CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (AP) – Investigators are searching for whomever poured deer urine into an air conditioning unit at a school in eastern Tennessee.

About a dozen students became ill after the prank at Volunteer High School in Church Hill.

Firefighters were sent to the school Monday after the odor became overpowering in one classroom, and paramedics treated students who complained of headache and nausea.

Police Chief Mark Johnson says the stunt could result in a vandalism charge.

Deer urine is sold by the bottle to be used to attract the animals for hunting.
