Bolstering the reputation of fraternity members everywhere
DAVIDSON - Five Davidson College students are charged with a felony after a white goose was lured away with bread crumbs and beaten to death with a golf club at the town's park.
The men, affiliated with Kappa Sigma fraternity, spent Friday night in the Mecklenburg County jail. Davidson College has suspended activities of the fraternity while it investigates the incident.
Davidson Police Chief John Kearin said he expects more arrests early this week.
Kearin said a town employee saw a group of men get out of two vehicles at Roosevelt Wilson Park about 3:30 Friday afternoon and lure the goose away from others with bread crumbs.
Then one of the men repeatedly hit the goose with a golf club. Once it stopped moving, another man tossed it into the trunk and they drove away, the chief said.
