PETA Administers The 39th Lash To Michael Vick With A Festive Holiday Card

The People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals love their e-cards. As Ecorazzi reported earlier, Michael Vick is currently serving a 23-month jail sentence on dog fighting conspiracy charges.  Well in the spirit of the season, PETA has just released a brand new “holiday” card featuring Michael Vick in an orange jump suit locked inside of a snow globe designed to look like a prison with a ball and chain around his leg. Behind Vick is a guard with his  dog ferociously watching over him. When you visit the site you can “shake” the globe and watch Vick crash into the walls as a voiceover says, “They got to the quarterback’s blind side there. He never had a chance.”

Ok, If you’re familiar with some of my previous posts you know that I am a PETA member and supporter, but I think this is just plain tacky. Ok, we get it, Michael Vick seriously messed up and now he’s paying for his mistake. Do we really have to mock the guy with a festive card? The only holiday message this is sending is, “Na, na nee boo, boo”, and gloating is never attractive. Sometimes, PETA crosses that oh so delicate line and goes from helping to hurting. We got our point across guys, I have a feeling Vick will be staying far away from anything with four legs for a very long time. As we approach the end of 2007, we should be focusing on forgiving, not mocking. 

If you MUST see the card you can view it HERE.

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
