    redletterdave writes “PETA believes Nintendo’s iconic plumber Mario takes a ‘pro fur’ stance” because he ‘wears the skin of a raccoon dog to give him special powers’ in the new handheld game released Nov. 13. PETA illustrated its disgust with Nintendo in an online campaign called ‘Mario Kills Tanooki.’ The page includes a side-scrolling Super Mario-style game called ‘Super Tanooki Skin 2D,’ where you play an angry, skinless tanuki that must chase a bloody raccoon-pelt-wearing-Mario across a 16-bit world and try to reclaim its fur.”
