Idaho where Robert Crosland has long taught science

A longtime junior high school biology teacher in Idaho is under investigation following what the Preston School District is saying was a "regrettable" use of biological specimens last week, Superintendent Marc Gee said Monday.

Yet despite having full knowledge of this horrifying incident, the school has yet to take any action against the teacher, Robert Crosland. It added no students or staff had their safety compromised but did not name the teacher involved.

The school district released a statement explaining that they were attempting to determine the best course of action. The school said most of the students had left for the day.

The school district did not immediately confirm the report, but did say students had been dismissed at the time of the incident.

A 7th grade student told KSTU that Crosland, a longtime educated, typically fed mice or birds to his exotic animals, including snakes, in tanks in the classroom.

"Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal". It was probably going to die, that's all beside the point.

Another parent of a student at the school echoed Hull's sentiment.

A junior high school teacher is under investigation in Idaho after allegedly feeding a puppy to a turtle. The district said they are investigating along with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, according to the Idaho Statesman. "The prosecutor said, 'Until he decides, he considers it an open book.' He doesn't want us to do anything to hamper the investigation".

In 2015, they handed the camera over to a Haitian photography to document the reality of the world through their lens. Mason also noted that these failures were likely related to the circumstances of National Geographic's founding.

"If it was a deformed puppy that was going to die anyway ... is very much circle of life", said Annette Salvesen.

In a prepared statement, school district officials asked community members for patience and said the teacher has shown care, effort and passion on the job for years.

That explanation didn't satisfy Parrish, however.

Look in all honesty I'm sure he was a cool guy but this is one of those things which are hard to forget, you know? "Feeding a live animal to a reptile is not humane and it's not okay". The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of, its sponsors or advertisers.
