PETA Gunning For Mafia Wars

PETA Gunning For Mafia Wars

The animal rights group PETA are lodging a protest regarding the presence of dogs in the Facebook based game Mafia Wars. The issue lies int he fact that players can engage in virtual dog fighting activities.

In a letter to the the Mafia Wars developer Mark Pincus PETA said:

“Portraying dogs and other animals as nothing more than living weapons encourages people to abuse animals in real life.

The people who acquire them do so because they have been taught that having one of these dogs is ‘cool’ and ‘tough’, but they have no idea about the care and feelings of the animal they have enslaved,” the organisation said.

Will you please reconsider perpetuating the image of pit bulls and other animals as fighting machines in Mafia Wars and decide against sending a dangerous message that it’s somehow acceptable to force animals to fight, keep them chained, and deny them everything that is natural and important to them?”

The studio behind the game, Zynga, has yet to respond.
