PETA criticises whaling in Assassin’s Creed 4
Whaling also explained by PETA.
Assassin’s Creed 4 features a whaling side mission where you can harpoon whales and get benefits of that. PETA however will have none of it and have condemned this by releasing a statement to Venturebeat.
They’ve described the whaling process in detail and it kind of makes you feel bad for the whales.
Whaling—that is, shooting whales with harpoons and leaving them to struggle for an hour or more before they die or are hacked apart while they are still alive—may seem like something out of the history books, but this bloody industry still goes on today in the face of international condemnation, and it’s disgraceful for any game to glorify it.
“PETA encourages video game companies to create games that celebrate animals—not games that promote hurting and killing them.”
They have been vocal about a few videogames and even went after Mario once for wearing the Tanooki fur.
