Acclaimed Aussie band target of PETA publicity stunt

The extreme animal rights group, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has taken aim at a popular Australian rock band in its latest cringe-worthy publicity stunt. PETA decided to take offence at the Hunters & Collectors’ band name, writing to the famous group to request it change its name as part of an “animal-friendly namelift”.

The SSAA would like to remind PETA that hunting and gathering is one of Australia’s oldest pastimes, not only for our First Australians, but also for many hunters today who want to source free-range food for the table, among other reasons. We are pleased that the band is not caving to the group’s erratic demands.
