A science teacher is now being investigated after reports of him feeding a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students surfaced. It remains unclear what the condition of the puppy was but according to an animal rights activist, the teacher fed the innocent pup while it was still alive.

Animal rights activist Jill Parrish filed a complaint last week after hearing that Mr. Robert Crosland did the cruel act with students watching him.

Preston Junior High teacher Robert Crosland is accused of animal cruelty.

He is said to have fed an innocent puppy to a snapping turtle after school.

Parrish couldn’t let this one slide and is adamant to expose the unjust treatment of the puppy. She told Fox 13 that what Crosland did was an act of violence.

“Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal. That is violence. That is not OK.”

Parrish knew about the incident because she was informed by another teacher and was told that the puppy that was fed was not healthy. Parents reportedly claimed that the puppy was “deformed” and that it “was going to die anyway.”

Snapping turtles are an invasive species in Idaho.

These reptiles may look harmless like any of the their turtle cousins, but these omnivores have strong jaws and a powerful bite that can easily cut your fingers.

Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and school officials have yet to confirm about the story about Crosland feeding the puppy to the reptile in front of students, but as reported, the school had a news release about a “regrettable” animal feeding on March 7.

Following the accusations against Crosland, police have been stationed at the said high school since threats of violence from angered people online have been made. Preston police chief and Franklin County have called for a meeting with district administrators and decided that “the threat warrants continued police presence as a precaution, but that it does not pose a credible threat to the safety of our students.”

People all over the county were clearly riled up upon hearing of the news about Crosland. However, the teacher also has his own supporters — actually 3,000 of them and counting who are willing to defend him.

Many former and current students, parents and community members have shown their support for the Science teacher. Admittedly, they are disappointed that the story made it big. Crosland’s supporters have already launched a petition called “We Support Crosland” where over 3,229 people (as of this writing) have left positive messages for “one of the best science teachers in the Preston Idaho School District.”

Crosland has not been cited or charge with a crime as investigation is ongoing.

How would you react if you found out your special someone’s been cheating on you? Would you be furious? Disgusted, maybe? Well its understandable when you take it negatively since, you know, cheating is something no one wants in a relationship, right?

We’ve seen spouses go on violent rages as they deal with cheating partners. This is exactly why it’s very refreshing and amusing to see how some people manage to handle the situation with absolute chillness.

This guy caught his girlfriend in the act – but he didn’t freak out.

Marriage is not an easy thing. This is why many couples take years to decide before tying the knot. Apparently, an Indian doctor’s experience says otherwise. He had to literally marry a complete stranger after his first (supposedly) bride left him at the altar. And her reason? Well, he was balding.

Ravi Kumar had to travel more or less 1,000 km from New Delhi to the village of Sugauli in Bihar just to marry a woman he had never ever met. It was his family who arranged the wedding a year in advance, just after the girl’s father stayed at Dr. Kumar’s home three times.

Dr. Kumar's first bride-to-be left him after she found out he was balding.
