Elephant predicts Cougars will win Apple Cup
On Tuesday morning, Nov 22, Chai, the Asian elephant at the Woodland Park Zoo, predicted that the WSU Cougars will win the Apple Cup.
Chai was given the choice between a pile of Husky or Cougar treats and with disappointment Husky fans watched as Chai headed to the Cougar pile fist without hesitation.
The piles were made of hay, elephant-sized papier mache apples, and football-shaped ice treats.
Last year Chai accurately predicted that the Huskies would win the game so fans are just going to have to wait until Friday to see if Chai's was right again.
The pachyderm prediction is a part of the zoo’s Apple Cup celebration and admission discount. From Nov. 21 through Nov. 27, Husky and Cougar fans can receive half off zoo admission by sporting any garb from University of Washington or Washington State University, such as a jersey, sweatshirt, hat or gloves, or showing a valid student ID from either university.
