    A PETA advertising campaign featuring shamed golfer Tiger Woods is off, at least for now.

    "In light of conversations we have had with Mr. Woods' attorneys," PETA told TMZ.com earlier today, "plans to run our billboard are on hold at this time."

    The outrageous new PETA billboard was set to go up near his Windemere home, ensuring the shame would stay on the minds of at least a few motorists.

    "Too much sex can be a bad thing," the billboard reads in big black and white letters, "...for little tigers too."

    Next to the words are a photo of the golfer with his hands on his hips and a rather unpleasant look on his face.

    "Help keep your cats (and dogs) out of trouble: Always spay or neuter!" the tag line reads.

    "It's a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach. We hope these billboard companies will understand," PETA's Virginia Fort told the Orlando Sentinel, adding that the ad is more about cats and dogs, not Tiger. "The world has been transfixed on Tiger's life after Thanksgiving. We're putting the focus where it needs to be."
