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...
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can’t UGA find it in its heart to honestly examine the impact of its promotion of deformed dogs and call time on its outdated, live-animal mascot program?"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."
