PETA attacks Nintendo over fur-wearing Mario

PETA attacks Nintendo for its latest game, Super Mario 3D Land for its Nintendo 3DS system, stating “tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur”. The famed plumber Mario wears a furry raccoon-like “Tanooki suit” allowing him to float around in the air swatting his tail around at a host of bad guys. For the record the game never suggests Mario slaughtered animals within the game for his fur-suit, but swatting a fly will get PETA knocking at your door, too.

However the real turn-taker is where PETA themselves place “Super Nanooki Skin 2D” game on its web site allowing visitors to play the game.

It’s hard to believe that the folks over at PETA truly believe that a video game starring tiny man in a magical children’s costume actually contributes to worldwide fur wearing. If they did believe Nintendo’s new game had that kind of impact on behavior, then they should have also mentioned Mario’s abuse of the turtle-like Koopa creatures.
