Idaho (KWWL) -

An Idaho science teacher is accused of feeding a live puppy to one of his reptiles in front of his students. 

Robert Crosland, teaches at Preston Junior High School. 

Last week, students say Crosland fed a live puppy, who was reportedly sick, to a snapping turtle. 

Some parents are saying their kids were subjected to a violent death. Others say it was a hands-on way to teach the circle of life. 

Crosland is still employed at the school. He's not been placed on administrative leave. 

Police are investigating the incident.
