Kappa Sigma Closes Its Davidson College Chapter After Goose Beating

January 2003

When six freshmen at Davidson College in North Carolina were required to beat a goose to death with a golf club during a hazing ritual, PETA took action.

We bombarded the Supreme Executive Committee of Kappa Sigma fraternity with letters, calls and e-mail mesages. As a result, the committee shut down its Davidson College chapter. Hazing incidents involving animals sadly are not uncommon at college frats, but this was the first time a fraternity shut down one of its chapters based on cruelty to animals.
