Actually, these ominous-looking, hog-riding, crime-fighting softies call themselves Rescue Ink and are the latest recipient of PETA's Compassionate Action Award.
In New York City and surrounding areas, this burly clan responds to emergency calls day and night. And for no charge, they will show up at the doors of any would-be animal abusers to strike knee-knocking fear into what's left of their hearts in behalf of voiceless animals.
In addition to making abusive animal guardians piddle themselves, their service to the community is far-reaching. From search and rescue missions to giving out free doghouses or simply providing the elderly with cat food, no animal is overlooked.
