New PETA Games Give Power To The Pachyderms

PETA2 teaches children about the plight of circus-bound elephants with a pair of new flash games, giving the world's largest land mammals a chance to strike back against the clowns, trainers and circus CEOs that are keeping them down.

PETA2 is the kid's branch of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, so don't expect the blood and gore of previous PETA flash games showing up there. It's just good clean vengeance in Elephant's Revenge, which puts the player into the pillar-like feet of an elephant shooting peanuts at an advance army of prod-wielding circus employees.

The second game, aptly titled Match It!, is a memory match game with music composed by Video Games Live front man Tommy Tallarico, one of gaming's smaller land mammals.

"Considering how they attack elephants with bullhooks and electric prods, circus trainers would be lucky to get off with a mere peanut pelting," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Life in chains is no life at all, and the kindest thing that parents and kids can do is to steer clear of circuses that use animals."

Learn all about how PETA feels about the treatment of elephants in circuses and play both games at the Never Forget website.

    As a member of PETHBLP I find this game highly disturbing and morally repugnant and call for it's removal by PETA!!!!!!

    (people for the ethical treatment of humans by large pachyderms)

    Interesting how violence against animals is bad, but against humans is fine.

    Don't really have an opinion one way or another on these types of issues, but I do always with that PETA would STFU and GTFO.

    Wasn't there a study released last month that PETA were actually directly responsible for the deaths of more animals than they saved?

    If you care about animals you should put your money or time into the ASPCA in the US or the RSPCA in the UK and Australia.
