Nintendo's game for Wii and DS, Cooking Mama, has been targeted by animal rights group PETA in its latest campaign against animal cruelty.

The group have produced its own version of the game, Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals, in which you play the main character preparing a turkey for cooking by plucking the feathers, taking out the giblets and cutting off the head.

At the completion of each rather bloody stage, you also get a turkey cruelty fact from the PETA archives.

"Why is PETA picking on poor Mama?" the company explained in a statement. "Because the games are so heavy on dishes made from dead animals that the only things missing are the blood and the slaughterhouse. So in the name of accuracy and honesty, PETA decided to introduce a little of both.

"We wish that all cooking games would allow people to prepare more vegetarian dishes instead of just slicing up animal flesh over and over—so on our site we encourage players to contact Majesco to ask for an all vegetarian-recipe Cooking Mama game."

Another PETA campaign recently managed to get Sega to pull an advert for Samba de Amigo which featured a monkey "actor".
