(from M Zone wire reports) Montgomery, AL -- Fallout over the publication of the "Bear" Bryant cartoons continues to mount as Zeta Tau Alpha sorority sisters at Auburn University - Montgomery were forced into hiding after 'Bama fans learned they laughed at the infamous drawings.
As this photo clearly shows and the M Zone has confirmed, the entire AU-M Zeta Tau Alpha chapter has assumed new identities and entered the Witness Protection Program as of Thursday night. According to unnamed sources, the trouble started when Heather Anderson of Mobile, a sophomore pledge, said, "Um, like, those were pretty funny" after seeing the pictures on Michiganzone.net. Upon hearing of her "insensitive" remark, Brett Johnson, the Sigma Chi President at the University of Alabama put a $4.95 bounty on Ms. Anderson as well as "any of those other ZTA chicks."
When word of the threat reached their house, the ZTA sisters immediately went into hiding, even though they might have to miss Spring Formal '06 at the Montgomery Holiday Inn. Senior Lisa Kenowski, who already had a date lined up and her dress picked out, called it, "A devastating blow."
AU-M officials declined comment.
