Idaho teacher accused of feeding puppy to snapping turtle

14 March, 2018, 05:21 | Author: Wade Massey
  • Local authorities in Idaho are reportedly investigating after a middle school teacher at Preston Junior High made what the school district called a “regrettable” decision by allegedly feeding a live dog to a turtle

Robert Crosland allegedly fed the pooch to the reptile while students watched after class on Wednesday at Preston Junior High School in Preston, near the Utah border.

Gee told the East Idaho News that Crosland has not been cited, charged or placed on leave as of Monday. Preston School District sent a letter to parents saying the incident had not occurred as "part of any school directed program" and that the incident was "regrettable", Fox News reported.

Gee said the safety of students or staff was not compromised.

Details are thin on the ground and it's unclear at this point whether the dog was dead or alive when it was fed to the turtle - although local animal activist Jill Parrish told KSTU-TV that the puppy was sick, and was alive when fed to the snapping turtle.

"He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life", a student told local media. "I loved his class because he had turtles and snakes and other cool things".

"We understand that the case has been forwarded to the prosecutor's office for a review of potential criminal charges, and TeachKind-PETA's humane education division-is urging the school district to take this incident just as seriously".

Franklin County Sheriff, David Fryar, says the department is looking into it. That is violence. That is not okay, "said Parrish".

'Buffy' revival a possibility, but only with creator Joss Whedon

"Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal".

The school district released a statement explaining that they were attempting to determine the best course of action. "This is not a situation that is easy, nor do we feel it is a measure that can be taken lightly", Gee said. As some students recalled, he has previously fed guinea pigs to "snakes and turtles during classroom demonstrations" - an act that apparently made him rather popular among the teens.

It's a sentiment echoed by parents, Annette Salvesen and Julie Johnson.

District administration was made aware of the issue soon after it occurred and immediately began the process of investigation and taking steps to ensure that this type of action could not be repeated.

"If it was a deformed puppy that was going to die anyway, Cros (land) is very much circle-of-life", Salveson added.

That explanation didn't satisfy Parrish, however.

"There's a lot of humane things you can do". The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
