If lefties get their way, the disclaimer in movies’ closing credits that “no animals were harmed” during filming will be amended to read “no animals were harmed or frightened”.
Leaked video showing a frightened dog being forced into churning water during filming of A Dog’s Purpose was “misleadingly edited” and the German shepherd was unharmed, says American Humane, the group responsible for overseeing animal safety on the movie set.
A report conducted by a third-party animal-cruelty expert found preventative safety measures were in place to protect the dog, Hercules.
Animal Humane said the outside expert, whose name was withheld because of the public outcry following the video’s release, found it to be a misrepresentation of events.
Not good enough:
Lisa Lange, senior vice president for the animal rights group PETA, called the report’s findings incomplete and said the video still shows “a frightened dog who did not wish to go into the water”.
“The fact that the dog did not get injured or die is not at issue, but questions remain”…
“In the making of a film, no animal should be frightened at all. It is a film.”
PETA might want to take a look at the almost 68,000 frightened cats videos on YouTube, probably most of them posted by cat-loving lefties.
