PETA is setting it’s sights on Nintendo and the new Tanooki suit that Mario’s wearing in the new up and coming Super Mario 3D Land. PETA finds that although imagery of Mario wearing a tanooki suit gives the impression that it’s ok to wear an animal’s fur.

Tanukis are real-life raccoon dogs who are beaten and, as PETA’s undercover exposés show, often skinned alive for their fur,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “This winter, everyone can give raccoon dogs and other fabulous animals a 1-UP by keeping our wardrobes fur-free.


Nintendo has responded with the following statement:

Mario often takes the appearance of certain animals and objects in his games. These have included a frog, a penguin, a balloon and even a metallic version of himself. These lighthearted and whimsical transformations give Mario different abilities and make his games fun to play. The different forms that Mario takes make no statement beyond the games themselves.
