Kellen Owens, who had roamed Elitch Gardens as the lovable dog since June, said he was laid off this week, along with friends who worked as Tweety, Bugs Bunny, Petunia the Piglet, Wile E. Coyote and others. "They told us it was budget cuts," said Owens, 18, who was at the park on Thursday with friends. "Six Flags is running low on money and we were the most expensive program."
