Not entirely fair X2

Not entirely fair X2 [In reply to] Can't Post

The article linked to is from November 20th and is based on a story appearing on Radar.com on Novemeber 19th. Some animals hired for the production died. According to the AHA it would like its jurisdiction expanded to include animal actor housing and treatment while not on set. This position was only made public at this time because the AHA representative at Wellington was called negligent (I'm paraphrasing) by PETA sometime prior to November 19th.

Also, regarding your comment on Kelly's piece: Kelly's opinion piece came some days after Jackson himself brought the issue back to the spot-light in the 'Telegraph' article, and a couple days after PM Key's comments on Hobbit premiere day.

I know no one really wants to talk about this stuff right now, but we should at least try to keep things straight, if only for the sake of posterity.
