PETA Calls for University of Georgia to Remove Their Mascot Fans and students of the University of Georgia are not happy with PETA. Since 1956, the University has used real life bulldogs as their mascot named Uga. The dogs are treated very good. Sports Illustrated named Uga the Greatest Mascot in college football history. After seeing recent footage of Uga in his doghouse during a stormy game PETA has demanded that the University retire Uga.

PETA took to Twitter and wrote, he looks miserable. No dog deserves to be packed up, carted from state to state and paraded in front of a stadium filled with screaming fans. Animals are not mascots. The tweet continued with PETA saying Uga should be retired and home with a loving family. They received backlash from fans saying bulldogs naturally make those facial expressions and that Uga is treated great.

What do you think, should Uga be retired?
