Who cares about PETA. Go eat some grass and leave the rest of us alone.

LOL! Too stupid to even give this a serious reply.

The only thing I will say is that PETA pulled this stunt with Assassin's Creed IV when they complained about whale hunting. They do it because they know the gaming press will give them publicity - so let's not!

UnHoly_One178d ago

Yes, they used to be a group that actually did good things.

Now they are just a bunch of nutcases that will do anything for some free publicity.

PETA is a joke. I'm all for animal rights and habitat preservation but this is the kind of BS that just shows them to be petty and out of touch with reality.

They have a problem with fishing in FC5, perhaps we shouldn't tell them what was done to a lot of endangered species in FC3 and 4 lol

Bobafret178d ago

Leave the poor grass alone! Yeah, they may become that crazy before it's over.

Kavorklestein178d ago (Edited 178d ago )

Remember, that grass also has a preferred pronoun now too... they want to be called "theygreen" or "greenself"
And if you refuse to address the grass as such, you are Trans-foliageic, and thus, need Rich and corrupt democrats to push an agenda as if it even matters in the slightest to
non-grass-based beings.

Soon that grass will also be able to sue your dog for pooping on the grass. It's now considered a hate crime.

And Grass lives matter will make sure crab grass gets the same treatment as Bluegrass. Lemon grass is still pretty chill tho.

Their quote:
"Fishing means luring fish into a trap, exposing them to fear and shortness of breath for minutes to hours, as well as to an agonizing death struggle before being killed or often cut alive."

The real truth:
"Peta means luring in an audience, exposing them to bulls*** & shortness of patience for minutes to hours, as well as to an explosive death struggle of words before accomplishing absolutely nothing or getting themselves kicked in the nuts or whatever they have."

Actually that is a fair description of fishing. I'm fine with that PETA... NEXT!

Null1980178d ago (Edited 178d ago )

I haven't fished in a long while, but we either released or kept the ones for eating live, swimming in the bass boat's tank. Cleaned at dock. The fresher, the better yea?

Okay, I'm all for humane treatment of animals, treating live animals with care & the best possible methods of food processing.

What I'm not okay with is the guerilla war-like loudmouths telling us what we can & cannot eat (within reason), what we can use, etc. Don't like meat? Go eat a tree bark burrito. Don't like the zoos who actually do conservation education and depopulation efforts? Just stay in your hippie commune & frolick in the daisies.

Yet Peta has no problem with me killing every living creature I see with my sniper rifle? And let's me honest I'd shoot the fish too if I could.

Testfire178d ago

I'm glad most people and politicians don't listen to them anymore.

TheCommentator178d ago

Yet PETA is okay with all the animals you kill for their fur???

DarXyde178d ago

They have to say SOMETHING to remain "relevant", I suppose.

I don't know how they manage to show themselves after it was made obvious that they take the lives they claim to care about.

TheSaint177d ago

I literally set fire to a dog and watched it run around setting fire to other animals.

But fishing? RAGE!

Pathetic, it's not even real.

yellowgerbil179d ago

And I condemn PETA for tree rape, you all know those trees they keep "hugging" aren't consenting

Kratos_Kart2007178d ago

Grab them by the tree branch!!!

NecrumOddBoy178d ago (Edited 178d ago )

Grab 'em by the bushy. 🤣

Relientk77178d ago

Trees can't even defend themselves. Poor, poor trees

Sunny_D178d ago

Maybe the trees wanted it...

Chuuzuu178d ago

Their branches said "NO" but their leaves said "YESSS"

johndoe11211178d ago

C'mon, we all know those trees were just asking for it.

Mr Marvel178d ago

Maybe they can't defend themselves, but they could just "leave". ;)

I blame the trees. They should not be dressing in such revealing clothes. It's the trees fault.

Mr Marvel178d ago

This even includes young trees... I mean, we're talking about tree paedophilia here.

Sure, you kill thousands of brainwashed people in this game, but let's get morally outraged about the fishing instead...(!)

InTheZoneAC178d ago

No one cares about evil people

Diffraction_Fos178d ago (Edited 178d ago )

@InTheZoneAC - Yeah. Human lives mean nothing. Kill however as may as you want. But if you so much as look at a fish wrong, you're satan. Next week, rally all the gullible school kids to protest about guns. Yay!

EdwardNigma561178d ago

Screw PETA. They cause more harm than good; they're too out of control. Years ago they were mad about Tanooki Mario smh.
