Forest High School teacher accused of drowning 'nuisance' animals

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

As one of the students recorded cell phone video, Brewton and the students plunged them into the water and sprayed them with a hose to kill them.

"We received statements that the teacher drowned multiple animals in front of students, and with student participation, because the animals were nuisances to the ag program at the school", spokesman Kevin Christian said. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the mother said of the drownings. 'It made me sick to my stomach'.

WMUR reported, the mother of the student recalled the events of the full video, claiming that when the raccoons attempted to come to the surface of the water to breathe, the students and teacher used metal rods to hold down the animals.

Video footage recorded by the woman's son shows a raccoon trapped inside a metal cage placed inside a garbage bin that was then filled with water.

A Florida trainer was being investigated after dad and mom mentioned he had college students take part within the drowning of raccoons and chickens Monday.

"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 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. "They should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the animals".

As of Tuesday night, he is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. "The district is determining the status of the teacher at this moment".

Interestingly, as the Miami Herald noted, alumni members of the Facebook group Forest High School Future Farmers of America (Forest High School FFA Alumni) spoke out in support of Brewton as a dedicated teacher and warned that the media would escalate this story unnecessarily. FWC Officers are investigating to see the legality of the issue that occurred.

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

Some of Brewton's former students, meanwhile, have defended him as a teacher who has "gone above and beyond his call of duty" to help them. 'Whether it is a raccoon or (another animal) you just don't torture an animal and kill it like that'.
