Utah school scraps cougar mascot, calling it offensive to women
A school board in Draper, Utah overruled high school students' choice of a cougar as a school mascot, saying it was offensive to older women.
The word's double-meaning refers to an older woman who goes after younger men and has many parents worried. Some called the school board saying they didn't want their cheerleader kids to be called a cougar.
Instead, the students will be cheering on the "Chargers," a war horse.
