The Jacksonville Jaguars head football coach Gus Bradley said he is grateful for the efforts of his team’s baby guinea pigs.
The Jaguars announced Thursday that the baby guineas born in intensive care in June were healthy and were expected to make a full recovery.
The team said in a statement the guinea fowl were released into the wild after being rescued from the Tennessee Valley Authority’s animal hospital.
They were put on a plane and flown to Florida, where they were picked up by a rescue organization.
The baby guines are part of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ “Baby Guinea Pigs” project.
The group hopes to raise money to provide more guinea-pigs to the zoo.
The zoo has not released any information on their health.
