“Despite that nasty bite, it’s humans who rank as the deadliest predator of all,” writes PETA Associate Director Andrew Bernstein. “We hope you look after yourself, so we invite you to tackle any health problems with vegan foods and to be a champion to lobsters.”

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”

A copy of PETA’s letter to Sapp is below.

PETA’s letter to Warren Sapp follows.

Dear Warren,

We heard about your interception of a defensive shark’s lobster dinner, so we wanted to pass along some delicious cruelty-free vegan lobster in the hope that it’s a winner with you and yours. We don’t want you running back to the water until you’ve tasted it—sharks work as a team to obtain food, so unwanted competition may be awaiting you. Despite that nasty bite, it’s humans who rank as the deadliest predator of all. We hope you look after yourself, so we invite you to tackle any health problems with vegan foods and to be a champion of lobsters. All your fans at PETA are wishing you a speedy recovery.

Warm regards,

Andrew Bernstein and the PETA Team
