ND school accused of ripping off a Kern County Community College coyote logo

Williston High School's new coyote-head logo is causing an uproar

The Williston Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1mEGiad ) that the logo of the growling coyote already is in use at a community college in Ridgecrest, Calif.

Cerro Coso Community College spokeswoman Natalie Dorrell says her school was never contacted for permission to use the coyote-head logo, which is their school's mascot. She says it's unlikely the California school would have given permission anyway.

Dorrell says the school's lawyers are reviewing the issue.

Williston Superintendent Viola LaFontaine says the district received permission to use the logo from Cerro Coso's athletic director.

LaFontaine says the logos are different colors and the shape of the angry-looking animal's teeth and eyes are not the same.
