PETA E-Card Pokes at Vick

Angry sports fans and animal lovers who've wanted to give Michael Vick a good shake now have their chance.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has created a holiday e-card featuring the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, who is serving a 23-month federal sentence for a dogfighting conspiracy.

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."

PETA assistant director Dan Shannon said Tuesday that the organization is "having a bit of fun."

Other famous people getting the snow globe treatment include Dick Cheney, Kate Moss and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
