Question of the Day

Oct 9, 2014

Yesterday's question asked: Which university was attended by the intern involved in the Watergate scandal? That would be Brigham Young University, where this tidbit of trivia is well-established lore! In 1972, a 22- or 23-year-old BYU intern was working at the Democratic Headquarters when he "linked up with E. Howard Hunt" and became a spy for the Republican party. Strange, but true!

Congratulations to Paul Boyd for being the very first to answer that correctly! Honorable laurels go out to Chris BuonomoKen WalkerHollywood HighlandsAmy Zipkin and Osiris for also getting that exactly right.

As for today's question, here it is: This week the US Fish and Wildlife service revealed that this animal is facing threat of extinction and may be wiped out soon. Name the animal.
