Marion County School District spokesman Kevin Christian announced that Brewton was put on leave amid reports that he drowned the animals.

"One of the raccoons ate a chicken that they were raising so the teacher pinned the raccoons", a parent said. "My friend said that the class before that, they were putting the water in the buckets", he added.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) responded to the incident in a statement saying that they are "looking into an incident that occurred at Forest High School in Marion County involving a raccoon". So they trapped the animals, and then placed the trapped animals inside a garbage bin filled with water.

The mother of the student who shot the video, both who wish to remain anonymous, said to a reporter at WKMG-TV, "It made me sick".

Video filmed by a student shows other students filling a bin with water and lowering a metal wire cage into it. In addition to holding down the drowning raccoons, the students and their instructor would use water hoses to spray the raccoons and opossum in the face in an effort to speed the drowning process. "They should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the animals", the mother commented.

Mr Brewton was placed on administrative leave while investigations are conducted. FWC Officers are investigating to see the legality of the issue that occurred. Those findings will be presented to officials with the state attorney's office, who will decide if criminal charges are appropriate.

Forest High School's FAA alumni on Wednesday posted their support for the teacher on Facebook.

'This is a man who would give everything he had to make sure that his children/students are taken care of. Another student says "Why is he not fighting?"

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

Although killing raccoons and opossums are not technically against the law, authorities have launched a full-scale investigation into the way in which the animals were killed in this instance.

"I don't think that's the way to treat any animal".
