CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities said Tuesday that a student prank, not a political statement, was the motivation for dumping a dead bear cub draped in Barack Obama signs on a North Carolina campus earlier this week...
The students told authorities they took political signs at random to cover the bear's wound and prevent blood from spilling into the bed of the truck they were driving...
It was during that gathering, officials said, that a student suggested placing the bear at the base of a statue at the main entrance to the campus.
Maintenance workers found the bear cub's body early Monday morning near the school's entrance.
"I am pleased to hear that this situation appears to be a stupid prank," Western Carolina chancellor John W. Bardo said.
You know, I'm not licensed to practice in North Carolina and furthermore, criminal matters are not my area.
But I for one, imagine that one of the relics in North Carolina left over from the Jim Crow era appears to be the 'COMPLETE BULLSHIT DEFENSE'.
