NORTH CAROLINA - The carcass of the black bear, shot in the head, was found in the morning. Campus Police Chief Tom Johnson said that his officers were alerted around 7:45 a.m.
Maintenance workers had found the 34kg cub just in front of the university's administrative building.
Bizarrely, the bear was found wrapped in Barack Obama campaign signs, which had been taped together and placed on its head.
Johnson said the motive for this act remains a mystery.
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission regards this incident as a criminal case and are investigating appropriately.
Bear hunting is in season in western North Carolina but the dumping of the carcass constitutes a ""wanton and willful waste of wildlife."
