WVU Mountaineer mascot ordered to stop hunting with university-issued musket

The West Virginia University Mountaineer mascot dresses in buckskins, wears a coonskin cap, and carries a musket.  As it turns out, it is a fairly effective hunting rifle.

The University has demanded that Kimble no longer hunt with the university-issued musket. So much for the vaunted spirit of the Mountaineers.
