Teacher Fed Puppy To Snapping Turtle In Front Of Students

Idaho teacher under investigation for'regrettable circumstances involving'biological specimens Teacher Fed Puppy To Snapping Turtle In Front Of Students

Authorities in Idaho are investigating a report of a junior high teacher feeding a live puppy to one of his classroom reptiles in front of students.

Mortified students finked on the veteran teacher at Preston Junior High School and claimed he had been engaging in weird experiments for years. At no time during the incident was the safety of students or staff at compromised, the district says.

School district superintendent Mark Gee said Mr Crosland is still employed by the school and would not be placed on administrative leave.

"A part of any investigation includes determining the best course of action once the facts of the matter have been ascertained", Gee said.

The incident is said to have taken place after school hours in front of students.

"It was not biological specimen, it was a puppy", Jill Parrish said.

"While the district certainly does not condone individual actions that may violate district policy or reasonable expectations of behavior, we hope that any errors in judgment made by a teacher in this instance will not cause us to forget the years of care, effort and passion the teacher has given to students in Preston School District", Gee says. Franklin County Sheriff David Fryar says his office is aware of the allegations. "The prosecutor said, 'Until he decides, he considers it an open book.' He doesn't want us to do anything to hamper the investigation".

"Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal ... that is violence", Parrish said.

Seventh-grader Este Hull also made statements suggesting that the puppy was alive.

One parent who spoke to KSTU defended Crosland's actions, saying it was a deformed puppy that was going to die anyway, and it's just a hands-on way to teach the circle of life. In Detroit, a similar case in 2002 ended with the firing of a Detroit animal control worker for feeding a litter of live, weeks-old puppies to a large snake, believed to be a python. "There's a lot of humane things you can do", she said. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
