PETA Raises Protest Over Nintendo’s Cow Milking Minigame on Nintendo Switch

Posted by at 9:48 am on April 3, 2017

Ingrid Newkirk, the president of the animal rights group PETA, has released an outraged statement deploring Nintendo for taking up the Billings Farm & Museum’s recent challenge to compete against them in the 1-2-Switch video game, which has a cow milking minigame. The new complaint follows the release of a video calling milk the white supremacist drink of choice.

Last month, the Woodstock, Vt.-based educational dairy farm invited the Japanese video game company to learn about milking cows and to do battle against two of its employees to see whether the video game makers or the farmers could milk cows the fastest. Not one to turn down a challenge, Nintendo took them up on the offer.

Feeling left out, PETA issued a letter to cry about the event and expressed its disappointment with Nintendo for having “taken all the cruelty out of milking.” PETA maintains that dairy farming is a heinous practice where “cows are exploited for their milk,” and that it is “NEVER that pleasant for these animals.”

No official statement from Nintendo has been issued.
