PETA withdraws TV offer to Vick

NEW YORK (AP) - PETA has withdrawn an offer to televise an
anti-dogfighting public service announcement with Michael Vick
after his release from prison.

The Norfolk, Virginia-based organization says an agreement was
reached with Vick's representatives to shoot the spot. But PETA
says Vick's attorneys sought assurance that it would support Vick's
return to the NFL.

PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk says that doesn't cut it.

Newkirk says the NFL's commissioner has an obligation to the
league and to millions of fans to make sure that Vick is mentally
capable of remorse.

PETA is urging that Vick undergo a brain scan and a full
psychiatric evaluation.
