Ding Dong, the Deer is Dead

Fear not, Wesleyan. The deer head that appeared on the Church Street stop sign (in between Exley and Clark) two nights ago is taxidermic and not a “fresh deer head.” The origins of the stuffed deer are still unknown. It is currently in the possession of the Middletown Police, after being put into a doggie bag “like leftover brisket.”

P-Safe Director Dave Meyer tells it like it is: “It appears to have been a stuffed deer head. Someone put it on the stop sign in the middle of the street. The cops were alerted and picked it up. I don’t really know much about it.”

“All I can tell you is that the deer head is not real,” a different P-Safe officer told me over the phone. “Since it was on a stop sign in the middle of the street, the deer head is now in possession of the Middletown Police.” Whether a taxidermied deer qualifies as “real” or “not real” is up to you.

The appearance of the deer head (let’s call it Bambi) has resulted in a large amount of traffic for Wesleying—over 2,000 hits in less than 12 hours.  Like other Wesleyan students, I feel that the only thing I can really say in a bizarre situation like this is keep Wes weird.
