NOT GUILTY: Teacher Accused Found of Feeding Live Puppy to Turtle
What a sick world we live in.
This middle school teacher who housed many animals in his classroom including a snake, lizards and a snapping turtle, fed a live puppy who was terminally ill in front of some students after school. The teacher was acquitted in court last week. Here is one account of one of the students, according to WNEP:
He let us hold it first,” the teen said about the puppy. “It was small, one-handed size for a person with big hands.”
The teen said Crosland then put the puppy in the snapping turtle tank. The puppy swam around before it was dragged to the bottom of the tank by the snapping turtle, the teen testified.
“And then the puppy passed out and became unconscious,” the teen continued.
Another witness, a 7th grade student in Crosland’s science class, said he held the puppy before it was put in the tank and could see the puppy’s ribs.
The turtle was taken away and euthanized for not having the proper permit.
