RADFORD, Va. (AP) - Fraternity leaders have blasted Radford University after school officials lifted a suspension on the fourth fraternity that was being investigated amid accusations that a goat had been abused.

Alpha Sigma Phi chapter President Andrew Friedman wrote in a news release that the accusation last month that fraternity members had mistreated a goat was false and a “huge distraction” before final exams.

Alpha Sigma Phi President and CEO Gordy Heminger says the organization is “strongly considering” filing a defamation lawsuit against the school.

Radford University spokesman Joe Carpenter confirmed to the Roanoke Times (https://bit.ly/2k4BHiR) that the fraternity’s interim suspension was lifted Jan. 10. He says school officials are still looking into the situation.

Three other fraternities that had also been suspended amid the investigation had their suspensions lifted Dec. 22.
