PETA Protest At Mike Tyson’s Home Over New Reality Show ‘Taking on Tyson’



The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals demonstrated outside Mike Tyson’s suburban home to protest the former boxing champion’s role in pigeon racing. A Henderson police spokesman said Tuesday the PETA demonstration on Monday outside Tyson’s gated hillside neighborhood was peaceful.
Some of the 20 protesters carried signs reading, “Featherweights: No match for a Heavyweight,” and “Mike doesn’t give pigeons a fighting chance.”


PETA’s Lisa Lange says the protest followed Sunday night’s debut of the Animal Planet show, Taking on Tyson. It features Tyson competing with pigeon racers in the New York City area.
Mike, a devout vegan and animal lover had no comment.
Is pigeon racing wrong?
