Animal Planet should never have taken a chance on a show about a rat with wings… and his love for pigeons.
As we reported earlier, Mike Tyson has signed on for a new series with the network called Take on Tyson, which will document his initial attempts in entering the fascinating world of pigeon fighting.
However, the series, which was set to start shooting next month, maybe cancelled before it even begins as city officials of Brooklyn, NY are calling into question the legality of such a show. They claim that the series would violating local gambling laws. The District Attorney's office is hard at work looking to shut the show down.
No! Boo! We want to see Mike Tyson get all flustered for
peckers pigeons! Do not deny us this joy!
