AHA Covers Up Harm in Filming

Animals may have been harmed during the filming of this production 

Animals may have been harmed during the production of the movie, ‘Life of Pi’. The tiger nearly drowned during the filming after being dragged out to sea by a rope and another 27 creatures died during the filming of the ‘Hobbit.’ Shocking truth which is behind the words ‘no animals were harmed’ in these movies.

The American Humane Association (AHA) is in charge of protecting animals during movies which is now being revealed that they are putting more effort into covering up the animal harm than preventing it. 

Some of the biggest-name productions in Hollywood has seen animals die on-set or suffer from near-death experiences but the AHA has stamped their approval.

The tiger from ‘Life of Pi’ named King, the star of the movie, almost drowned during filming. The trainer had to lasso the tiger and pull him to safety. Some more movies that were involved with harming of animals was Pirates of the Caribbean, The Hobbit, and a film from HBO called ‘Luck’.
In the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean film there were dozens of marine animals washing ashore. In the Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey there were 27 animals who died during the filming. Then, there is the HBO’s movie ‘Luck’ which 4 horses died during the movie.
An email obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, AHA monitor Gina Johnson allegedly wrote to a colleague: “I think this goes without saying but DON’T MENTION IT TO ANYONE, ESPECIALLY THE OFFICE! I have downplayed the fuck out of it.”
 
In the movie, of the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, several dozen marine animals which included fish and squid washed ashore, they died after uncontrolled explosions which were set off in the water for special effects, a rep from the AHA which was present at the filming told The Hollywood Reporter.
The AHA declined to comment regarding the allegation.

In the Hobbit there were more than 2 dozen animals who died in the filming including sheep and goats who died of dehydration, exhaustion or drown from the filming. Even though the AHA knew about these animals being harmed, they still gave their certification of ‘No Animals were harmed during this film.’

 During the filming of ‘Failure to Launch’ there was a squirrel that was somehow crushed to death by the film crew. 

There are many films that say that there were no animals harmed of the filming of this movie that is approved by the AHA even though some animals might have been harmed and others who died.

Rare Breed of Killer Whale May Be New Species

A group of killer whales once thought to be a genetic abnormality might be a new species, according to a recent study in the journal, ‘Polar Biology’.

The rarely seen ‘type D’ orca’s, who live in the Southern Ocean, are one of the 4 variates of the killer whale. Researchers recently sequenced their genome using material collected from a museum skeleton from 1955. In 1955 is the when scientists first spotted this type D killer whale, when a pod of them washed ashore on a New Zealand beach.

While typical killer whales, type A,B, and C, have streamlined bodies and large white eye patches, the type D have tiny eye markings and large bulbous heads.

The type D were though to be that these whales were a result of genetic mutations because they were no other known sightings, says Robert Pitman, one of the marine biologist from the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Services, and the co-author of this new study.

"We started seeing photos of this type of animal from various places, all around the Antarctic waters," Pitman said. "The weather is bad down there all the time," he said. "That’s why the whale escaped notice from scientists for so many years."
