Berkner Rams on practice field: Facebook

Friday morning members of the Berkner High School band discovered a dead goat hanging from a goal post.

Lake Highlands High School and Berkner High School (a Richardson ISD school located just north of Lake Highlands) share the Wildcat-Ram football stadium at Lake Highlands High School. The dead animal was found on the Berkner campus, on the practice field. Richardson police are investigating the incident.

NBC 5 quoted one parent and former Berkner student who says she assumes this was a gruesome and cruel prank by rivals Plano East, the team Berker played (and lost to 34-13) in Plano Friday.

Berkner and LHHS play one another Sept. 27.
