The Zerg are an alien race hellbent on destroying all human life in the universe. All they know is hate and hunger and they must be terminated... right?
The Escapist reports that PETA thinks otherwise. At the official launch of Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm PETA will be attending. Attending with a mission. To get us to realize that the hated Zerg have feelings and aspirations like anything else and should be treated with respect, kindness and understanding.
Everyone do the right thing and stop making purses and shawls out of Zerg carapace and tusks.
PETA has promised to burrow under the ground and pop up in the house of anyone who continues to mistreat the Zerg, once inside the house they will quickly infect any low level troops with a mind control virus and spray deadly acid on any who oppose them. While these are traditional PETA methods, PETA has promised to become more creative with their protest over the course of time.

PETA makes the argument that if we do come into contact with any species outside of our planet that we should make the effort communicate with and understand them, and not just immediately send the troops in, as the prospects for peace with the latter way of doing things are quite grim. The statement from PETA also likened the Zerglings to creepy animals we have here on earth, saying "while Zerglings are not real, there are many equally 'strange' and exotic animals we share this planet with who deserve our empathy. Just because crocodiles and snakes look alien to us, that doesn't make it OK to skin them alive for a handbag, shoes, or a belt".
Just wait till this guy gets his Zerg carapace upgrade.
Should we treat Zerg with respect? Let us know in the comments below!
