An Idaho science teacher is being investigated for feeding a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students. According to KSL News, the incident took place “after hours” at Preston Junior High School on March 7.
The teacher who is being investigated is Robert Crosland – an educator who has taught at the school “for years.” Since the time of the incident, the school has released a statement about the situation. Preston School District 201 Superintendent Marc Gee stated:
“The event occurred well after students had been dismissed and was not a part of any school-directed program. We emphasize that at no time was the safety of students or staff compromised.”
“A part of any investigation includes determining the best course of action once the facts of the matter have been ascertained. This is not a situation that is easy, nor do we feel it is a measure that can be taken lightly.”
There are claims that the puppy was alive, albeit sick, when it was fed to the turtle…reports of the puppy’s screams being heard outside of the classroom have been made. The teacher at the heart of the investigation is popular with students, who have stated that he has “brought science to life,” for them.
