The student said the teacher asked students to not record the drownings, but many of them did.

Students suspended for disobeying the teacher and also recording in class in 3.....2......

Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again.


(Please note:  This cheap pop-cultural reference in no way represents an endorsement of drowning anything.  It is just how I cope with the horrors of everyday existence and is probably the reason that during a nuclear apocalypse, my last thought will be "I don't believe it, I just don't believe it! ....The things I can do with a Spirograph!)

That's amazing. When I was a kid we couldn't have pagers because it meant we were drug dealers. Today most kids have a phone/computer/video camera in their pockets.

Oh and I wish one of those raccoons would have bit the teacher and given him rabies.

To want to dispose of a pigeon.

Yeah.  Beheading with a hatchet is much more humane.


While technically true that beheading is probably more humane than drowning, it might be even more humane to call animal control to relocate them.

It's a "classic" animal disposal technique, especially within city limits.

In a lot of places you can't relocate raccoons legally because they're rabies vectors, so if you trap one you have to kill it.  And if you're in a city, you typically can't legally shoot it. And if you call animal control and say you have a trapped raccoon (at least around me) they'll shrug and say once it's in your trap, it's your responsibility.

That doesn't leave many options.

You try holding down a potentially rabid raccoon to cut off it's head and see how that goes for you.

/this is actually a pretty traditional way for disposing of nuisance animals on farms.
//not saying I agree with it
///the way laws are written doesn't leave a lot of options around here.

Fish and Wildlife Commission, they don't pussyfoot around in Florida. That teacher's got some consequences coming, possibly jail time for animal cruelty.

No, and if I were more cleverer, I would have made a priest / killing kitten joke.  But I didn't.  Thanks for pointing it out.

My daughter had a big limb come down in her yard, and ended up with a young raccoon, who obviously had his spine shattered, squealing and trying to move in her yard.  NONE of the local agencies would come out to take this "wild creature" and put it out of its misery.  That got left up to me.  My plan was to put it in a pillow case, then hit it in the head with a big metal mallet.  That plan didn't go really well, and it was a disgusting process.  I feel bad again just typing about it.

Relocate if they appear healthy, only kill if they show signs of rabbis.  Even then, there are a hundred better ways to do it, like letting animal control give them a lethal injection.  Best part is, animal control can probably check for rabbis.

It wasn't drowning.  It was an attempt at teaching the animals to swim.  Granted, an unsuccessful attempt.

//  Actually, raccoons can swim.  They just don't like to.
 
2018-05-16 11:22:15 AM  
The correct action would be to tell the students the raccoons are going to a farm up north where they can run and play. Then later when the students aren't around, drown them.

I don't know about your state, but relocating animals is typically illegal and animal control is not going to come over to put it to sleep either. Best bet would be to tell them it bit you and hope they don't charge you for the rabies testing.

In my family, this has worked well for three cats, two dogs, a hamster, and my younger brother Steve when he wouldn't eat his vegetables. Someday I'm going to find out where that farm is and go visit Steve.

So, like, if the raccoon is reading the Torah, performing a bris, that kind of thing...

No, it's not legal.  And it's a felony in Florida.  It doesn't matter that it's "traditional", it's still cruel.  And the law doesn't make exceptions for "tradition".

(2)A person who intentionally commits an act to any animal, or a person who owns or has the custody or control of any animal and fails to act, which results in the cruel death, or excessive or repeated infliction of unnecessary pain or suffering, or causes the same to be done, commits aggravated animal cruelty, a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or by a fine of not more than $10,000, or both.

And since they're bigger than raccoons, they're pretty easy to find. Especially when they are in the cage with the raccoon.

Florida law on dispatch of nuisance animals doesn't specify what methods can or can't be used.

Like how if I shoot a deer I'm legal under game law, but if I shoot a dog it would be animal cruelty.

You'd have to look at Florida nuisance wildlife laws and guidance to determine if this would be disposal of a live trapped animal or animal cruelty.

Yes it does. Leaving the raccoons alone. Because they're everywhere, and drowning a couple isn't going to change anything. If you don't want raccoons eating your chickens, build a better chicken coop.
