Wildlife official: Someone killing animals on college campus

The latest carcass was found Tuesday

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Officials say someone is illegally hunting small animals on Pennsylvania State University's main campus.

Mike Steingraber, a wildlife official with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, said two squirrels and two rabbits were likely killed by the same person. The Centre Daily Times reports the latest animal carcass was found Tuesday.

Steingraber says four of the animal killings were all performed by a utility knife mounted on a skewer.

The killings on campus were first reported in August. Steingraber said it's extremely sad that someone is doing this, noting it's unlawful and that the animals are being killed needlessly.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the game commission.
