Animal rights groups are demanding the prosecution and expulsion of a
University of Georgia student who allegedly killed a raccoon that was then
skinned, eaten and burned by members of his fraternity.

Patrick Rives, animal control superintendent for Athens-Clarke County,
said Tuesday that he would submit an arrest warrant application this week
to a magistrate judge. If the judge approves the application and if
student Erik Robert Zimmerman were convicted of animal cruelty, Zimmerman
could face up to 12 months in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000.
