Deer urine prank makes Tennessee students sick

Church Hill, TN. (AP) -- Officials are searching for a person who poured deer urine into an air-conditioning unit as a prank and made about a dozen students ill at an East Tennessee high school.

The Church Hill Fire Department was called to Volunteer High School on Monday after the odor became overpowering in one classroom.

Paramedics treated students who complained of headache and nausea.
They recovered after getting some fresh air.

Firefighters shut down the air-conditioning units near the special education room to discover the source.

Police Chief Mark Johnson said the prank could result in a vandalism charge. Bottled deer urine is used to attract the animals for hunting.
