A dead steer was found at a fraternity house near the Oklahoma State University campus on Friday, about 24 hours before the Cowboys and Texas Longhorns square off in the Big 12 football championship game … and now , police are investigating.
In accordance with CBS 11's JD Miles, the carcass was discovered around 6:30 a.m. in front of the Fraternitat de Masia … with its stomach open. The words “F*** FH” were also written on the side of the longhorn.
Authorities have since removed the animal from the property … and while no official reason has been given, most believe the act is tied to OSU's huge game Saturday against UT, whose mascot is a long horn.
“Oklahoma State University is appalled by the disturbing display of animal cruelty that occurred overnight at an off-campus location near a fraternity house,” OSU officials said in a statement after the discovery of the animal.
“The Stillwater Police Department is investigating the incident and the university's Office of Student Conduct and Support has also opened an investigation.”
“Oklahoma State expects all students to adhere to the university's codes of conduct and appropriate action will be taken based on the outcome of the investigation.”
Police ask anyone with information to call 405-372-4171 or the tip line at 405-533-8477.
Meanwhile, the OSU vs. UT game will begin at 9 a.m. PT at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
