The mother of the student too was unhappy.

Another said this is what farmers do when their animals are threatened by predators.

'We must focus on all of the extremely positive and life changing things that this man has done for people'.

This article has been updated with a statement from Marion County Public Schools.

"Until our investigation is complete, I can not share further details", he added.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said they're investigating and will determine if anything illegal occurred.

An employee at the high school captured two raccoons and an opossum that had been suspected of endangering the chickens being raised by the students in the class.

In March, a junior high biology teacher in Idaho reportedly fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students. FWC Officers are investigating to see the legality of the issue that occurred.
