School Vetos Cougar Mascot Due To Offensive Nature

(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.

    W T F!!! This is taking PC too far. Naming a school mascot after a fierce creature isn’t allowed anymore because it has a secondary term that most middle school kids don’t give a rat’s a– about.


    Call them the Fluffy Rainbows. Or the Endagered Owls.

    This is ridiculous. This is what the students want. The community needs to grow up.

    How many middle-aged women are truly offended by this term? It is less offensive than the other feline term used to refer to women.
