  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

Missing falcon specimen subject of ongoing investigation

The University Police Department is investigating the theft of a peregrine falcon specimen, which was removed from a display case on the third floor of the Life Sciences building sometime between Nov. 8 and Nov. 13.

The falcon was part of the biological sciences department’s Ornithology Collection of more than 2,400 birds, according to a University press release. About 1,100 specimens are on display on the third and fourth floors of the Life Sciences Building.

While the exact age of the missing falcon is unknown, it is one of the older parts of the collection. It is still used for teaching and research at the University.

The peregrine falcon has been the University’s official mascot since 1927.

If found, the bird may be returned to the Department of Biological Sciences in Room 217 of the Life Sciences Building. A message about its location can be left at 419-372-2332. Anyone with information about the missing falcon may also contact the University Police Department at 419-372-2346.
