The Arkansas School for the Deaf has a leopard for a mascot. So, they’re the Deaf Leopards!
This school has nothing to do with the band Def Leppard, they’ve been the Leopards since at least 1941, which is over a decade before singer Joe Elliott was born.
Someone at the school started a petition asking the band to stop by while they were in Little Rock for a gig. It got very few signatures, but the band saw the petition!
They were in Little Rock and unfortunately didn’t have time to stop at the school, but they DID take a photo with four athletes from the school.
The kids met with the band backstage, but didn’t actually go to the show.
So there ya go, the Deaf Leopards met Def Leppard, all is right in the world!
