PETA Protests…Mario Bros?

 

 

As the preorders of Super Mario 3D Land come flying in this holiday season there is one major organization that will not be on the list. PETA.

PETA is protesting the Tanooki suit that Mario wears in the game. It was first introduced in 1988 in Super Mario Bros. 3.

According to PETA, “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.”

What do you think, is this a little extreme of a protest?
