(WSCR) The cougar may be one of the most furious animals on Earth, but it won’t be the mascot for one Utah high school.

According to a report, a new high school’s hope to call its team the Cougars was rejected because the members of the school board thought it would be offensive to some middle-aged women.

The word cougar has taken on a new meaning lately to describe an older woman who chases after a younger man.

So, it appears there will be no cougars at Corner Canyon High in the city of Draper when it opens in 2013.
