Mountain Lion Expelled From Humboldt State

, , ,

An academically-inclined mountain lion (Felix concolor) recently took up residence on the sylvan campus of Humboldt State University in Arcata, California, denning up under a university office building, and apparently surviving on a cannibalistic diet of domestic tabbies. The puma had become so blasé where people were concerned, that he would insolently stop to groom himself when confronted by night shift campus police before disappearing into the night.

The trespassing cougar was finally tracked down, tranquillized, and rusticated far off campus by a posse comitatus led by University Professor of Wildlife Richard Golightly.
