The story of why UF no longer has a live Alligator mascot
In the last decade, Florida Gator football has reached heights that few programs can even imagine. But football success at the University of Florida is not only a recent phenomenon. Floridas winning tradition was established early, as the Gators went 49-18-5 during their first ten seasons (1906-15). These are the never before told tales of that tradition.

Our Eagle used to stay in a cage.
I believe someone tried to shoot it.
I'm Rich Biotch
btw, that is horrible.
You gotta be kidding me?
I know the eagle once tried to bite Wes Chandler
I believe one was actually shot and killed. Not in it's cage. It had gotten out.
"During the week prior to Auburn's game against Alabama in 1964, War Eagle III broke free and landed in a nearby backyard. The owner of the property shot and killed the eagle claiming it was attacking his children."

Fearless and true.
Must of been a Bama fan, you know that Eagles are natural predators to rodents? amirite??
Probably Updyke's pa.
I'm not familiar with our Eagle being shot at but it is a fact the old eagle cage was located between Haley Center and Parker Hall. While I was in school in the mid to late 70's I'd often stop by the cage and observe War Eagle IV, it was aewsome and didn't even seem like a big deal. Hell if that was the case today some updyke would have already shot the bird or poisoned it or inflicted some kind of harm to it.
