Tiger Woods is threatening to sue PETA (People for the Ethical Dispute of Animals) for using his image in a new ad campaign. PETA was in the process of putting up billboards that encouraged people owning pets to control the pet population while using Tiger as an example of sex gone wild. “Too much sex can be a bad thing for little tigers too," the billboards read. "Help your cats (and dogs) out of trouble: Always spay or neuter!”

PETA insists that it was not intended to mock Woods but to simply prevent millions of animals from being euthanized. “It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach. We hope these billboard companies will understand,” said Virginia Fort, an activist for PETA, told the Orlando Sentinel. “The world has been transfixed on Tiger’s life after Thanksgiving. We’re putting the focus where it needs to be. We’re sure Tiger will appreciate our attempt – from a story that’s distracted the world and followed Tiger – to turn it into something positive for little tigers.” Plans to run the billboards are currently on hold while lawyers for both sides sort things out. –NATASHA ALLOWAY
