Michael Jackson -- PETAphile?

11/27/2008 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson has turned his back on cardio-deprived giraffes, according to PETA.

When Neverland Ranch was essentially dismantled a year ago, a bunch of Jacko's pets -- including four giraffes -- were sold to an Arizona couple that wanted to start an animal sanctuary.

PETA claims the giraffes are stuck in cages barely as wide as the animals are tall. They wrote Jacko a letter asking him to help pressure the owners into doing something more humane.

The couple that owns the animals says the giraffes have been moved to their new 150 x 150 ft. digs -- and the animals will have an even bigger space to do whatever the hell it is that giraffes do when their 185 acre sanctuary is up and runnning.

All that aside -- the video of Jacko's old giraffe "Rambo" hittin' the bag to the "Rocky" theme song is worth a peek.

I haven't seen anything that big and lethargic at play since Camryn Manheim took up sumo wrestling.

Another tabloid story to crush the career of the biggest selling artist ever. When those animals left michael jackson they animals were said to be in perfect health. Stop dragging his name into this story. All the stories posted on michael jackson are completely made up and foolish people believe everything they read as if it was the gospel!

Ohh Mike look at the facts not fiction. Jesus Juice was made up my the media, it was proven in court that michael jackson never said it. Do you actually come onto this site and believe everything you read. Michael jackson is very private that means they have no stories on hm so they simply make them up. Get a life!

If it is true then why the story and not a prosecution. Because that is what they do when you abuse a horse, dog, etc.

Your headline is libelous. If I were MJ, I would be suing TMZ for that inflammatory play on words. You have crossed a line here.

What a loser. I hate people who buy exotic pets and then cannot manage to properly care for them. With the money he has to settle lawsuits, you would think he could build better accomodations or better yet....give them to a zoo or animal sanctuary. This just proves how selfish and clueless he is.

this is why exotic animals should NOT be pets!!!!!! now these beautiful girraffe's are caged inhumanley. =( hope jacko is proud of himself..these animals deserve to be free to roam in the land they're used too. Im a huge PETA supporter and i hope MORE can be done.

The Oregon Zoo lost a giraffe earlier this year and could use a replacement. Not that they read this, but I'm putting this out there. They have a big area to roam and one or two others to keep them company.

please why cant MJ sue such wicked people who write such nonesense about him.
So the media dont want to give him credit for caring for all these animals all these years but now the animals are no longer with him the media starts saying all these negative things,like they have ever given him credit for taking good care of the animals since.
