Mike Tyson’s Show Picking Up More Detractors
It hasn’t even started filming yet but Mike Tyson’s pigeon racing show on Animal Planet is now taking fire from, not surprisingly, PETA. We at 10,000 Birds first brought up the show here, which led to some interesting comments, and then Nate weighed in against it here. The piece about PETA’s objections mentions the “101 Dalmatians Syndrome” which is what happens when a pet is featured in the media; kids see them, harass their parents, get the pet, get bored, and the next thing you know, shelters are full of them! Will we see hordes of abandoned racing pigeons in the near future?
