PETA Lodges Complaint Against Ark: Survival Evolved

In an unexpected move, PETA today lodged an official complaint against developer, Studio Wildcard and their game, Ark: Survival Evolved. In what some are describing as the first steps to legal action, PETA is insisting that not only does Ark promote violence towards animals, but that the suffering of dinosaurs is unacceptable in any modern society.

For anyone unaware, Ark: Survival Evolved sees players survive in a harsh landscape against hostile humans and creatures, using firearms and improvised weapons to defend themselves. Dinosaurs play a key part in the gameplay.

PETA spokesman, Lardo Bright, was incensed at not only the games violence towards dinosaurs and other creatures, but the total disregard for their welfare.

“It’s unacceptable. Players killing dinosaurs, in their thousands, is absolutely despicable. There’s every chance that if players continue to kill them at their current rate, they’ll be extinct by the end of the month.”

When asked how he and PETA intended to not only stop the sale of the game but the continued access players have to it, Lardo was quick to deliver a raft of proposals.

“We want it shut down. Some of these animals have families – babies of their own. We’ve got to put a stop to it. At the moment, we’ve printed a handful of flyers and held a meeting at Starbucks to go over our plan of attack. We’re gaining momentum: three people have already signed our petition.”

Seemingly one of the main issues PETA has with Ark: Survival Evolved isn’t just the destruction of dinosaurs, but the taming of them. With, in their words, “uncompromising standards on animal welfare”, PETA are trying their best to stop people taming such creatures.

“Listen, we get it. Dinosaurs are cute. But these are living, breathing creatures that need to run free and enjoy their lives. Right now people are stopping them from doing that. Dinosaurs don’t want to be cooped up in someone’s house, staring at four walls all day. They want to get out and socialize with their friends.”

PETA are no stranger to controversy and have for many years nurtured a reputation for conflict.

“We’re not here to cause conflict. We’re here to fight for the rights of all animals, big or small. We’ve all seen the latest Jurassic Park. Look at the stress and suffering they were put through, all for the sake of an amusement park. We can’t let it continue any longer.”

Carrot On A Stick has contacted Studio Wildcard for comment.
