WVU mascot told not to use musket for hunting

The musket toted by West Virginia University’s Mountaineer isn’t just a prop — it’s a bona fide weapon, and current mascot Jonathan Kimble showed just that when he went into the woods to take down a black bear.

Now WVU has ordered Kimble to stop using his university-issued weapon on hunting trips after a video of this week’s kill was posted online.

The 24-year-old Franklin resident accompanied more than a dozen friends and family members on the trip in Pendleton County on Monday. In the video, Kimble is shown firing the musket at the bear in a tree.
