Sick teacher drowns raccoons in front of class. Students help.

OCALA, Fla. - An investigation is underway after it was reported that a teacher at Forest High School drowned wild raccoons in a large garbage bin while students in his agriculture class assisted and watched.

The mother of one of the students who was in the class Monday, who asked to remain anonymous, said her son came home in tears over what happened to the animals, which the teacher said had been killing the class's chickens.

"It made me sick. It made me sick to my stomach. It's terrible. It still does make me sick to my stomach," the woman said.

Pictures and video recorded by that student show a raccoon in a metal wire trap, which the teacher and students then lifted into a garbage bin while they filled it with water from several hoses.

"When the raccoons tried to come up for air they had metal rods and they held them down with metal rods and when the raccoon would try to pop its head up they held water hoses in its face to drown it," the mother said.

In one video, the tip of a raccoon's snout is seen sticking out just above the surface of the water.


"Why is he not fighting?" one person in the video says as the raccoon sits in the trap in the trash can filled nearly to the brim with water.

The woman said two raccoons were drowned Monday and an opossum that was found later was killed "just for sport."

3. Execute the teacher

And the students who cheerfully helped. It will do society a favor.

5. Five young raccoons killed my hen last fall and gave her rooster a good beating. He later died

of his injuries or a broken heart. I blamed myself for not having a raccoon proof coop. The raccoons were just being raccoons.

My new hens are in a new raccoon proof coop at night.

The teacher is evil.

7. During recess, we'd drown gophers out of their holes and kill them with baseball bats.

It was a small country school.

It was a tradition handed down from class to class like other children's games.
