PETA demands Aussie band change their name
The Australian head of campaigns for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has written to the members of the 1980s rock group urging them to consider the name change to “discourage people from hunting animals”.
PETA gave away the game, indicating the group was really after a cheap publicity stunt than a serious request by suggesting “Hunters & Collectors of Antiques” and “Hunters & Collectors of Beer Cans” as possible replacements.
Ms Fruno suggested by agreeing to change the name of the band, the members would “help raise awareness of the cruelty inherent in hunting waterbirds and give ducks a fighting chance”.
