The actual most West Virginia thing ever

I was obviously wrong when I referred to this thing was the most West Virginia thing ever; there is a previously-assumed-to-be-unattainable level of West Virginia that has been attained.

From an actual Associated Press story:
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia University has ordered its musket-toting mascot to stop using his university-issued weapon on hunting trips after an online video showed him killing a black bear.

In the video, Jonathan Kimble is shown firing the muzzle-loaded long gun at the bear in a tree. "Let's go Mountaineers!" Kimble yells afterward. He also posted a photo of himself with the bear on Twitter.

"While Jonathan Kimble's actions broke no laws or regulations, the university has discussed this with him, and he agrees that it would be appropriate to forgo using the musket in this way in the future," said WVU spokesman John Bolt.
Bolt added*, "He also agrees that it would be appropriate for him to wear his coonskin cap during all recreational activities and provide 50 percent of all school-musket-generated bear jerky to the university, as mandated by state law."

*Not really. But probably.
