People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is offering a unique – if unlikely – solution to 2009-2010 Mazda6 owners who have felt the bite of the company's recall to chase away gas-loving spiders. They want you to donate your ride to them. The animal-rights group is soliciting donations from any of the 52,000 affected Mazda customers who would rather see the spiders saved than murdered at the hands of mechanics.
Once they've chased the itsy-bitsy spiders from the car's evap pipe, PETA says they'll use the donated Mazda sedans to champion their cause. PETA says that this won't be the first time they've received cars from animal loving donors: a PETA member who was terrified of mice once donated a brand-new Jeep to the organization after she found a mouse living in it. The mouse was saved, just as the spiders will be.
