PETA Targets Mario for Tanooki Abuse

Quote:
IGN.COM - http://uk.ds.ign.com/articles/121/1212427p1.html
PETA - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - is known for taking some wild stands against various forms of entertainment. But its most recent target is a rather surprising one - everyone's favorite plumber, Mario.

In a mini-site called Mario Kills Tanooki, PETA is lampooning the plumber for his new Tanooki Tail Power-Suit, claiming it encourages the wearing of fur.

"When on a mission to rescue the princess, Mario has been known to use any means necessary to defeat his enemy - even wearing the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers," the site asserts. "Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur."

The site also includes a poorly-made mini-game in which a skinned Tanooki tries to chase down Mario to get his fur back, pictured below.



We're all for animal rights, but seriously, PETA. You're going after Mario?!

And here we thought Mario got the Power-Suit from a Super Leaf that transformed him into Tanooki Mario. Our mistake. I suppose this means he skinned a giant bee for his Bee Suit in Super Mario Galaxy 2… and I tremble to think as to the real source of his bunny ears in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.

Some people will buy anything these days, whats your thoughts on these idiots?

Seriously,? I mean animal rights are important but this game has nothing to do about the abuse of this animal. The suit symbolizes to us gamers as a power up item which of course came from a magical leaf and not from a dead animal. These people need to stop overreacting to every little thing, this suit is made for pure fantasy. These people need to see how there is a difference in this game: Its a magical suit FROM A LEAF NOT A ANIMAL! I would understand if in the game it actually came from a dead animal but in this case it's not. Nintendo would not be so heartless as to showing that violence from animal abuse. Mario is just a game for all ages to enjoy not to hate and insult so I say to these people " LEAVE MARIO ALONE"!

i can understand that they love animals and everything, but it seems like PETA's funds and ideology are in the wrong direction. instead of protesting and slandering video games, movies and commercials, why don't they spend that time and money on, say, stopping the actual problem?

but tanukis are skinned alive? that's not awesome

God damn it PETA, you will stop at nothing to troll people, will you?
Next you'll target The Legend of Zelda for abuse towards wolves or some stupid shit like that.
On a final note, f*ck you PETA.
