PCC’s Poppe Panther

The Panther mascot at Portland Community College is really strutting his stuff as of late. He’s got a new video on YouTube.com and is pawing the latest happenings into Twitter. This is quite a break from the reclusive behavior I had been accustomed to from our Panther. Once rarely seen in the wilds on campus, Poppe is now spotted commonly on campus and across the Web.

Poppe Panther and his brethren form a proud ink of panthers to be mascots of schools. While I am aware of professional and university panther mascots, I was not aware of the population of panthers touting the mission of community colleges.
