If you're capable of being shocked by the behavior of college students, you might be shocked by what these students at UMass Dartmouth did.

From the Office of the Chancellor:

Last Friday, Professor Stacy Latt Savage and her 16 first-year students in the 3D Sculpture class installed a whimsical and heartwarming sheep sculpture ensemble--four white and one black--on the meadow in front of the CVPA Building on campus.

...

Regrettably on Saturday, less than 24 hours after installation, the black sheep in the ensemble was stolen and the remaning sheep were vandalized.

...

Who would commit such a sensless act of vandalism and disrespect and why?

 

Why? Because they could. Obviously this was a completely unacceptable thing to do, but... well, asking a college kid to explain why he did something stupid as a prank is like asking a fish to explain quantum physics.

Let's hope we never find out what kind of vandalism happened to that poor sheep sculpture.
