Frat Boys Allegedly Torture Turkey!

According to witnesses and media reports, members of the University of Kansas’ Beta Theta Pi fraternity reportedly tortured a turkey to death during a party at their building.

The terrified animal was allegedly kicked in the cage that contained her and then relentlessly chased through a crowd of 150 people. Fraternity members allegedly threw her around “like a football,” swung her through the air, and choked her.

During this horrific ordeal, the screaming bird apparently sustained multiple broken bones and was ultimately killed.

Charges have not yet been filed against those responsible, even though these actions likely violate Kansas §21-6412 which defines “cruelty to animals” as “knowingly and maliciously killing, injuring, maiming, torturing, burning or mutilating any animal.”

Urge officials to make sure charges are filed and urge University of Kansas officials to enact a campus-wide ban on events involving live animals. Send polite comments to:

    This makes me want to cry. So many evil humans around these days, but so many amazing people such as all the members of the Street Team on Peta.

    The email response I received was the following: “Thank you for your message. As you may know, this incident is under investigation by the Lawrence Police Department. It is also being investigated by the national fraternity, which has suspended the local chapter indefinitely, and the KU Interfraternity Council. The University of Kansas expects anyone with information about this incident to cooperate fully.

    Behavior such as that reported is reprehensible and is not what KU would expect from its students.”
