PETA is taking issue with the University of Georgia and its bulldog mascot, Uga, tweeting that “HE LOOKS MISERABLE” and it’s time he’s sent to live with a “loving family”:
HE LOOKS MISERABLE!
No dog deserves to be packed up, carted from state to state, and paraded in front of a stadium full of screaming fans.

Because Uga’s air conditioned dog house and pampered lifestyle just isn’t good enough? From the UGA website:
Uga’s on-field home is a permanent air conditioned doghouse located next to the cheerleaders’ platform, providing comfort in the heat of August and September.
Honestly, is there a dog in America who has a better life than Uga?
UGA is literally the king of kings on how he is treated. He hit the gold mine for pups. Is there anything that dog does not have? https://t.co/fAk2Br5gSU

The 20 something intern who tweeted this has obviously never met a bulldog in the real life. Uga has a 100,000 member loving family. He so miserable he happily plays on the field during commercial breaks. Lord help em, I can’t fix their stupid but I can pray for em. https://t.co/N1vS7wNhD8

He looks like every other bulldog if you ask us:
It’s just a bulldog being a bulldog. https://t.co/dzqZMKAhyN

Uga is not miserable, he’s just a bulldog. They always look like that (I have one). He is in an air conditioned doghouse. He has his own car, room in a really nice house, family and is one of the most loved and lucky dogs in America. https://t.co/FLwoHnflKP

He’s not even in the rain:
The dog gets to take a nap in his private tent while all the humans stand in the rain. He's got it better than anyone in the whole stadium. https://t.co/rIxtfaYFM9

And let us not forget PETA’s history of killing shelter dogs:
You’re just mad you haven’t been able to kill this dog (yet). https://t.co/kNPCRsiUqm
