In what has to be a first in MMO gaming, the animal rights group PETA is planning a full scale protest in Northrend on the Whisperwind server. Apparently appalled by the killing of baby seals in Howling Fjord, this weekend a rally is planned to...we're not really sure. Not being a PvP server there really isn't much you can do to seal killers short of jumping around in their face and calling them names. With such publicity and the knack online gamers have for starting trouble, we're not sure PETA knows quite what they are in for. We are sure to see some bannings.
The fight against the Canadian seal slaughter has gone digital!
That's right, gamers, get ready: This Saturday, World of Warcraft (WoW) players will have the opportunity to combat a team of four Horde seal killers. We need your help to stop them from bashing in the heads of any more seals!
Thrall refused to ban the slaughter of seals, despite multiple requests from the Alliance to do so, because Orgrimmar stands to make a large profit from the fur.
Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter. Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King.
This is not a late April Fool's joke so for more info, check out the blog here.
