PETA calls on CU Boulder to stop using live animals as mascots
BOULDER, Colo. — Ralphie V, the live American buffalo mascot for the University of Colorado Boulder, is retiring. As the university looks for Ralphie VI, animal rights activists are calling on CU Boulder to stop using live animals as mascots. Ralphie running at football games has been a CU tradition for more than five decades. The university says all of the buffaloes are well taken care of. But that’s not good enough for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
