*People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals thought it would be a great idea to use Tiger Woods in its campaign urging cat and dog owners to neuter their pets.
The animal rights group planned to put a billboard up in Tiger’s Windermere, Fla. neighborhood that featured his face and the slogan, “Too much sex can be a bad thing.” But lawyers for the golfer threatened to sue the activists if they used his image, according to the New York Post.
A PETA source told Page Six, “We were contacted by Tiger’s lawyers at IMG who kindly, but firmly, told us we were not authorized to use his image on the billboard, and would we desist. We agreed and have now turned the focus of our campaign to Mark Sanford.”
PETA says it will now feature the philandering South Carolina Governor, with the possible tagline: “Your dog doesn’t have to go to South America to get laid.”
