EuGene Folklore: the wampus cat (35) RE: Folklore: the wampus cat 30 Jul 07


Arkie, do you have any idea how Conway HS came up with the wampus cat as a mascot?? It seems odd since those beasts don't seem to have been native to this area. Could it have something relating to the popularity of some of those folk songs noted earlier in this thread . . . maybe in light of those songs which were carried here from east Tennessee and the Carolinas, the wampus cat appellation came to note the mountain lions/panthers once more common to central Arkansas (now pretty much limited to the Ozarks in the north of the state). Just a'wonderin'. Eu
