Default ravens training real ravens as mascots

Associated Press


BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Ravens fans could see real ravens this season.





A trainer in Georgia is working with two eight-week old ravens, hoping to have them
ready to fly around M&T Bank Stadium before home games this season.




Ravens officials plan to have one of the birds fly out of the tunnel players use to run
onto the field.





The Ravens' vice president for marketing, Gabrielle Dow, thought of the idea
after seeing a trained hawk at a Seattle Seahawks game.





Trainer Daniel Walthers says he is even teaching the birds to mimic the words "touchdown," and "Go Ravens.



"

The birds are not native to Baltimore.



They are an African variety because it is
illegal to keep or train migratory birds native to this country.





MY TWO AND A HALF CENTS:


Ideas on what you could train the birds to say:


No O in Baltimre , so says the raven nevermore !

Illegal ? ratbirds don't even know the meaning of the word!

Our QB's suck thats why our genius of a coach was fired

They keep me incarcerated, with this team I fit in well



............... if you think of a phrase you could teach the birds feel free to share!

24 pack of I.C. beer for before the game - $15
Ravens ticket for peanut gallery, upper, upper bleachers - $59
Folding pellet gun w/ scope to sneak in stadium and shoot crow mascots in mid-filght - PRICELESS
