Students protest grotesque dog killing in Call of Duty

Students from the Academy of Notre Dame have begun protesting the violence against dogs seen in the massively popular Call of Duty: World at War.

"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," said 19-year-old Breanna Lucci, president of the school's Animal Rights Club.

Lucci recently began a petition against this computerized animal murder, which has garnered over 100 signatures from her classmates.

"My little 12-pound Pomeranian, Winnie the Pooh, is sitting next to [my brother, who is playing Call of Duty: World at War], and I'm thinking, 'This looks horrible!' My brother is a sweetheart. He won't be killing dogs after playing. But some people might."

Following that logic, if an animal trained to kill is jumping at your throat while you're holding a gun, you shouldn't defend yourself. Also, note how Lucci doesn't seem to have an issue with shooting the other humans in the game. It makes you wonder where some people's priorities are.
