Peter Jackson and the producers of The Hobbit have released a statement denying allegations that up to 27 animals died due to poor conditions at the farm where they lived during filming of the highly-anticipated movie, Zap2it reports.
"The producers completely reject the accusations that 27 animals died due to mistreatment during the making of the films," reads the statement. "Extraordinary measures were taken to make sure that animals were not used during action sequences or any other sequence that might create undue stress for the animals involved."
