    Is it alright because the puppy had a birth defect and might have died anyway?

    PRESTON, Idaho - A school district in Preston, Idaho is investigating an incident that took place at Preston Junior High last week.

    Deputies say a science teacher, Robert Crosland, fed a live puppy to one of his reptiles in front of students.

    Local animal activist, Jill Parrish, is the one who filed the police report.

    "What I have learned in the last four days is disgusting. It is sick. It is sick," said Parrish.

    Parrish says a teacher told her that last week after school, Mr. Crosland fed a live puppy, who was reportedly sick, to one of his reptiles. He has a snake and a snapping turtle. Apparently, it all happened in front of students.

    "Allowing children to watch an innocent baby puppy scream because it is being fed to an animal. That is violence. That is not okay," says Parrish.

    Este Hull is a 7th-grade student at Preston Junior High.

    "I've only heard him feed like mice or birds to his animals...I feel a little bit better that it was a puppy that was going to die, not just a healthy puppy," says Hull.

    It's a sentiment echoed by parents, Annette Salvesen and Julie Johnson.

    holy shit, fed it to a snapping turtle? That would have been brutal.

    An EX-GF used to buy a bag of feeder-goldfish twice a week for her snapping-turtle. Seemed like a lazy turtle, but once you dump the entire bag in, the turtle goes insane with murder.

    That is fucking bullshit. :pissed:

    I don't care if the puppy was going to die anyway.

    Keep the puppy as comfortable as possible until it passes, not have it's flesh torn away and have it die in agony.

    I usually don't rag on kids because they don't know better but this kid:

    Este Hull is a 7th-grade student at Preston Junior High.

    "I've only heard him feed like mice or birds to his animals...I feel a little bit better that it was a puppy that was going to die, not just a healthy puppy," says Hull.

    Maybe the authorities should keep an eye on this kid for hte next decade or so...

    As the owner of a large snake, I'm thoroughly disgusted by this asshole. I'm against live feeding of any kind. Too dangerous for the snake and too terrifying for the prey. It's just not necessary unless you get off on that sort of thing, I don't.

    This.

    My dad was a farm kid, animal death was no big deal. That sick puppy would have been thrown into the hog pen.

    My sister used to have a pet tarantula. The thing looked like a statue in it's aquarium most of the time...until she dumped bag of live crickets in there. Then all of a sudden it became Jumpin' Jack flash.

    Can I ask what attracted you to having a snake as a pet?

    I've always liked snakes. As a small kid, I was always catching them and keeping them in coffee cans. For a while, I had a baby milk snake that I would take to school in like third grade. I think what I liked most was how everyone else was so terrified of them. They're very misunderstood creatures.
