  • 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

The raccoon drownings took place at Forest High School in Ocala, Florida.

He said raccoons had killed several chickens, which were raised by students and teachers at Marion County's Forest High School.

"It made me sick", the woman told the station.

In the interview with WKMG, the mother said the incident made her "sick to my stomach".

Her son told her his agriculture teacher made a threat that anyone who recorded or photographed the incident would be given a referral. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", said the student's mother, who wanted to remain anonymous.

In a statement, the Marion County School Board said: "While law enforcement tells us the teacher may not have done anything illegal, his actions before students are certainly questionable". One video shows the tip of a raccoon's snout sticking out just above the surface of the water.

The video, which shows cages submerged in trash cans filled with water and student participation, resulted in Dewie Brewton's leave on Tuesday.

According to the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the killing of any nuisance animal should be carried out using guidelines provided by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Apparently, Brewton and students suspected the raccoons were responsible for killing one of the chickens they were raising in the class - so they chose to trap the animals inside a garbage bin filled with water. "And that's how they killed the second one", the student added.

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. You guys that are hating on him and don't even know him can get outta her with that you can't judge a man by his mistakes. Duvi Bruton (Dewie Brewton) on the eyes of the children drowned animals in "scientific purposes".

Christian said he couldn't comment further, saying only that Brewton was placed on leave as part of the standard protocol.

"Mr. Brewton is one of the greatest men I have met in my entire life I have only had him for this freshman year but I have already learned so much from him".

"I don't understand how someone would think this is okay", one petitioner said.

The teacher blocked Chavez from entering the class, and that's when she pushed the teacher down and started punching her repeatedly, police said.
