The University of Houston Cougars are getting a real live cougar to inspire school spirit at football games.

'Shasta' is a six-month-old cub at the Houston Zoo. The zoo and the university have partnered to make Shasta the school's mascot.

Since it's not practical to have an actual cougar on the sidelines, Shasta will make his appearances via a web camera live from the Houston Zoo.
