    Your sentence should have ended at PETA is silly. They won't get mad about the drugs in the game or other forms of violence, but that in-game animal? Don't touch it.

    I like the addition, not because I'm pro-blowing up animals, but because it's something that happens in real life and adds realism and something different to the game (in the Middle East it's donkeys, but same basic principal). I really hope people being too sensitive doesn't force them to take it out.

    And yes I realize that animals can't defend themselves so someone must do it for them, but I really doubt they care about what people do to them in video games versus what is actually happening to them in real life.

    I worked in the middle east for a few years (on and off). I never saw a donkey get blown up once.

    It happens, though. I'm sure there are more but those were just the front page of Google and not ones involving donkey carts (of which I think there were two different ones).

    It's also probably not the worst things that have been done to weaponize animals.

    I'm concerned that people will mirror this action with the readily available elephant population and publicly available C4.

    they should let us hunt and actually go through the process of skinning and slicing it up and stuff.

    I doubt they'd take away that ability at this point. We may be sick for being into that, but we're hyped for it.

    Not after pumping it they won't. They didn't cave to pressures about whaling in the AC series, I doubt they will cave here.
