There’s doing stupid shit at university and then there’s doing stupid shit at university, and the ass clowns that got a puppy to do a keg stand at a frat party have been suspended.
It doesn’t take a university education to understand that feeding booze to dogs is a fucking stupid idea, but then perhaps I don’t understand the state of the schooling system in America.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for wild party antics, and back in my university days I partook in some stupid drink related activities – although they were the type that included covering our human Finnish transfer student friend with empty cans and flour when he passed out.
A five-second video of the moronic frat behaviour was shared on Twitter on Saturday (May 11) and has since been viewed over 125K times. The Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at Hofstra University in Long Island, New York, has since been suspended.
The video shows one male holding a puppy over a keg while another fires beer into its mouth at an off-campus party. At least two people can be heard in the background screaming ‘Let’s go!’
According to the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), which is investigating the incident, the video was posted to Snapchat by an Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity member, NBC News reports.

Gary Rodgers, a detective with the Nassau County SPCA, said the poor pup belongs to a 21-year-old senior student at the school.
Rodgers said he saw the pup, Buddy, on Monday (May 13) and it appeared to be in good health.
No matter what, it’s rather disturbing that someone would make this decision to do this to an animal.
Alcohol can be poisonous to an animal. We hear about frat hazing all the time. We shouldn’t have frat hazing to animals.
A university spokeswoman told NBC the behaviour in the video was ‘unacceptable’ and in violation of the university’s Code of Community Standards.

The spokeswoman said:
The University has been in communication with Alpha Epsilon Pi International headquarters, as well as with chapter members regarding this off-campus incident.
In accordance with University policy, the chapter has been placed on interim suspension pending an investigation.
Any students identified in the video will be subject to the Community Standards and can face a range of disciplinary actions.
Jonathan Pierce, a former international president of Alpha Epsilon Pi and the fraternity’s spokesman, said:
During this investigatory period, there can be no chapter activities.
We hope that we are able to use this as a teaching moment to help build better young men who are committed to our policies and our mission of developing the future leaders of the world’s Jewish communities.
