Ag teacher allegedly drowns raccoons in front of students

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

Her son told her the creatures were trapped in cages as they were being drowned.

The FFWCC released the following statement on the matter: "The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation is looking into an incident that occurred at Forest High School in Marion County involving a raccoon".

"My son stood in the background, hid his phone and watched as they filled these trash cans full of water, and held these raccoons down in trash cans in the cages", the parent told the station.

Pictures and video taken by the student show a raccoon in a metal trap, which the teacher and students lifted into a garbage bin while it filled up with hose water, WKMG reported. "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 woman said.

The mother said that Brewton chose to kill the raccoons because it ate a chicken that the class had been raising.

Her son told her his agriculture teacher made a threat that anyone who recorded or photographed the incident would be given a referral.

In one video, the tip of a raccoon's snout is seen sticking out just above the surface of the water.

"While law enforcement tells us the teacher did not do anything illegal, his actions before students are certainly questionable", a spokesperson said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating the way the raccoons were killed.

The Commission's findings will be sent to the prosecutors, who will determine if the teacher will face charges.

Forest High School's Future Farmers of America Alumni Chapter has since rallied around Brewton, who is the group's adviser. "The FWC takes these matters seriously", FFWCC said in a statement on the matter.

'This is a man who would give everything he had to make sure that his children/students are taken care of. "He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school", the statement read.

The mother of the student too was unhappy.

"I don't think that's the way to treat any animal". "We want people to know he had them in cages, he had them trapped".

The raccoons reportedly created a nuisance and killed several chickens that were being raised by the students and staff in a shed behind the school premises.
