Bye-Bye Bulldog: Meet the New @DeSales Athletic Mascot

April Fool's from DeSales University
DeSales’ new mascot: the Grey-Crowned Crane

In honor of DeSales’ degrees now being offered in Tanzania (see previous story)  the administration has unanimously decided to change the DeSales mascot from the Bulldogs to the Grey crowned crane, or (Balearica regulorum), a species found in wetland-grassland habitats in Tanzania.

The change will take place for the 2015-2016 season.

“We’re super excited!!!” said one athlete. “And the best part is that they sort of ‘honk’ when they cry out and flap their wings. It’s going to be amazing to hear all that honking and see all that arm-flapping on the sidelines!!!”
