Dead Bear Covered With Obama Signs Found At School

Police at Western Carolina University say a dead bear cub was found dumped on the campus draped with a pair of Barack Obama campaign signs.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported that Tom Johnson, chief of
university police, said maintenance workers reported about 7:45
a.m. Monday finding the 75-pound cub dumped at a roundabout near
the Catamount statue at the entrance to campus.

Johnson said it appeared the bear cub had been shot in the head, and that two Obama signs had been stapled together and stuck over the animal's head. Johnson was not available for further comment Monday evening.

University police called in state Wildlife Resources officials to remove the body and help in the investigation.

Bear season is under way in western North Carolina.
