KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A man who has performed as the Kansas City Chiefs' mascot for more than two decades is in stable condition after a weekend accident at Arrowhead Stadium. His attorney said Tuesday the injuries appear to have been caused by human error.
Dan Meers has played KC Wolf since the mascot's inception in 1989. He was seriously injured Saturday while rehearsing a zip line routine ahead of Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. No details about the injury have been released.
Attorney Tim Dollar says Meers' injuries appear to have been caused from how an outside company secured the riggings. He says an investigation is pending.
According to the website mascothalloffame.com, Meers previously performed as Fredbird, the St. Louis Cardinals' mascot, and the University of Missouri's mascot Truman the Tiger.
