NEW YORK (AP) -- An animal welfare group wants New York City prosecutors to investigate boxing great Mike Tyson's upcoming reality television show about pigeon racing.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals alleges the Brooklyn-based show is cruel to animals. It says races likely will involve illegal gambling.
The show will follow Tyson as he competes in pigeon races. The former world heavyweight champ has raised pigeons all his life but is a racing rookie.
The show is slated to air next year on Animal Planet.
Network representatives haven't responded to an e-mail seeking comment. Tyson's representatives can't be reached by telephone.
PETA sent a letter dated March 18 to the Brooklyn district attorney's office requesting an investigation.
District attorney spokesman Jonah Bruno says the office is looking into the allegations.
