PETA Urges Robotic Mascot Replacement


PETA seems to be at it again. Earlier they applauded the efforts of the St. Louis Zoo for replacing their polar bears with robobears, and now they are suggesting that the University of Georgia exchange their deceased bulldog mascot with an animatronic one. Assistant Director Kristie Phelps claimed, "It is time for the university to put an end to the cycle of suffering endured by dogs who are brought into the world solely to represent the school's 'brand'."

We poo-poo the comment and bet that the mascot was much loved and spoiled by all the attention.
