BITING BACK

PETA is having a cow over NBC's Siegfried & Roy: The Miracle special, in which Roy Horn told Maria Shriver that the tiger that attacked him was, um, protecting him. The animal-rights org claims the program was a "biased, misleading, thinly disguised promotion" of Father of the Pride. (Well, duh.) "Animals used for entertainment are beaten, caged, and deprived of all that is natural to them, so it's no wonder they sometimes snap," says PETA's top dog Ingrid Newkirk. "Viewers rely on NBC to give them the straight story, not fiction disguised as fact." Clearly, this woman has not seen LAX.
