PETA is not pleased with Mike Tyson's new Animal Planet show about pigeon racing.
The animal welfare group wants New York City prosecutors to investigate Tyson's Brooklyn-based reality show, saying it is cruel to animals and its races could involve illegal gambling.
"Animal Planet needs more programs like Whale Wars and Animal Cops, in which people go to bat for animals, and fewer programs that showcase cruelty and profiteering at animals' expense," PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement.

Tony Dovolani was the only one in the dark. The Dancing with the Stars pro says he doesn't read casting rumors about the show, so the possibility of working with Kate Gosselin (a widely speculated pairing since they both live on the East Coast) never crossed his mind. "Everyone was thinking that except me!" he tells TVGuide.com. "I don't read rumors. If you do and set your heart on somebody and don't get them, or it turns out the person is not doing the show, then you're disappointed even if you get somebody great."
