PETA Fights Call Of Duty Dog Killing With Nintendogs

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have thrown their support behind the Academy of Notre Dame student protest against dog killing in Call of Duty: World at War.

To show their support to the student group that organised a petition to voice their disgust over the shooting of killer guard dogs in Activision's latest Call of Duty game, Peta sent Activision a care package... that is, a package that tries to teach them how to care.

To help the folks at Activision Blizzard learn about the ethical treatment of animals (something we're sorta experts on) we're offering to let them take PETA's "Developing Empathy for Animals" seminar free of charge, and we're sending a package of dog-friendly Nintendogs games to their office.

With a little Nintendogs influence, perhaps the next Call of Duty game will have you unlock achievements for petting the dogs you encounter and going on walks or playing Frisbee with them.

I think that's a great idea! Why don't we do this instead - go through all of the history books and documentation concerning the military application of dogs during World War II, and just erase it all. We don't want impressionable gamers getting the wrong impression of Nazi Germany, now do we? We could splice footage of people being lined up and marched into cement buildings with clips of people enjoying a puppet show! A few new lines of voice over dialogue and presto! The world is a much happier place.

Bah. Not going to argue realism with PETA. That's like going to a rave and trying to convince the kids there not to do drugs. They're already far too gone to understand what you're saying.

Also, I'd just like to give a pat on the back to the commentor that called PETA's response within the first few comments of the original post. You've officially earned an entire day of being an insufferable, gloating bastard. Enjoy!

    these guys make me embarassed to be a vegetarian

    @ ghost1
    It's nice to see a vegetarian say that, because I've not had any respect for PETA for quite some time now. Almost everything I see them doing now is just shock value with absolutely no substance.

    so.... killing enemy dogs in a game is a travesty, yet killing hundreds of enemy soldiers.... that doesn't seem to bad at all.

    These people are ridiculous! They are more concerned over the killings of dogs than people!!! In any case you are only force to kill dogs in self-defense rather than just killing them for pleasure and on top of that it isn't a constant thing. A person has to receive 7 kills in a row to get the dogs.

    @danmazkin

    Reminds me of that joke:
    "I'm going to be hitler on day. I'll kill 10 Million Jews, and two clowns."
    "Why two clowns?"
    "See, no one cares about the jews!"

    Except, in this case, the anti-semitism is replaced by sheer retardery. :D

    I do think PETA has gone too far in many cases .. BUT .. I would not buy this game because I don't want to see that kind of stuff in my games. Mowing down people for some reason (in games) doesn't seem to bother me. I think it's because the people are (usually) bad and we all know there are no bad dogs, only bad owners.

    There actions are doing exactly what they want it to do .. get them in the news. Stuff like this generates interest from the public ... they need attention to promote their beliefs .. they need you to keep watching them so that they can try to get more people to react with them. As for the actions of PETA ... All people are different ..
