Live Mascot for the Tide?

Via SI on Campus, there is apparently an effort by the SGA to bring a live elephant to campus:

During a joint session between the First Year Council and the SGA Senate, the two bodies passed a resolution that will research bringing a live elephant to campus during football games to add school spirit.

The resolution cited other SEC schools, such as Auburn, Tennessee and LSU that bring an animal to campus for home football games.

The decision was only to create a group to research the idea, but that stirred debate between First Year Council members and SGA senators. Arguments ranged from logistics to animal rights before the resolution was affirmed.

"You can't just throw an elephant in the middle of the Quad. It has to be thought through," said Christy Adamson, a freshman majoring in international business.

This should end well.
