  • Lawrence police are investigating reports that members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at the University of Kansas abused and killed a turkey at a party.
    Police said Monday they received a report of possible animal cruelty at a party that drew about 150 people Friday night.
    The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/R3b6Sw ) witnesses said the some fraternity members broke the turkey's cage, chased the animal, choked it and broke its wing and a leg.
    Police say they were told a fraternity member killed the bird to end its suffering.
    A message left after hours for the Beta Theta Pi Foundation and Administrative Office wasn't immediately returned.
    The university said in a statement that the fraternity's national chapter and the KU Interfraternity Council also are investigating the complaint.
