One that I can think of is 'Milo and Otis' which allegedly killed 20+ kittens and injured many other animals during filming.
Neoooooo!!!

I bet Everytime they had a cat on set near Milo, Otis flipped it and was all the jealous lover and killed them ~0~*

Also... I doubt they payed any money for the wolf meat... I bet the hunting groups payed them to portray Wolves in a way which justifies their actions in real life, with Wolf's meat.
*sigh*. The russian, lower class trappers arn't going to say 'hey man i'll do it free, I wanna hunt wolves and keep it legal'.

Also, the majority of trappers are probably lower class, they have no other source of income.

Why bother trapping, why don't they cage some, make them have puppies, then hit the puppies over the head when born and sell them as childrens teddies?

Then when the wolf pair becomes too sad to bred, just kill them and sell them to some movie buffs?


I mean essential it is the same thing, if not worse as these pups have grown up in the real context and within the wild, they have learnt lessons from parents... and they have been capable of their skills to survive, then someone does something their parents cannot teach to them as they probably suffered the same if not a less agonising fate. Being shot... or "ehs jus trappin em man".. "who cares about havin ya leg half severed waiting for a nightmare to come and snap Ya Neck" .. "wolves are shit, russian pov stupid bastards are just struglin mannnn.. feel the pity for idiocy..  dont let tha wolf rats charm yuh"

There are two main reasons we want everyone to boycott this movie. First, it is an anti-wolf propaganda film disguised as entertainment. The computer generated wolves in no way, shape, or form act as they are represented in this movie. Real ...wolves do NOT weigh 250 pounds, real wolves do NOT hunt humans, real wolves do NOT seek revenge, real wolves do NOT shred their kills to bits for visual effect as shown in the movie, real wolves do NOT den in winter, real wolves do NOT drag the carcasses of their kills to dens and leave bones scattered everywhere (they stuff themselves at the kill site and carry the meat in their stomachs and regurgitate it for the pups), and on and on and on. It just pisses me off that wolves keep having to endure "the big bad wolf" status when they are the most people tolerant large predator out there. Looking at animal related death statistics, you are 2 1/2 times more likely to be killed by an elephant in the US than a wolf, and that is only because pet wolves have killed people. There has only been one death attributed to wild wolves since 1888. That is one death in 124 years, not the savage human hunting vengeful slaughtering monsters that this film would lead you to believe. Wolves have struggled to regain a foothold from nearly being hunted to extinction only to have their numbers decimated due to an unconscionable rider to the must pass budget amendment in 2010. And now this piece of crap movie comes out (which is entirely fictional and is entirely groundless in its plot) comes along to make the ignorant irrationally fearful of wolves in order to convince them think it is a good idea to hunt down all the wild wolves because they will think what the computer generated wolves in this garbage film do is an accurate depiction of how real wolves act toward humans, which is completely ludicrous. Second, multiple sources, including the actors themselves, have stated that the films director, Joe Carnahan, ordered 4 dead wolves, 2 of which were EATEN BY THE CAST AND CREW, and the other two were used as PROPS. Representatives of the film will neither confirm or deny that the wild wolves shown at the start of this film were the 4 killed, including at least one of which were shot on film and made it into the movie, and that the wolf's head thrown into a field in one scene was an actual wolf's head and not a prop. I am still awaiting responses from inquiries about these allegations, but if true, your purchase of a ticket to see this movie is a vote in favor of animal abuse for the sake of entertainment.

PLEASE BOYCOTT THIS MOVIE AND LIKE AND SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

ffs get over it. It is a film. also, its not like they were a bunch of human loving happy wolves. They were trying to kill them, so instead the humans killed them (well, they didn;t. IT IS A MOVIE) to save themselves. Jesus christ people.
duh!  They ATE WOLF on set!  

Also, even tho it is a film, it does influence uninformed peeps.  Wolf behavior was portrayed incorrectly & could influence people to fear & hate wolves.  Therefore, endangering them!

It is more about context than superlative substance

If out in the wild, living with wolves or starving

Eating animals wouldn't be the same thing, even if a dead wolf

Thinking of that plane crash where the survives lived unlike cannibals  


'None of this had to happen
Just as noone has to pay for it'
Which has a great difference within ambiguities' choices if I leave the context out

Just go to 4mins onward...

and maybe 24:00 minutes into this feature length:

If you want to see a hunter find his mind.

____________________________________________________


Your protest culture is sickly perverted
(resting upon absolute superlatives)

The ability of open discourse to be relatively subversive
of fundamentally exploitative (of vulnerability) institutions
is aided more by main stream threats of boycott
which brings to light that emotive instinct overcomes in-bred fear

It would be foolish to picket cinemas and create a segregative difference
between those who wander the oblivion drawn by any feeling or fright
and those who are wary and again aware of the projectionist cast on light


I think this is the best way of going about it
As opposed to going just to be appalled by the depiction
Be more appalled by its' reality

Or you'l never buy another fiction as if novelty

It is sad that the themes cross over into another rare case like distraction
Like we are constructing viruses of ideology for a species cage to realize

Think a wolf in the wild, think of the subscriptions in a plot

What are these to the wilderness but an insolvent leech
a life form that can only live in another life form that feeds the thought
An idea that can only be quelled by absence of the subject

the prey mind encroaches upon the den of its' fear
and the feared becomes prey if not keeping "its" (owned) distance
whilst which diminishes with each regression

Put two territorial animals together
and look at what happens

Put two territorial species together
and sensibilities give way
while the unwritten constitution vanishes each moment
And trees are fallen to bring it to life

Is the forest lost in the battle
so that we may see out at each night
can't purity remain, to ever let be  

Are the words lost in the prattle
with each howl gracing us —hollowed
was it not what let US see through the night

Will the wolves still sing out when knowing
they are the last of the Kind
will the leaves fall heavily in an air empty of such breath

Just to hear a sound unlike dreams combustive
progression of a future demise most idle by stalling
Each petal fallen, every page clasped; unjust another clause

Grasped by the paws

Wow, yeah. Not going to see this, even though it didn't look too good anyway.

In today's society it is not neccessary to kill an animal for a "realistic" scene. Nor is it neccessary to encourage others to do the job for you so that you have a loop hole way of saying you didn't technically "kill" the animal. These animal's deaths were certainly not neccessary, therefore this kind of behaviour shouldn't be supported. If "one offs" like this are supported then you are going to receive alot more "one offs" until it becomes the norm.
I won't be purchasing nor viewing this film.
