A vegan university student in Melbourne, Australia has had raw meat thrown at her by bullies.
Melis Layik, 18, who is studying at Monash University, moved out of her campus room after repeatedly finding raw meat in her bedroom.
Bullies had climbed through her bedroom window, and thrown livers and offal,, on her as she slept.
Layik also revealed that she once found a horse's heart at her bedroom door in Mannix College.
"That’s not normal behaviour - even if you hate someone, you just don’t do that," she told news outlet Herald Sun.
"For a long time, I was so emotional. Then it was more frustration that they didn’t do anything... the thing itself was really frightening."
She added: "It was just really disgusting to be honest, I was really shocked. I just want something to be done."
The student has raised concerns with the college, but she moved out this week after nothing was done.
Mannix College, which is an affiliated institution of Melbourne's Monash University, confirmed it is currently undertaking an 'ongoing investigation'.
