When Mascots Attack: Oregon Duck Assaults Houston Cougar: The Oregon Duck has been suspended for one game after getting into a fight with the Houston Cougar during their Sept. 1 football game. The brawl included punches, a takedown, and a move that appears to be hot duck-on-cougar action (fan video). Witness Bob Welch: "From my vantage point in Row 36 a few sections away, the Duck appeared to kick the Cougar in the side, then strut away toward the stands. The Cougar tackled the Duck from behind. What followed -- the footage that made YouTube -- was a 20-second pummeling of the Cougar by the Duck." The Daily Kansan has more mascot violence.
