  1. Hollywood Accused of Animal Cruelty in Major Films

    According to a recent report, during the production of Life of Pi, the lead tiger nearly drowned in a water tank. What’s more, dozens of dead fish and squid reportedly washed up dead on shore for days during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean, and 27 animals may have died during the making of The Hobbit.  Yet all these movies earned their “no animals were harmed” credit by the American Humane Association. We wonder how. A court hearing scheduled for March 2014 will investigate.
