BUCKS COUNTY, PA — School officials in Bucks County are warning parents of a "very inappropriate" video that is circulating among area students.
The viral video, which has drawn warnings from multiple school superintendents, depicts an illegal sexual act with an animal, officials from Council Rock told parents in an emailed message.
Authorities are investigating the origin of the video.
In a message to parents, Council Rock Superintendent Robert Fraser said the video has been shared and viewed by students throughout the area. "I ask that you that you please be sure that your child does not download or share the video if he/she should receive it," Fraser wrote.
"Any individual in possession of the video or who is found to have shared it via phone, email, or social media could be subject to criminal charges," according to Fraser.
A similar warning was issued by Pennridge School District administrators.
"I am asking that you speak with your children about the hazards of downloading, circulating, or viewing any type of illegal content," a letter sent to Pennridge School District parents said, according to a report by The Intelligencer. "The consequences can be life-altering."
School officials with the Quakertown Community School District and the Palisades School District have also issued warnings, the report said.
