Fresh off their title win, Georgia has a new opponent - PETA. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals fired off a letter to University of Georgia president, Jere Morehead this week asking the school to replace its iconic English bulldog, Uga X, with a human at sporting events...
quote:

PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman released a statement on the matter ... saying, "As the back-to-back national champion, can’t UGA find it in its heart to honestly examine the impact of its promotion of deformed dogs and call time on its outdated, live-animal mascot program?"

"PETA is calling on Jere Morehead to be a peach and replace poor Uga with a human mascot who can support the team in a winning way."

First of all he isn’t locked up in Athens, he’s in his kennel in his home in Savannah. With his owners.

The caption says "locked in" as in focused, not "locked Up". Reading is Fundamental

They should reply that they agree, and will have Uga put to sleep. That would make their heads explode.

That dog has a better life than any of the purple haired fat girls who work for PETA. They're just trying to bring him down to their level.

PETA clearly doesn’t realize that no one gives a frick about their bull shite organization.

This is why so many people despise PETA. Youtube filled with neglected animal videos. But they focus on a spoiled dog living better than any other canine in the country.

It is a dog that hangs out and lives better than most other dogs. Why does PETA hate dogs so much?

Maybe they should turn their attention on he Michigan Muslim city that just voted for sacrificing household pets to Allah.

With millions of homeless animals in this country, there is zero reason to breed dogs, and particularly dogs whose faces are so severely deformed that they struggle just to breathe. Promoting the breeding and buying of bulldogs is shameful. And while I don't agree with forcing a dog to endure screaming crowds of strangers and all manner of other things that frighten them, if UGA insists on having a live dog mascot, they should at least have the decency to adopt and to encourage fans to do so as well.
