The media learned on Saturday that Saibi High School in Matsuyama, Ehime was investigating bullying incidents involving a first- and second- year student on the school baseball team.
According to reports, a second-year student forced a first-year student into doing various things, like eat a stink bugs (kamemushi). The older student also allegedly tried to get the younger student to drink kerosene.
An outside source informed school officials about the incidents earlier this month. When the school checked with the baseball team on the 7th, they learned parents of the first-year student had already spoken to the manager. The first-year student claimed he was a victim when approached by school officials on the 8th.
The school has filed a report with the Ehime High School Baseball Federation.
