Teacher feeds puppy to class pet as students watch (video)
A teacher is under investigation after administrators learned about a disturbing demonstration that took place in school. Reports say that junior high students in Idaho watched as, on March 7, their popular and well-liked science teacher fed a puppy to the classroom’s snapping turtle. The teacher is now under investigation.
East Idaho News reports: Robert Crosland has taught science at Preston Junior High School for years. 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.
“The event occurred well after students had been dismissed and were not a part of any school-directed program,” Gee said in a news release. “We emphasize that at no time was the safety of students or staff compromised.”
It’s unclear if the dog was alive or dead when Crosland fed it to the turtle and although it happened after school hours, some students did witness the feeding.
Some reports say the puppy was alive, and that it had been sick (see video below).
The East Idaho News report indicates that Crosland has not been cited or charged, and has not been placed on leave by the school.
“A part of any investigation includes determining the best course of action once the facts of the matter have been ascertained,” Gee said.
EIN continues: Crosland is a popular teacher who has exotic snakes and other animals in tanks around his classroom, according to multiple parents and students who contacted EastIdahoNews.com. Three former students, who asked not to be named, said they recall Crosland feeding guinea pigs to snakes and snapping turtles during classroom demonstrations.
