(WBIR-Knoxville, TN) -- A bizarre senior prank has horrified some students at a high school in Tennessee.

Pictures submitted by a student to our sister station WBIR show a dead raccoon hanging by its feet from a tree. Another shows one strung up on the school's flagpole.

Gibbs High School Principal Lynn Hill confirms the school is investigating, and says that appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office says they are also looking into the dead raccoons that were found on campus Wednesday morning.

They were called to the school at 8:39 am. Spokesperson Hillary Coward could not confirm how many of the animals were found.
