Animal Rights Club Attacks Call of Duty: World at War

March 21, 2009 Written by Draisey

Anyone who has had the pleasure of playing Call of Duty: World at War has at least some familiarity with the attack dogs featured in the game, as well as the ability to save their own hides by shooting down these canine foes.

But a group of students at the Academy of Notre Dame in Massachusetts are particularly upset about the ability to shoot dogs in CoD:WaW. And they’ve taken their anger directly to Activision Blizzard, the publisher of this best-selling FPS franchise. Breanna Lucci, who serves as president of the Animal Rights Club at the Academy of Notre Dame in Tyngsboro, said:

“Killing dogs as a form of entertainment … over and over again. That’s one of the objects of the game. Parents need to know what they are buying their kids. Killing animals should not be a form of entertainment… 

My little 12-pound Pomeranian, Winnie the Pooh, is sitting next to [my brother, who is playing CoD:WaW], and I’m thinking, ‘This looks horrible!’ My brother is a sweetheart. He won’t be killing dogs after playing. But some people might.”

Wait until they find out you can also kill people in the game.
