On what planet did this teacher think that doing something like this was every exceptable?
A longtime junior high science teacher in Idaho is under investigation after students say he fed a puppy to a snapping turtle.
Robert Crosland, of Preston Junior High School, reportedly fed a dog to a turtle last Wednesday after classes ended for the day, Superintendent Marc Gee said in a news release.
The school superintendent said administrators had been informed of the ‘regrettable circumstance involving some of the biological specimens’ afterward.
He said the incident took place ‘well after students had been dismissed’.
Crosland has not been dismissed or reprimanded for his strange actions – which students claim have been going on for years.
At least three of Crosland’s unidentified students told the East Idaho News the science teacher also previously demonstrated himself feeding ‘guinea pigs to snakes’.
The young students also added that Mr. Crosland has been ‘popular’ at Preston Junior High.

‘He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life… I loved his class because he had turtles and snakes and other cool things,’ one kid told the local news outlet.
It’s currently unclear what motivated Crosland to act out the incident or if the puppy was alive.
Gee added in the news release school officials are working to make sure another incident of this kind does not occur in the future.
‘A part of any investigation includes determining the best course of action once the facts of the matter have been ascertained,’ Gee wrote.
‘This is not a situation that is easy, nor do we feel it is a measure that can be taken lightly.’
