    They must really hate World of Warcraft as well! There's a daily quest in Highmountain that has players kicking fish, that are flopping on the bank, back into the river. It sometimes takes multiple kicks to get them in. Is that now to be considered animal abuse?! :ROFLMAO: ROFL

    We need to dress up all the members of PETA like baby seals.

    Uh, most AAA games these days involves mass murder of humans. Not monsters or some humanoid abstraction, people. And players don't even flinch.

    I'm not saying there's a link to real life violence or anything, but we are DEFINITELY desensitized to violent media now.

    nothing to be sensitive enough...unless your from those holier-than-thau, prudish religiously-societies where everything is sensitive. ( well except for those religiously motivated violence)

    Bingo. Virtual fishing is not ethical. Virtual killing of people is okay. Time for PETA to seriously reconsider what they stand for and how to best use their time. This looked like a press grab on their part, but I think it will backfire.

    Funny thing is that I've personally found out that those types of communities are more prone to actually carrying out violence than those they point fingers at.

    I wouldn't kill the animals if they weren't always trying to kill me. Let PETA try walking through the Montana wilderness without being attacked by a wolverine or a skunk, and see how they like it! Digital animals are so intolerant.

    PETA recommends against having bunnies as pets, they mention a bunch of pretty awful things about how bunnies just suffer as pets.. my wife got it anyway.
    They are full so full of shit, that is one happy bunny, eating and relaxing, like to be petted you know normally, comes to you for attention kind of like a dog and everything (this is dwarf bunny)...you just don't pet it like an idiot of course, its clear what she likes and doesn't.

    The fish are actually the only animal in the game you DON'T KILL, you only CATCH.

    I am all for murdering 100's of animals if it means saving ONE human life. I like to say I belong to an alternative PETA as well: People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.

    I had to read this twice...first time through I read anus....its been a long day.

    Sad that they are all up in arms about a video game. They should be fine with this because its actually not harming anything REAL.......

    Anyone else read those leaked PETA notes from some of their meetings from way back in the day? They sued that guy or tried to. Details are all fuzzy now.

    All they talk about is how press makes them money. Any press at all. For the entire 50+ minutes. Press = money. .. press = money. Pull the chain, money falls from the sky.

    They don't talk about whales or dolphins, fur, none of that.

    You think they really give a F' about digital fish? LMAO ... no, press = donations = money.

    Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge from 2 or 3 years ago? That entire shindig got audited and it was discovered that maybe 10% of all that money made it to research?

    All these guys are doing is working a hustle like anyone else. It's literally no different than Ice Berg Slim pulling up to 6th and Main and screaming at his hoes for mo' money.

    And a lot of you guys take PETA so seriously and discuss them with such meaning and intent. Some of you guys need to up your BS Filter / Radar game.

    yeah, even a brief googling of the history of peta will quickly tell you they couldnt give 2 shits about animals, not on the scale they themselves slaughter them. No, its ALL about donations.

    In honor of this, I will buy the game next paycheck. Doing my small part to make PETA seem less relevant.

    PETA is making the same mistake a lot people make, that what goes on in a video game equates to anything in real life. I wish people would read the studies about this.

    As far a PETA they do some good stuff, helping to expose inhumane treatment of animals in the giant agribusiness farms for example. Helping to reduce the fur industry (once equally good synthetics came along) for another. But like any group the extremists sometimes get ahold and then they go too far which marginalizes them and greatly reduces their effectiveness in the core of what they do. I love my dogs they love me back--it's a symbiotic relation but some at PETA don't get that...it's true a lot of dogs get abused but there are better ways of handling that then banning pet ownership.

    As to those of you saying "what about people?" Well frankly there are plenty of organizations for that. That's not what PETA is about...otherwise they would have a different name (PETP?). Now you can say people are animals too...but they are using the more limited definition and they have enough to be legitimately concerned about as it is (another reason to stop the overreach).

    Have those at PETA not seen what happens to salmon every year? Its either get mauled by a bear on the way to spawn or get to spawn and die. At least with a fisherman for the most part they are killed relatively quickly. Better than being eaten alive by a bear at least

    It's not about the fish, or the animals, or the children or the environment or the civil liberties, or the race, or the sexual preference or the gender. They just kill their millions under the facade of trying to help instead of lifting a gun or planting an IED to do it.
