In a shocking act of cruelty, a science teacher at Preston Junior High in Idaho reportedly fed a live puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students.
Robert Crosland, a teacher at Preston Junior High in Preston, Idaho, a small city near the Utah border, is accused of feeding a puppy to the turtle as the students watched, according to local media.
Police became involved in the investigation when an animal rights activist, Jill Parrish, filed a police report against Crosland after learning about the incident from another teacher, Fox News reported. However, the teacher has not been charged, disciplined or placed on any kind of leave.
The Preston School District issued a press release two days after the alleged incident, saying they were "made aware of a regrettable circumstance" involving "biological specimens". "We emphasize that at no time was the safety of students or staff compromised".
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.
"He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life", one student said, the News reported.
Crosland is still working as the investigation continues, reports say.

It's unclear if the dog was alive or dead when Crosland fed it to the turtle.
It appears that after school hours Crosland fedthe puppy to a snapping turtle while some students watched.
"If it was a deformed puppy that was going to die anyway ... is very much circle of life", said Annette Salvesen. Even if the puppy was going to die, though, Parrish doesn't think this was the way to do it.
The school district released a statement explaining that they were attempting to determine the best course of action.
"There's a lot of humane things you can do". The alleged incident occurred after school on March 7. "This is not a situation that is easy, nor do we feel it is a measure that can be taken lightly", the district superintendent said.
Este Hull, a seventh-grader at the school, said she has only known Crosland to feed his animals mice or birds. In a prepared statement, school district officials asked community members for patience and said the teacher has shown care, effort and passion on the job for years.
