An investigation is underway after a teacher at a Florida high school was accused of drowning wild animals in a garbage can while students watched and assisted, CBS Orlando affiliate WKMG reports.

Brewton was Forest High School's Teacher of the Year nominee in 2010, according to the Star-Banner.

One parent said her son recorded the video, brought it home, showed it to her and she was "disgusted" by what she saw. "My friend said that the class before that, they were putting the water in the buckets", he added.

Regardless of whether the animals killed the chickens raised by the class, Brewton had no business killing them, she said.

"When the raccoons tried to come up for air they had metal rods and they held them down with metal rods and when the raccoon would try to pop its head up they held water hoses in its face to drown it", a parent told WKMG, which released a heavily censored clip of the incident in which no animals are visible.

"We want people to know he had them in cages, he had them trapped", the teen's mother said. "And that's how they killed the second one", they said.

This act of the teacher of agriculture Dewey Bruton from Florida caused a wave of indignation.

The mother of the student too was unhappy.

'I don't think that's the way to treat any animal, ' she said.

'It's awful. It still does make me sick to my stomach'.

"It made me sick. It's bad. It still does make me sick to my stomach", the woman said. "They should have trapped the animal and had somebody take them and relocate the animals", the mother said. After the drowning of the animal came directly during class.

"While law enforcement tells us the teacher did not do anything illegal, his actions before students are certainly questionable".

"Until our investigation is complete, I can not share further details", he added. The district further stated that regardless of the outcomes of the investigations, Superintendent Dr. Heidi Maier is recommending that the teacher be fired. Students and staff reportedly raise chickens and other livestock that live in a shed on school grounds.

Officials say the district, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Florida Department of Health are investigating.

Brewton has been suspended with pay while he's investigated by Forest High School. FWC Officers are investigating to see the legality of the issue that occurred. A spokesman said the agency "takes these matters seriously".
