Are animal names next?

Chowan drops Braves mascot to comply with NCAA ruling - Yahoo! Sports

"The NCAA ruling affected 18 schools, including Catawba College in Salisbury, which uses the nickname Indians. Only the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, which also uses the nickname Braves, was exempt from the decision. The school was founded as a college for Indians.
"Other colleges, such as Florida State and Utah, won appeals to keep their mascots because of support from Indian tribes."


Let's see now, there are the LSU Tigers.

Or how about the Nitnany Lions?

Baylor Bears anyone? Of couse a lot more!


Maybe PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) (link) needs to get involved here! A new crusade for them.

For sure I don't eat veal or foie gras anymore. Read up on this at all-creatures.orgAnimal Issues Article Series

Horay for B.J. and Tyler!!!!!!
