Druids for the Ethical and Humane Treatment of Animals (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 Ability seal [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.

During the third invasion of the Burning Legion, D.E.H.T.A. came to Highmountain to oppose the Pinerock Hunters that threatened the wildlife in the area.[1]

  • Quests associated with D.E.H.T.A. give reputation with the Cenarion Expedition.
  • D.E.H.T.A. is a parody of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
  • "D.E.H.T.A." is an anagram for "DEATH."
  • In the Burning Steppes, 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 Inv box petcarrier 01 [Empty Worg Pup Cage] says in part "Don't worry, it is G.E.T.A. approved."
  • The subversive class from the Warcraft RPG sourcebook Dark Factions is thematically similar to D.E.H.T.A.
