NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has created a holiday e-card featuring former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, who is serving a 23-month federal sentence for a dogfighting conspiracy.
Vick and three co-defendants raised pit bulls and trained them for fighting at a house Vick owned in rural Surry County. Several dogs that didn't perform well in test fights were executed.
In the card, a cartoon version of Vick paces across a prison yard inside a snow globe as gun-toting guards and their barking dogs keep watch. He's wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and football helmet and dragging a ball and chain.
When a visitor to PETA's Web site shakes the snow globe by dragging a mouse, Vick bounces around and crashes against the globe's dome as a commentator announces, ``They got to the quarterback's blind side there. He never had a chance.''
``We're having a bit of fun, but prison is no lark and we're hoping that Michael will use his time behind bars this holiday season to think about goodwill and peace for all,'' PETA assistant director Dan Shannon said in a statement Tuesday.
Other famous people getting the snow-globe treatment include Dick Cheney, Kate Moss and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
