"What does the word "cougar" mean to you? To some people, it means "a large, tawny cat, Felis concolor, of North and South America." To others, apparently including a Utah school board, it means "an older woman who seeks sexual relationships with younger men."
Both definitions (the above wording is from dictionary.com) are in current use, and one Utah school district was taking no chances on snickers or outright mockery from the community -- or athletic opponents. It overruled a student vote to adopt the Cougar as the school's new mascot because the word can be considered a derogatory term."

Smart move; when I think of BYU Cougars, I immediately think of sexually aggressive older women
