Palin to PETA: Drop the Snowball or We’ll Sue!

Written by PETA | December 23, 2008

This morning, PETA’s Policy Department received a Scrooge-like phone call from someone purporting to be from Gov. Sarah Palin’s office threatening legal action against us if we don’t play ball—or, actually, stop playing ball. Why are Ms. Palin’s peeps so mad at PETA? Well, if you’ve played our Holiday Snowball Fight game recently, you may know. The game asks players to pick up a virtual snowball and take aim at 2008’s biggest animal foes, from Colonel Sanders to the Trollsen twins to Alaska’s own Sarah Palin. But guess what, Sarah? We’ve checked with our legal team, and they say that it’s “protected parody,” or “fair game”—so the game stays! After all, we’re throwing snowballs, not shoes.

In real life, the moose and other animals Ms. Palin blows to smithereens don’t stand a chance. But, hey, our game is virtual and nonviolent. To be honest, I’m not quite sure why Sarah is so mad about the game anyways. Wielding a gun and decked out in a sexy bikini and pageant ribbon, I’d think she’d be quite proud of how PETA’s portrayed her.

Though this game is just a bit of harmless payback, Palin’s real-life hunting habit is no joke. Palin not only guns down big moose but also supports aerial hunting of wolves—she even proposed putting a bounty of $150 on their heads. Wolves aren’t even overpopulated in Alaska. The sole reason for the bounty would be to boost the numbers of moose and elk so that hunters will have more living targets for their blood sport. Pathetic.




P.S. Governor Palin isn’t the only fantastic figure in the game, so if you haven’t had the chance to play, check it out!

  • Carol says:

    I got really good at the first three games ‘cos I couldn’t wait to get to the Palin payback one! How can such a stupid woman become Governor of Alaska?

  • Victoria says:

    Killing moose and wolves from a plane….the most disgusting despicable person that ever walked the face of the planet!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • clara koblosh says:

    lol that is the best game ever!!!!!!! I really had a lot of fun playing it. People need to have a sense of humor these days sheesh.

  • Patty Bowers says:

    While personally I would like her to vanish off the planet I don’t think it is to PETA’s advantage to have anything virtual or otherwise that involves harming another person even though the snowball is just a game. We are known to have compassion and there are other ways to deal with a woman like her. PEACE is the way. Just exposing her murdering of animals and insensitivity to them in articles photos etc. will be a big enough help. Lets get as many photos of her hunting in as many magazines newsletters etc. as possible because we ARE going to have to deal with her in 2012. Someone needs to be keep track of her every word and deed so that we have the “ammo” or information to expose her for what she is in 2012.

    Wouldn’t this be the kind of idiotic lawsuit the conservatives are always railing against? Oh well as usual it depends on whose ox is being gored.

  • Pam says:

    sara palin is an idiotdoes anyone know where she came from and what education she has??? I have been to Alaska and she is ruining the state. Does the truth hurt sara???

  • Lynne says:

    I think killing ANY living being is wrong. I don’t think it is any worse to kill a human than to kill an animal. A life is a life no matter who it belongs to. An animals life belongs to the animal just the same as our lives belong to us and it is just as valuable to them as ours is to us. No one has any right to take any life away. We are all animals and as animals we are all Gods creatures. Animals can even demonstrate awesome superior ways to humans not the other way round I think Palin proves that!

  • sc says:

    I have always lived close enough to the civilized world that I have not needed to hunt to survive I understand many of Alaska’s citizens depend on hunting for their meals…. so maybe they need to garden more but its her wolf massacre that I have a problem with. If its necessary to control the wolf population so that citizens can eat these creatures should be euthanized painlessly tranquilized and then euthanized. No taking more than one shot no bleeding to death no suffering only peaceful death.

  • Joan Faszczewski says:

    What she is doing in Alaska they should ship her to Afganastian and let Bin Laden yell a one or the other . She says she is pro life but look how many wolves were killed by her and she is wants to endangred more wildlife.

  • Dr. Paul says:

    What’s all the furor about Sarah Palin? Hasn’t anyone figured out that she is a personal professional and political cartoon?

  • jodi says:

    For the gentlemen who did not vote republican due to Palin made mention that one day maybe the animals will have a say. Well they already do through us however we need more voices so the animals have a louder voice. My suggestion is start writing letters and get petitions signed. Unfortunately I’m Canadian and have little ability to effect US change in the US but you can

  • Marg Durrance says:

    Bounty on wolves to promote blood sport tourism for Alaska. Sick!!!

  • Lenny says:

    I don’t see McAllister being rude. PETA brings up him dying. He asks if PETA can name a source. They cannot. Is this made up? I don’t know maybe he doesn’t either. It seems he is asking for proof and PETA want him to believe them without any. PETA has no credibility anymore because they cater to the radicals.

  • LouPeb says:

    Hooray for PETA!!! I am so glad they made this game. I don’t understand how anyone could support that woman. As they say Hunters are cowardly scum!

  • indycar01 says:

  • K says:

    OMG! One of the best online games ever! I like the picture of the reindeers hoof in Palins face at the end. AWESOME!

  • Paws says:

    If only they snowballs were real….Or even better if Peta had a vodoo doll of every evil person on this planet they would definatly learn! Meanwhile I’m in the mood for some punching….a certain someone.

  • D. says:

    I just have to say I’m glad this was found legal for being a “parady” and one thing that disgusts me more than anything else in the world is things like arial hunting or hunters who do so from their vehicle. Personally I grew up where hunting was common but you didn’t do it for sport you did it for the food but when you start killing for sport of fun thats FING DISGUSTING… I think anyone that kills form a vehicle or helicopter should be shot themselves… Well thats my two cents…

  • Alex Arià says:

    Very nice guys! Is there a way we can make Sarah Palin know what we think about her nasty hunting habit?

  • Rondi Spurling says:

    Sarah Palin is a disgusting woman. I am so glad that PETA and others are calling her out on her bullshit. Not only does she have no respect for life she has no respect for women. She will put us back 100 years! Go PETA!!

  • machelle says:
