First things first, a cougar was loose on UMD’s campus. And we’re not talking about older women in halter tops hitting on your guy friends at tailgates. Here’s the Wonkette article, but below is text from the official UMD “Crime Alert.”

“UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

CAMPUS ALERT

July 31, 2008

There have been several reliable sightings of an animal fitting the
description of a cougar on the campus. The description of the sighted
cat is: light tan and tawny brown, about 4 feet long with a 4 foot tail,
and weighing about 50 pounds. Several sightings have been reported from
the area of Cole Field House, near the Clarice Smith Performing Arts
Center, and continuing through the wooded areas to the area of the
Comcast Center and Arena Drive Garage. There has been no report of
aggressive behavior on the part of the animal, but community members are
warned that cougars are a predatory species and that, if seen, the
animal should not be approached.

If you see the animal, please contact the university police at
301-405-3555. University police are working with other agencies to
remove the animal from the campus area.”

Also a town over, Berwyn Heights, the mayor’s house was raided by cops. (Here’s a follow-up from today’s Post)

Also on the same day in the WaPo, a narc turtle!!!

From Lauren, this article is not really the point, the insensitive grammar comments that follow the article are the point.
