An animal rights group has abandoned plans to put up a billboard in Florida with a not-so-veiled reference to a shark attack on a boy.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wanted the billboard to say: quote ``Would you give your right arm to know why sharks attack? Could it be revenge? Go vegetarian.''
A bull shark bit off Jessie Arbogast's right arm on July sixth. Surgeons reattached the arm, but the attack has left the eight-year-old in a light coma.
