Brigham Young University isn’t the only home for cougars in Utah. Just ask this prison

Captured from Twitter

The Utah Department of Corrections might have one more guard to add to its payroll.

The organization tweeted out a picture Friday night of a cougar seemingly patrolling the outside of the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison, Utah. The cougar was shown on surveillance footage.

The prison opened in 1990 and houses up to 1,600 male inmates at a time.

For those wondering, the Central Utah Correctional Facility is about 82 miles away from Provo, home of the Brigham Young University Cougars.
