A University of Pennsylvania fraternity was cleared Monday of camel-abuse allegations stemming from an April 15 party. Although the camel's owner also absolved the frat of any wrongdoing, she said the beast would not return to Zeta Psi.
One of several animals hired for the Spring Fling petting zoo, Kahn the camel was photographed lying on the ground as several young women stood by, plastic cups in hand.
George Leslie, a postdoctoral fellow at Penn's School of Medicine, snapped the picture and distributed it to media outlets. Leslie, 42, called the party, held near 34th and Walnut Streets, "a terrible scene."
