signed. I thought that someone from the Humane Society was supposed to be on site during filming with animals to ensure that none are hurt. What happened to them? (the people not the animals)

I hope this will stop lots from seeing this movie, there's no excuse for this. The same should be done to the ones who treated these animals so awful.

What a heartbreaking story. Money hungry movie makers should not be allowed to use live animals.
It should be made illegal.

signed. Animals are never suppose to be hurt in film making, this is horrific, no one should support this movie or go to see it, stand up for the abused animals people. The people that abused these animals should be punished severely, an eye for an eye. They should ban the use of animals in movies.

Googling "hobbit animal deaths filming", there's another side to the story. (Who to believe!) The other side states that these claims are from disgruntled animal wranglers who were dismissed from the film with cause and who now want to damage the film. There were some animal deaths. It's claimed that some were from natural causes... But, again, who to believe! Without having actually been there, how can we know for sure. Still it dampens my former enthusiasm about seeing The Hobbit just in case those animals suffered. Wish I knew the truth.
