Zoo changes animal names after complaints





June 15, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports



ROYAL OAK, Mich. -- Some University of Michigan backers weren't amused to learn the Detroit Zoo's baby wolverines had been given nicknames of rival Big Ten teams.

After receiving several dozen complaints, including threats to cancel memberships or reduce donations, the zoo renamed the 3-month-old kits last week.

A zookeeper who graduated from Michigan State University had named the kits Sparty -- for the MSU mascot -- and Bucky, either for the Wisconsin Badger mascot or a variation on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

"We got some e-mail and phone calls from zoo visitors and the general public who were deeply offended by the names," zoo spokeswoman Rana Kozouz told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday. "So we changed the names to Tamarack and Tilia, the names of Michigan trees."

Heh. The same thing happened at "Boone Pickens Stadium". Someone put an OU logo in bricks. (At Oklahoma States stadium).

It'll have to suffice until we meet again. If you guys wouldn't have been such pussies and lost to O$U in 2003 we woulda seen you in the Fiesta. :)

But since you are an ISU basketball fan, i'll have to remit the scoreboard. The clones beat KSU the last meeting. :p

Well, obviously. But is it referring to something? Do locals pronounce it strangely? I don't get it.

The boosters up there are fuggin idiots. A few years ago they put a big "halo" of Maize and Blue around the stadium, it actually looked cool. But the boosters felt that it looked too "new" so they pulled their money (or threatened to) and the U removed it. fuggin idiots

The only thing more lame that bitching about the animals' names is someone posting it on a completely unrelated message board giggling to himself.
