Arachnophobic Mazda6 Drivers Asked to Donate Cars to PETA

A shocking news surfaced the web a few days ago when Mazda started a recall because it discovered that some spiders could cause gas leaks and fires in some Mazda6 owners. Well, if you're the kind of man that suffers from arachnophobia or you simply believe that cruelty isn't something to associate with spiders, PETA has an interesting solution for you.

Donate you car to PETA and a member will take the spider out of the fuel system. Manually!

"Here's something that you may not know: If you're suffering from arachnophobia, PETA will be more than happy to help you out … by accepting your donated vehicle for use in animal rescue work," PETA said in a statement published on its official website.

We know it sounds weird, but it seems like this isn't a new thing for PETA, as similar cases took place in the past and, as far as the organization is concerned, it should continue in the future as long as animals or insects aren't hurt.

"A PETA member who was deathly afraid of mice once donated her brand-new Jeep to PETA after a mouse popped out from beneath the glove box. PETA gladly accepted both the Jeep and the mouse and will do the same for your Mazda6. And for the spiders who call it home, we'll also do our best to get them out safely and find them new homes."

If you're one of the more than 65,000 Mazda6 affected drivers, you can read more on the recall by following this link.
