Pierre the Pelican mascot is drawing some fierce criticism

So the Pelicans came up short in their season opener, but what’s really got people talking today is the new pelican mascot.

Maybe he’s just in the Halloween spirit, but Pierre the Pelican is sure giving people nightmares!

The Louisiana state bird is drawing some less than favorable comparisons, even Photoshopped into a few scenes from some of our favorite movies. He’s even featured in a Twitter account (@Pierre_Pelican … which we’re pretty sure is NOT his official Twitter account, but it sure is funny!).
