The superintendent of Marion County Public Schools is recommending that a teacher accused of drowning two raccoons in front of students be terminated. It made me sick to my stomach.

The video was shot by a student in Ocala who was upset by what was happening.

According to local press reports, the teacher was angry with the raccoons because they ate the chicken, which the pupils grew up alone as a school project.

A Florida High School teacher is on administrative leave after a student recorded a classroom activity that made his mother "sick to her stomach". Her son told her the creatures were trapped in cages as they were being drowned. Took the cages, filled up large trash cans full of water and had the children drown the raccoons in the cages inside the water.

The agriculture teacher warned any students that taking photographs or videos of the event would be punished with a referral, indicating that the teacher knew what he was was, at the very least, displaying questionable teaching methods. "It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the mother, who did not want to be identified, told WKMG.

In one video, students can be seen pouring water into the raccoon's cage as it sits in the garbage bin.

The teacher has worked at the school since 2006.

It also apologised for "this unintentional mistake and is now conducting internal investigations to quickly rectify this mistake". But this isn't the first time an worldwide company has found itself in hot water over China territorial issues.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is looking into how the raccoons were killed, according to a spokesman.

The teacher of the agriculture class was placed on paid leave Tuesday. The commission's findings will be sent to prosecutors, who will determine if the teacher will face charges. "This is a man who would give everything he had to make sure that his children/students are taken care of". He has always gone above and beyond his call of duty to ensure that his students had everything they needed'.

"He has spent late nights, weekends and has provided around the clock support for his club and for his school", a post on the Forest High School FFA Alumni page reads.

But the mother of the student who filmed the incident remains unconvinced that the raccoons were handled in the appropriate manner.

Another said this is what farmers do when their animals are threatened by predators.

The parent told the station two raccoons were killed along with an opossum.
