Mario Lemieux is replacing Ben Roethlisberger, at least at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.
The image of Big Ben has been used in a display on the pathway leading to the elephant barn. The graphic compares the height of the elephants to other creatures.
The Steelers quarterback was still at the zoo on Thursday, but a new sign has been made using the image of hockey great Mario Lemieux and will replace the Roethlisberger piece of the exhibit.
Asked if the display change has anything to do with current events, a zoo spokesman said, "well, we have had some calls."
"Mr. Roethlisberger isn't the most popular person lately," said Tracy Gray, manager of public and media relations.
