The American Humane Association will hold a hearing Wednesday at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to discuss issues surrounding the monitoring of animal action on film and television sets. The AHA’s “No Animals Were Harmed” program was created in 1940 to ensure the protection of animal performers in filmed entertainment, although high profile incidents of animal neglect and death continue to make headlines. Most recently the biggest scandal occurred with HBO’s Luck, which shut down after three horses died on set. WB’s The Hobbit was also plagued by animal cruelty allegations, but other incidents have occurred in film, television and commercial production. The New York Times wrote about showbiz and animals today.
