Punish Teacher Who Allegedly Fed a Puppy to a Snapping Turtle

Target: Vic A. Pearson, Prosecuting Attorney for Franklin County, Idaho

Goal: Demand that the teacher who allegedly fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in the presence of children be charged with animal cruelty and receive the maximum penalty by law.

A science teacher allegedly fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students after school hours. The puppy was described as “deformed,” and it is unclear whether the puppy was alive or dead during the feeding. Demand justice for this innocent puppy.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office reported to Preston Junior High School, where a teacher allegedly fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in the presence of students. This was reportedly not the first time that Robert Crosland, a science teacher known for his dedication to the “circle of life,” fed small mammals to reptiles in the classroom. Past students have come forward, stating that they’d previously witnessed Crosland feed guinea pigs to snakes. It is unclear whether or not the puppy was alive at the time of the feeding.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating, and the county prosecutor will soon decide whether to press charges against Crosland. Meanwhile, Crosland remains employed at the school and has not been removed from the classroom. Sign below and demand that Crosland be charged with animal cruelty and receive the maximum penalty by law if found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prosecutor Pearson,

A teacher fed a puppy to a snapping turtle in front of students, investigators claim. The teacher reportedly has a long history of feeding animals to reptiles in his classroom. We demand justice for this poor puppy.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to Preston Junior High School after Robert Crosland, a  science teacher, allegedly fed a dead or dying puppy to a snapping turtle. The shocking demonstration reportedly took place in the presence of children after school hours. Per investigators, Crosland has a history of feeding small mammals to reptiles in his classroom as part of a “circle of life” demonstration. Past students have come forward, stating that they witnessed Crosland feed a guinea pig to a snake. Crosland remains employed at Preston Junior High School, and he has not yet been charged.

We demand that you charge Crosland with animal cruelty and seek the maximum penalty by law.

Sincerely,

  1. This science teacher needs to be removed from the classroom immediately – and charged with animal cruelty. Cruelty always begins with animals and he has just taught students that animal
    cruelty is acceptable.

  2. If this is the way children are taught in the US there is small wonder that we hear daily of acts of abominable cruelty. This sadist has to be put away and not let anywhere near vulnerable children. I’m appalled since he has done this sort of thing before. Yes, animals do eat other animals but does this twisted idiot think he has the right to do the same? It’s not likely anyone will eat him, is it? Unless, hopefully, an escaped lion comes his way.

  3. Lock her up!!!!

    What a callous, insensitive creature he is. Certainly not fit to be dealing with animals or children. Disgusting individual.

    “A long history of feeding animals to reptiles in his classroom…” and he is still teaching. It happens in nature –we got it– but captive animals? He is definitely unfit to be around children and other animals.

  7. Jeanette Duurvoort says:

    He is protected by this insane teachers union. He is a pariah that takes joy out of getting away with horror tactics. This is school not the jungle, moron. Lets get this maniacal maniac away from kids.
