fraternity members kill, eat 50-year-old fish; helicopter noise bothers residents.
First, MTV was denied the right to film on the UC Santa Cruz campus, where they’re following Delta Omega Chi for Fraternity Life 2. Now, two fraternity members are in trouble for stealing, killing, and eating a 50-something-year-old Japanese koi fish from a campus pond. They “used a stolen rake to swat the gentle, 3-foot-long fish out of the pond, killed it and later cooked it,” according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel. The DA is looking into charges, and the students could be expelled; the fraternity says it just two members were involved, not the whole fraternity. Earlier, Santa Cruz residents complained about noise from a low-flying helicopter, which was shooting set-up shots for the show; some residents even called 911. The FAA approved the 4.5 hour flight and says there were no violations, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
