BENNINGTON, Vt. - The government shutdown may be over, but a planned event in Bennington may have fallen victim to the long standoff.

The Bennington Catamount Prowl committee says it will postpone its gala and auction that was planned for next weekend.

The event has been rescheduled for next spring. They say it will allow time for things to return to a more normal atmosphere.

More than 30 fiberglass catamount sculptures have been on display throughout the town. Each one was creatively painted by local artists.
