Student Cited for Dumping Dead Ducks at Frat House
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – A Southeast Missouri State University student was cited for littering by state conservation officials after he admitted dumping dead ducks at a fraternity house.
According to a report in The Southeast Missourian, the student, whose name has not been released, was seen on a surveillance camera earlier this month throwing 16 dead ducks into the entryway of a building that houses members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.
The campus Public Safety Department says that the man turned himself in and admitted dumping the ducks. He was then cited by the Missouri Department of Conservation for littering.
Conservation department agent Kyle Booth told The Southeast Missourian that further charges may be pending for the people who shot the ducks because they did not dispose of them properly.
“The conservation department has talked with those individuals and as of right now there have been no charges filed, but they are possible,” he said.
The citation for littering for the student who dumped the ducks is a Class A misdemeanor and can carry up to a $1,000 fine and a year in jail if he is found guilty, Booth said.
