Animal rights group PETA has issued a statement condemning “Far Cry 5” for glorifying the popular pastime.
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!
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
Leave the poor grass alone! Yeah, they may become that crazy before it's over.
Ha! 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!
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.
I'm glad most people and politicians don't listen to them anymore.
Yet PETA is okay with all the animals you kill for their fur???
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.
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.
And I condemn PETA for tree rape, you all know those trees they keep "hugging" aren't consenting
Grab them by the tree branch!!!
Grab 'em by the bushy. 🤣
Trees can't even defend themselves. Poor, poor trees
Maybe the trees wanted it...
Their branches said "NO" but their leaves said "YESSS"
C'mon, we all know those trees were just asking for it.
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.
Damn slutty trees.
This even includes young trees... I mean, we're talking about tree paedophilia here.
Get em by the twig!
Sure, you kill thousands of brainwashed people in this game, but let's get morally outraged about the fishing instead...(!)
No one cares about evil people
@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!
Screw PETA. They cause more harm than good; they're too out of control. Years ago they were mad about Tanooki Mario smh.
It's funny how people care for animals more than they do people.
Digital animals you mean
Some people dont deserve to be cared for. I'll give you an example, if there was a house on fire and there was an innocent little puppy inside and Jared Fogle and I could only save one guess what, that puppy is making it out alive.
I do actually prefer dogs to people that I don't know... or don't want to know.
Well they have a point. Fish are literally drowned to death in air and it takes ages. It's like holding a duck under water until it dies instead of shooting it. If fish could scream or bleat like a dying lamb, fishing would be viewed very differently. /S
Maybe they dont know anything about Sega's Seaman. They dont go retro??
Live long and prosper, you have given me a reminder of fond memories from days gone by.
Sounds like fake news to me
I wonder if they got upset when the Road Runner blew up the Coyote while watching the old cartoons..
No, because it was animal on animal violence
98% kill rate PETA
For those that didn't read the article but still want a reason to hate PETA here a a great link from the article. http://www.whypetaeuthanize... so yeah peta just needs to stfu
That’s trashy if it’s true. You have to be skeptical of charities and orgs now which is sad. The real PETA (to me) is the armed militia out there guarding the white rhino lol. I hear nothing but bad things about the organization and asanine stories like these.
Mevermind the fact that you’ll kill 100’s of people during the game. They are complaining about the fishing which is optional.
Peta needs to shut up and go away
Watch out YouTube, PETA is on the loose again.
Where is the logic in this?
I condemn PETA for fishing. Fishing for a purpose in their meaningless existence.
Really PETA? PETA is killing animals and they have the skin on their face to call out a video game? Just shut uo you murdering bastards!
If they have issues with fishing I hate to think what they would make over me taking out a grizzly with dynamite to save a NPC or using a mounted 50 Cal to hunt.
Do those people even know where food comes from ?
They eat organic foods.... Which happen to live, breath and feel, but they do not have a face and can not be justified as being cute and cuddly. P.S. VeggieTales does NOT count...or does it.
And I condemn them for not being able to spell Peter.
So if I mow my lawn cause it too high, is that considered hunting because I am pruning the grass herd?
Is it ok if I fish a fish which hunts other fish? I must save a lot of fish by fishing a fish which is dangerous to other fish.
PETA thinks having pets is immoral. They also have a record of stealing peoples' dogs and euthanizing them. They are extremist, simple-minded morons.
lol slow day at Peta HQ.
Nothing makes me happier than curb stomping a tortoise... in FarCry.
Fishing with a rod and catching the odd tiddler for food or to put back isn't that bad. Maybe go after the Companies destroying the sea bed and coral. Among other wildlife. Farcry is just a game.
PETA is one of the biggest fraud/jokes going. Everything they do is a publicity stunt.
Go and tell the homeless man that I give my catch too so that he doesn’t starve to death that the fish are more important than him. Petty Extreme Tantrum Addicts..........
How dare you killing virtual fishes made of pixels.
THAT'S what they took away from this game? There's a section where you have to shoot a bull in the head whilst he's mating to then cut off his testicles because they taste better when killed mid ejaculation hahaha. Fishing is the least of your problem PETA, oh also IT'S NOT REAL.
PETA aren't just an overzealous animal-rights advocacy group. They are a full-on cult, like the villains in the game they're targeting now. Lots of reading on the subject out there, but I admit it can be difficult to separate information from hysteria on this subject. But it's fairly easy to see the organization for what it is. A charismatic leader (Newkirk) coaxes submissive-personality members into antisocial, extreme, and dangerous behaviors, in the name of some ultimate good.
