NEW YORK CITY - The people at PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, are not shy when it comes to stating what is on their mind as CNN's Wolf Blitzer has found out.
Blitzer revealed that he received an email from Mimosa Ledbetter, executive director with PETA stating that PETA would appreciate it if he would kindly drop his first name and change it to something else.
Ms. Ledbetter suggested that he could change it to Wally, Willie, or even Woody.
The PETA official explained that they feel that by a man in the public eye having the first name of an animal it would tend to cause the hunting element of society to think about going out and hunting down a wolf.
They explained that Alaskan native and failed 2008 GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah "Moose Breath" Palin recently expressed the fact that when she sees Wolf Blitzer on television it makes her want to go up in a state-owned helicopter and shoot a wolf.
SIDENOTE: Wolf Blitzer has not responded to PETA's request. An assistant said that he was out duck hunting.
