Motion to restrict Quidditch mascots defeated

Mascots have been a problem at several Quidditch matches. An attempt by the International Confederation of Wizards Quidditch Committee (ICWQC) to restrict the size and nature of mascots to “herbivores, creatures smaller than a cow and nothing that breathes fire” was defeated in 1995 (Pm).

Currently the ICWQC’s rulebook states “no dragon is to be introduced into the stadium for any purpose including, but not limited to, team mascot….” (Pm).
