"The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation is looking into an incident that occurred at Forest High School in Marion County involving a raccoon".

A parent told Fox 35 she was "disgusted" when her son, a student in the Forest High School agricultural science class, brought home video of the incident she said he secretly recorded.

"My son stood within the background, hid his telephone and watched as they stuffed these trash cans filled with water, and held these raccoons down in trash cans within the cages", the dad or mum informed the station. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the mother said of the drownings. 'It made me sick to my stomach'.

"It made me sick". The teacher then caught raccoons in cages, "took the cages, filled up large trash cans full of water, and had the children drown the raccoons in the cages inside the water, inside the trash cans", she said. Her son informed her the creatures had been trapped in cages as they had been being drowned.

A Florida trainer was being investigated after dad and mom mentioned he had college students take part within the drowning of raccoons and chickens Monday.

She told Kron 4 that Brewton threatened to give a "referral" to any student in the class who recorded or took pictures of the drowning.

"When the raccoons tried to come up for air they had metal rods and they held them down with metal rods and when the raccoon would try to pop its head up they held water hoses in its face to drown it", the mother said.

In other clips, a raccoon appears to struggle as the cage is lowered into the water. He is on paid administrative leave.

"While law enforcement determines whether this teacher's actions were legal or not, his actions before students are entirely unacceptable and cause us great concern". The findings of that investigation will be presented to officials with the state attorney's office, who will then decide if criminal charges are appropriate in this case.

Brewton was Forest High School's Teacher of the Year nominee in 2010, according to the Star-Banner.

"We would like to say that we are 100% behind our advisor and everything he does for our children/students". "He is a man of faith and has always provided the wisdom and guidance needed for his students to succeed". "He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school".

'We must focus on all of the extremely positive and life changing things that this man has done for people'.
