We all know that showbiz is a tough place for any actor, but it’s an even tougher one for animals. PETA recently released whistleblower reports stating that as many as 27 animals died during production of The Hobbit. :( This forced director Peter Jackson, his fellow producers, and production giants Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema to issue statements about the alleged abuse. But instead of coming clean and promising to improve the way that they treat animals on and off the set—or better yet, not using animals in movies at all—they chose to avoid some of the allegations and deny others.
They might just be a little slow in grasping how serious these accusations are. To help them see the light, we came up with an infographic explaining the alleged abuse that animals endured while being used for The Hobbit. Check it out!
Spread the word about this tragedy to your friends and take action to prevent cruelty to animals in movies by posting our infographic on Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter! And don’t forget that YOU can speak up by sending a message to filmmakers letting them know that hurting and killing animals for any movie is wrong.
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
