How true is the disclaimer: “No animals were harmed in the making of this film"?
According to a press conference and letter released by PETA last week, a number of recent films may have placed animals in potentially dangerous situations, despite the role of the American Humane Association (Aha) to monitor animals on set.
Last Thursday, PETA held a news conference with former "The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker and "The Simpsons" co-creator Sam Simon, calling on the Aha to investigate over a dozen claims suggesting animal injuries occurred during recent productions due to a failure in Aha oversight. The Aha has responded denying PETA's claims.
The American Humane Association uses a set of guidelines, on-set monitoring and ratings to protect animal actors, and according to the organization, their Film & TV unit is the "only animal welfare organization with oversight sanctioned by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG)."
