Breaking (Kind of): Another Storm May Be Approaching Sorta Perhaps

No, this one isn’t named Dory.

For those of you who don’t follow our really awesome Facebook page or Twitter feed (Zach, see what I did there?), I’m gonna hit you with some knowledge: there may be another snowstorm hitting our beloved campus this coming weekend.

You heard me right: More snow. Allegedly. More snowboarding. Perhaps. More tripping and falling on ice. Supposedly. More cancelled classes (at the last second, of course). Apparently. More clusterfucked Usdan. Maybe.

What you need to know about this “storm”:

No One Really Sure What 26 Sheep, Goat Carcasses Doing in Middletown

“I don’t understand where they got it,” said Kyle Wright of Middletown. “I don’t know there’s any sheep in Middletown.”

A few weeks ago, a crew of Wesleyan students set about filming a horror movie in a foul-smelling abandoned house on River Road. Unbeknownst to them—or their director, Ethan Young ’13—the real horror lay in the black bags in the house containing entrails, fleece, and heads of 26 sheep and goats. Just another day in Middletown.

According to reports in the Courant, WSFB, and NBC Connecticut, it’s unclear how long the carcasses have been sitting at the abandoned property, but Connecticut’s Animal Control Division as well as the Department of Agriculture have been called in to investigate. The state’s veterinarian office has concluded that the bags were likely the renderings from a slaughter, which could bring about illegal dumping charges. In a video report on WFSB, a reporter nearly gags on scene while describing the putrid smell at the site:

The news reports claim that Wesleyan students called the police to report the awful stench. NBC Connecticut suggests that the Wes kids actually discovered the carcasses. But when I contacted Ethan Young for details, that was the first he was hearing of the dead sheep.
