Pigeon Racing Mike Tyson Draws Complaints from PETA

Posted Monday March 7, 2011 4:42 PM GMT

Coming as little surprise, PETA isn't flying high over Mike Tyson's new Animal Planet project.

Having made its debut last night (March 6), "Taking on Tyson" features the boxer's entry into competitive pigeon racing.

In the series, the former heavyweight champion - who has a lifelong affection for pigeons - puts together a team of veterans who compete to race the birds.

In response to the televised efforts, members of PETA are said to be planning to protest outside Tyson's gated New Jersey Community.
