Marion County, Florida, teacher Dewie Brewton was placed on paid administrative leave Tuesday while officials investigate allegations that he drowned trapped raccoons with student participation during school hours, the Ocala Star Banner reported.

"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.

In one video, a raccoon was seen struggling as the cage was being drowned gradually. At first, I used to be in shock, after all, however I watched the video, and it's horrific. "It's disgusting, and I can't believe it happened at school".

"They finally took the cage out of the water, and they trapped it into another smaller cage, where the top of the cage would go down into the water", he said.

The agriculture teacher warned any students that taking photographs or videos of the event would be punished with a referral, indicating that the teacher knew what he was was, at the very least, displaying questionable teaching methods.

"One of the raccoons ate a chicken that they were raising so the teacher pinned the raccoons", a parent said.

"It made me sick". 'It made me sick to my stomach'. "It's bad. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the woman said. "He could have had somebody come and relocate the animals".

People who commented on the Facebook post also came to Brewton's defence, saying such actions were necessary to protect farms and keep livestock alive. A 14-second video showed a group of students filling a tub of water using a hose and later keeping a trapped raccoon submerged. Everyone of you have made mistakes this is one of his.
