Investigation ongoing after domesticated animal castrated at Georgia high school

November 8, 2014

An investigation is ongoing after a teacher at a Georgia high school led a castration procedure, which took place on campus November 4. Fox Carolina News reported the story Friday.

The agriculture teacher at Stephens County High School in Toccoa resigned on Friday after an investigation began after a domesticated animal was brought into class and castrated.

While castration isn’t illegal, the fact that the animal was held down by class members and not sedated may fall under the statutes for animal cruelty.

Officials with the Georgia Department of Agriculture, along with animal control are investigating after several parents reported the castration.

Animal control told Fox Carolina News the animal is doing well since the incident.

Should the former teacher face animal cruelty charges? Your comments are welcome.
