The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are at it again, shifting their sites from Cooking Mama to the virtual big top.
PETA today launched a campaign to try and put a stop to Take-Two's Wii game featuring Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, saying that the famed circus is "looking to take its cruelty to animals virtual."
The organisation says that they've already told publisher Take-Two about Ringling Bros. "real life, lengthy history of animal abuse and neglect" and even shown them undercover video footage, but to no avail.
So now PETA is asking people to send a message to Take-Two CEO Ben Feder asking him to sever ties with Ringling Bros. and telling them they would rather play a game featuring a circus that "does not beat animals for entertainment."
Strong words. Though, I can't imagine Take-Two will listen to them. And frankly, the allegations levied against Ringling Bros. are hotly debated.
