There's one cougar you won't see at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo. WSU Mascot Butch T. Cougar has been banned. The zoo will host nearly 600 online students and family members from Washington State University Global Campus on Saturday. So why won't Butch be among them? Zoo events manager Toni Godwin Sells says, "Seeing Butch walking around could trigger the zoo animals' predator or prey instinct."

See how the Cougs and Dawgs are reacting on Facebook and Twitter.
