OXFORD, Miss. — An Ole Miss student could face charges after a YouTube video showed him biting the head off a hamster while on Spring Break.
Witnesses say the hamster was fed vodka before it was killed.
The student’s fraternity has kicked him out, even though this was not at one of their events.
His family released this statement on Tuesday: “As parents we are obviously and very seriously concerned about the well-being of our son. We have withdrawn him from school, and fully intend on professionally assessing why he behaved in such a horrible way, and what we must do as a family to keep this type of behavior from ever happening again.”
