Teacher on leave after drowning raccoons during class

Raccoons are normally shy nocturnal animals

As one of the students recorded cell phone video, Brewton and the students plunged them into the water and sprayed them with a hose to kill them. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", said the mother, who did not want to be identified. It made me sick to my stomach.

One parent said her son recorded the video, brought it home, showed it to her and she was "disgusted" by what she saw.

Footage from the class shows a raccoon in a metal wire trap being dunked into a garbage bin that has been filled with water.

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

Brewton has been suspended with pay while he's investigated by Forest High School. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", she said, according to Channel9. One of the chickens was killed by a wild predator and they suspected raccoons or a opossum was responsible.

The teacher is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
