You ever wonder where Mario gets those cute little Tanuki suits he wears to make him fly? From Tanukis, obviously, which are real actual animals, also called Raccoon Dogs. And PETA is (understandably) pissed that he’s still wearing Tanuki fur in the new “Super Mario 3D Land.” So pissed that they made a fun little Flash game about it. Which is apparently what you do to vent your frustrations when you’re mad at an imaginary video game character.
You really don’t want to know. Knock off Uggs are made with the pelts of Chinese raccoon dogs rather than than the sheep skin found in authentic Uggs. In order to pass the savings for these counterfeits on to the customer, the raccoon dogs are tortured and murdered in a mind-blowingly horrific fashion. WARNING: Graphic.
