A Florida high school teacher has been suspended after he was accused of drowning raccoons in the classroom.
A teacher at Forest Hill School in Ocala, Florida, is facing termination from his position after a video of him drowning raccoons in front of his students was posted to the internet.
The teacher, Dewie Brewton, was captured on video drowning raccoons in a garbage bin in front of his students.
In a statement, the Forest High School Future Farmers Club of America Alumni group defended Brewton, arguing that the teacher is a valuable member of the school community.
According to a Washington Post report, some community members have defended Brewton’s actions and argued that drowning raccoons in garbage bins serves to preserve farms and their livestock.
