Florida teacher on leave after drowning raccoons in class
OCALA, FLORIDA — A Florida teacher is trying to catch his breath after being placed on administrative leave for allegedly having his students drown two wild raccoons and an opossum in class. A 15-second video published by WKMG in Orlando shows a group of students filling a garbage can with a hose and then later submerging a raccoon, which was trapped inside a metal trap. The raccoons had reportedly been killing chickens the students were raising for class.
How dare they kill chickens? Humans would never do anything like that — ughh. Looks like teacher Dewie Brewton had his students from his agricultural class dispose of two raccoons and an opossum on Monday at Forest High School. Brewton is currently on leave with pay as the school investigates the incident.
Authorities from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are also investigating..
