Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, movies )

It is often displayed at the end of movies and television shows that feature animals -- that succinct but prominent disclaimer notifying the viewing audience that no animals were harmed during production.

I didn't want to read further. Don't animals have trainers looking out for their best interests? Or am I being ridiculous?

Even as a kid--of 10-12--I was so afraid of 'what if it's not true?' The only animal star that I knew of who wasn't hurt during the making of a film was Benji. Benji's 'dad' directed Benji's every move, as the camera crew followed him up rocky slopes and back down. During breaks Benji was treated like a king. He followed his dad--can't think of his name--like a shadow. When they were done for the day Benji would jump into his dad's arms and with his driver, they would go home. His dad was disabled. Other than Benji's dad, I totally agree with the above statements....thnx Cher.
