There was a cougar sighting at 6:30 this morning at the Med Grill. Over the past hour and a half, police have scoured the area and have reported no additional sightings. They feel that the cougar has moved on and there is no immediate threat to our students. As a precaution, extra staff will be supervising during outside activies.
