Science teacher accused of feeding puppy to snapping turtle in front of students

PRESTON, Idaho (CBS/AP) – A junior high biology teacher in the small eastern Idaho town of Preston is under investigation by school and law enforcement officials after what school district officials called a “regrettable circumstance” involving biological specimens.

East Idaho News, citing a law enforcement source, reports that teacher Robert Crosland fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students.

Superintendent Marc Gee told the Idaho Statesman that the incident occurred after school on March 7 during an after-school animal feeding.

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.

“He is a cool teacher who really brought science to life,” a former student told East Idaho News.
