PETA plans Tiger Woods billboard in Windermere

Ad promotes spay-and-neuter for pets

Animal-rights group PETA plans to unveil within the next few weeks a "cheeky spay-and-neuter" billboard featuring Tiger Woods — without the golfer's blessing.

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals is searching for a local advertiser to put up a billboard in Windermere, which will include an image of Woods and text: "Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing....For Little Tigers Too. Help Keep Your Cats (and Dogs) Out of Trouble: Always Spay or Neuter!"

It will be a challenge to find an advertiser to put up the sign, acknowledged Virginia Fort, a campaigner with PETA who is working on the project.

"It's a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach. We hope these billboard companies will understand," Fort said.

She said the billboard isn't meant to offend the golfer, his family or fans, but to prevent millions of cats and dogs from being euthanized at shelters each year.

"The world has been transfixed on Tiger's life after Thanksgiving. We're putting the focus where it needs to be," Fort said.

It's uncertain when the billboard would go up in Windermere but "the soonest would be in two weeks," she said.

Woods is not affiliated with PETA and has not endorsed the ad, Fort said.

"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," she said.

Woods' attorney, Mark NeJame, declined to comment. The golfer's agent, Mark Steinberg, and spokesman, Glenn Greenspan, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

I've never liked or agreed with PETA for any single thing they've ever done or tried to do until now. Hope this one goes up all over America!

What if they were the best looking ball washers in Atlantic City? Would that be applicable at all?

I understand Tiger paced around his rehab cage and decided to have his lawyers pounce on PETA and block the erection of this billboard. So... scratch that.
