r he number of pets found on the university campus was a considerable contribution to the average 20,000 population of the university community.
Dogs, cats, snakes, fish, skunks, turtles and hamsters took up residence with a friend in his or her dorm for the semester, or just visited for a few days until discovered by authorities.
All animals, except those having official business, such as seeing-eye dogs, were prohibited from entering most buildings. But the "bouncers" and those silly "no admittance" signs didn't keep the "troops" from filtering into dorm rooms, classrooms or the library every now and then.
One animal (a skunk) became quite a celebrity as a result of it's master's many attempts to keep it in the dorm with her. An article was written in the Kernel, UK's independent student newspaper, uncovering the adventures of the stowaway. 7f
