Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals (a.k.a D.E.H.T.A.) is an organization based primarily in Northrend and is a radical portion of the Cenarion Expedition. The organization was created in direct opposition to master hunter Hemet Nesingwary. They are opposed to what is essentially the decimation of the wildlife caused by Nesingwary and his hunters, and they also give players the chance to battle Hemet's hunters.

If you kill any animal in the Borean Tundra, including hostile ones, you will be given the debuff Animal Blood. The debuff causes D.E.H.T.A. associated NPCs to become hostile and attack you on sight, chasing and screaming insults at you until it wears off. This debuff is easily curable by jumping in a body of water.

Trivia

  • D.E.H.T.A. is a reference to, and possibly a parody of, the real world P.E.T.A. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
  • In WoW, Opus mentions a "G.E.T.A." (presumably Goblins or Gnomes for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and their investigation of the goblin Kibler. The "flavor text" of Empty Worg Pup Cage says in part "Don't worry, it is G.E.T.A. approved."
