LOLs! We've GOTTA see this!
Animal Planet is teaming up with Mike Tyson for a series about the world of competitive pigeon racing — we're NOT kidding!
"I'm honored to be a part of this monumental show on Animal Planet," says Tyson. "I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fancier's out there. I want people to see why we love these birds. It feels good returning to the rooftops of the city where it all started for me - New York."
Apparently Tyson has been raising pigeons his whole life, but this series will chronicle his first steps into competitive pigeon racing! Marjorie Kaplan, president of Animal Planet Media, says:
"For years, he has been inspired by these birds that he feels have the biggest heart in the animal kingdom. Taking on Tyson peels back new layers of the remarkable persona and deep humanity of Mike Tyson while also showing us a whole world we never knew existed right on the rooftops of New York City."
But they're rats with wings!
