HorseIt's rare that an animal dies during filming of a movie (we always see the "no animals were harmed in the production of this film" line in the credits at the end of movies), but now two horses have died during filming of the remake of My Friend Flicka. It's not clear on exactly how the horses died (some reports say they tripped on a rope, some say they fell during galloping with other horses), but it's pretty disturbing either way. Some animal rights groups have accused the American Humane Association of doing a poor job of watching what happened on the set, while the head of the AHA says that all precautions were made to keep the animals safe.
