American Humane Association Covered Up Movie Animal Abuses

The American Humane Association, most recognized for monitoring animal safety in movies, has been exposed covering up horrible abuses and animal fatalities during filming:

A THR investigation has found that, unbeknownst to the public, these incidents on Hollywood’s most prominent productions are but two of the troubling cases of animal injury and death that directly call into question the 136-year-old Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit’s assertion that “No Animals Were Harmed” on productions it monitors. Alarmingly, it turns out that audiences reassured by the organization's famous disclaimer should not necessarily assume it is true. In fact, the AHA has awarded its "No Animals Were Harmed" credit to films and TV shows on which animals were injured during production. It justifies this on the grounds that the animals weren't intentionally harmed or the incidents occurred while cameras weren't rolling.

Believe what you will about killing animals for food or for survival. But animals should never be harmed for entertainment.

2 I've always wondered about this since I noticed a lame horse in a scene in Maverick. And by lame, I mean the horse wasn't putting any weight on the leg at all. He was running on three legs. Couldn't believe that made the final cut. I guess they were hoping no one would notice since it was a short transition shot. Maybe the horse was fine and just over reacting to some minor bump, but that set me to wondering how good the supervision was.

4 These animal rights groups are nothing more than welfare for lawyers. When you look at them that way, their behavior becomes quite obvious. Please do not feed them.

5 Time to follow Alinsky ourselves. Make the bastards follow their OWN rules. Make them follow anti cruelty laws. Make them follow Obamacare. Expose them to ridicule for not following their own rules. It works, just ask Bush 41, 43, and Nixon.

6 quote from Rusty in no comments thread above.
"So, not only are the PC warriors eager to suppress speech deemed unpopular, they are also too stupid to realize when such "offensive" speech is being used in support of their preferred position."

Since Muslims don't have a habit of deleting comments I can only conclude it must be someone worse in character.

7 " But animals should never be harmed for entertainment."
