If you were annoyed when you found out that PETA is urging the town of Turkey, TX to change its name to 'Tofurky', then you may not want to read this...

Here's PETA's latest desperate attempt to get attention that may or may not help animals.

PETA has issued a press release announcing their next target is...Super Mario. Yes, the video game character Mario.

In several of the Mario games for the past few decades, Mario has been able to find and wear a suit made out of fur. It's called a tanooki suit...tanukis are Japanese raccoon dogs. The suit usually gives Mario the power to fly.

PETA says, "Tanooki may be just a 'suit' in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it's okay to wear fur."
