WVU's Mascot Shoots Bear with Official Musket

In a YouTube video declared by Deadspin's Barry Petchesky as the "most West Virginia video ever," the West Virginia Mountaineer mascot is shown shooting a bear from a tree with his official school-issued musket. The mascot, senior Jonathan Kimble, was hunting in his native West Virginia and, obviously, had chosen a hound hunt as his tactic.The video has since been deleted by the user, but was reposted by Deadspin.
