Seriously, PETA?

http://ds.ign.com/articles/121/1212427p1.html

"In a mini-site called Mario Kills Tanooki, PETA is lampooning the plumber for his new Tanooki Tail Power-Suit, claiming it encourages the wearing of fur."

Seriously? First of all, they didn't even get the facts right - the Tanooki Suit is neither new nor called the "Tanooki Tail Power-Suit". Furthermore, the only game where it could be made of real fur is Super Mario Bros. 3 because Mario acquires it by grabbing the suit itself (same goes for what could be skinned frogs and Hammer Bros.), yet they complain about Super Mario 3D Land where he gets it from a Super Leaf.

I'm all for animal rights, but PETA goes too far...
