Florida teacher allegedly drowns raccoons in front of students

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) responded to the incident in a statement saying that they are "looking into an incident that occurred at Forest High School in Marion County involving a raccoon".

The video was shot by a student in Ocala who was upset by what was happening.

"Why is he not fighting?" one person in the video says as the raccoon sits in the trap in the trash can filled almost to the brim with water. "It made me sick", the student's mother told WKMG-TV. 'It made me sick to my stomach'.

"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.

The student said the animals had killed several chickens that the school was raising in a shed behind the building and said the teacher made students join in drowning the animals.

The student's mother said when he got home he was crying, yelling and angry.

In other clips, a raccoon appears to struggle as the cage is lowered into the water. Brewton has been suspended and will remain on a paid administrative leave until the investigation is complete.

"We received statements that the teacher drowned multiple animals in front of students, and with student participation, because the animals were nuisance animals to the [agriculture] program at the school", Marion County School District spokesman Kevin Christian told the Star-Banner.

The FFWCC included that its officers take these matters very seriously and are working hard to "determine the legality of what occurred". The findings of that investigation will be presented to officials with the state attorney's office, who will then decide if criminal charges are appropriate in this case.

He has been the school's Future Farmers of America adviser since 2006. "This is a man who would give everything he had to make sure that his children/students are taken care of", the Forest High School FFA Alumni Chapter said. He has always gone above and beyond his call of duty to ensure that his students had everything they needed'. "He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school", the statement read.

"I don't think that's the way to treat any animal", she said.

At least two raccoons were killed, and it took them each several minutes to drown, the student said.
