An Idaho Junior High teacher is under investigation after he reportedly fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students.
Robert Crosland, a longtime teacher at the school reportedly fed the dog to the turtle after school-hours with a few students. It is unclear whether the dog was still alive at the time. According to former students, Crosland was well-known for feeding guinea pigs to snakes and snapping turtles during classroom demonstrations.
“While the district certainly does not condone individual actions that may violate district policy or reasonable expectations of behavior, we hope that any errors in judgment made by a teacher in this instance will not cause us to forget the years of care, effort and passion the teacher has given to students in Preston School District,” said Superintendent Marc Gee.
