PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) does not believe the bird Kelly Kraft hit leading to a double-bogey and a missed cut is to be blamed.

"PETA is glad the bird is OK and sorry Kelly Kraft didn't advance, but that's not the bird's fault," PETA representative Lisa Lange told USA Today. "Of course, he would have advanced if he'd played better on other holes - so practice, practice, practice."

Kraft disagrees.

"It cost me the cut, most likely," Kraft told PGATour.com. "I got screwed."

Kraft has now missed the cut in 40 of his 75 career PGA Tour starts. Not surprisingly, a bird was not involved in the other 39.
