Inflatable World Cup mascot removed after vandals keep stabbing it

Written by Jahmal Corner

Just so you know, the three-banded armadillo (the choice for mascot of the 2014 World Cup) is an endangered species. And, apparently, so is its inflatable version.

For the second time in less than a week some yahoo attacked the symbol of the games forcing it to be taken down from its spot near Brasilia’s Esplanade of the Ministries.

Last week another model was shanked in the southern city of Porto Alegre making this a violent trend.

The irony in all of this is that three-banded armadillos are unique in that they can roll into a ball to defend themselves from predators. Right … sure they can.
