Tiger in 'Life of Pi', "Damn near drowned."

CNN's Brooke Baldwin talks to Bob Ferber about Hollywood's "dirty, dark secret" of animal abuse in movie making. Ferber tells Brooke that there is little protection for animals in the industry.

    Wow, animal abuse in Hollywood, what a surprise! NOT! SO where are the actors in these movies when the animals are being mistreated, do the actors also "look the other way"?? No one on the set of any "animals included" movies has ANY knowledge that the animals are not being treated humanely? There are usually dozens of people involved in making any movie, I find it disgusting and shocking that NO ONE notices animal abuse on the set.

    Humane Association is supposed to protect these animals. If they can't do it, get someone better! PETA?

    The tiger that primarily appears in the film is a digital creation by Rhythm & Hues.

    It is surprising to me that the Humane Society was unable to monitor the working conditions for the tiger but I do not support PETA taking over monitoring. Although I do support PETA in some aspects, especially when it comes to the continued production of fur clothing, I do not support a lot of their tactics. Perhaps this bad publicity is the kick in the rear that the humane society needs to do a better job monitoring animal safety on movie sets.
    All that said, accidents do happen and it is not like their are stunt doubles for animals used to create movies. I think what needs to be examined is intent and if there was truly negligence or if this is a case of ignorance.
    Animal safety has come a LONG way since the early days of film when it was very common for western movies to kill live animals as part of the plot of a movie – this is no longer permitted or accepted and all animals being killed are killed via CGI.
