Indiana University Frat Boy Beats Skunk To Death At Intramural Basketball Game, Charged With Animal Cruelty

Skunks suck. They eat your garbage and linger around, spraying at inopportune times like 3AM, waking everyone in your neighborhood up with their foul odor. But they’re one of God’s critters just like all the other animals of the forest, even when they invade frat row at Indiana University.

According to Fox 59, IU frat bro Andrew Baldini went full Eli Roth in Inglourious Basterds on a skunk when it popped up at an intramural basketball game. It sounds like the scene was some real macabre pest control, according to police. He was booked on felony animal cruelty charges for beating Pepe Le Pew with a shovel:

According to police, a fraternity house on the Bloomington campus has been having problems with skunks.

Last Friday, some of the fraternity members were playing basketball when a skunk walked across the court.

Police say Andrew Baldini picked up a shovel and hit the skunk. The skunk was injured by the blow and limped away.

Baldini followed the skunk and hit it several more times with the shovel, killing it on a public sidewalk on East 3rd Street.

Baldini was arrested and transported to the jail on a felony charge of animal cruelty.

Real man of you following it after it’s initial scare, moron. Really took matters into your own hands, like a man! Now you have felony charges pending for trying to assert your alpha dominance on a little woodland garbage creature.

Should have just called Bloomington’s pest control folks.
