PETA ruffled over Boston College eagle


A live bird mascot is ruffling some feathers at Boston College, where there’s an ongoing flap about whether it’s OK to have an endangered species on the sidelines. The awareness group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is squawking over a live bald eagle mascot at Alumni Stadium — a tradition that returned this year after spending 47 years with its wings clipped. PETA reportedly asked the US Fish & Wildlife Service to investigate whether Boston College's use of the bird is somehow ill-eagle. (FOX Sports)
