Deer and other animals found dead at Ball State University
Sunday, November 20, 2005
The carcasses of two deer, a coyote, and a possum were dumped in the Delta Gamma Iota fraternity house on the campus of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana on November 10. The dead animals were apparently placed in the house while members slept. A repairman discovered the prank while working in the house's kitchen.
Members left the house for at least a day while the animals were removed and the house was disinfected by the Delaware County Health Department.
The fraternity house is located off-campus and is recognized by Ball State -- the DGI house is unaffiliated with the intra-fraternity council, however.
The animals were apparently "roadkill" (struck and killed by automobiles on the road). The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is investigating the incident due to the use of deceased animals in vandalism.
