HOBBIT Animal actors die from neglect.
The American Humane Association, which is overseeing animal welfare on the films, says no animals were harmed during the actual filming. But it also says the wranglers' complaints highlight shortcomings in its oversight system, which monitors film sets but not the facilities where the animals are housed and trained.
The animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it's planning protests at the premieres in New Zealand, the US and the UK.

Re: HOBBIT Animal actors die from neglect.
A spokesman for director Peter Jackson has confirmed an unspecified number of deaths related to conditions on a Wellington farm. Horses, goats and sheep were among the casualties, he told the AP. He said that when production supervisors learned of the conditions they quickly moved to fix them.

Still, the animal-rights group PETA said that as a result of the news it will protest several premieres of the film, produced by New Line and released by Warner Bros. around the world

It sounds like the wranglers were trying but no one listened to them. They will loose money on this film now for sure.

Peter Jackson denies it.

In a joint statement with the other producers on the fantasy films, Jackson said that great pains and hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent to provide good care for the animals on the picture. He said allegations that animals were mistreated off the set were only now being brought to the producers' attention.

I read that today. Awful. They did admit to a couple of the animals that died unnecessarily, which I was surprised. But we know it was more. Really sad.
