Well, here we are. Pierre the Pelican's days as a soul-devouring bird of terror are over. The Pelicans revealed their new-look mascot last night, and Pierre is now a perfectly acceptable mascot that finally resembles an actual pelican. The children of New Orleans can sleep a little easier now.
Pierre the Pelican has just emerged from the "surgery" he underwent in order to become less of a nightmarish hellbird. This isn't really making seem that much more cuddly, Pelicans!
This is Pierre the Pelican, the mascot that the New Orleans Pelicans have chosen to represent the team's totally badass namesake. Pierre the Pelican is not badass and does not really look like a Pelican. He is terrifying and awful.
