A terrible situation has allegedly taken place in Idaho after a science teacher made a horrible decision. According to Fox News, a teacher is being investigated after allegedly feeding a live puppy to a snapping turtle.
The teacher has been known to feed live animals to other animals in the past. Some students recalled watching him feed guinea pigs to snakes and turtles in prior years.
The incident took place at Preston Junior High in eastern Idaho. The school district has been alerted to the reports and local police are looking into the case.
“On March 7, 2018 Preston School District was made aware of a regrettable circumstance involving some of the biological specimens at Preston Jr. High,” the statement from the school district read. “We emphasize that at no time was the safety of students or staff compromised.”
The teacher has not yet been identified. It was reported that the incident occurred after school hours. One child spoke out as a former student of the science teacher in question and had positive things to say about him.
“He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life," one former student said. "I loved his class because he had turtles and snakes and other cool things."
The school district has taken some heat online after posting a response to the incident. They mentioned that while the incident "does not condone individual actions that may violate district policy or reasonable expectations of behavior," they don't want it to overshadow years of great work by the teacher.
