Hollywood hasn't always been very nice to our animal friends. I knew about Ben-Hur. I think the chariot scene is infamous, but some of these others are really disturbing.

Not a movie, but there was an HBO series called Luck about horse racing that got canned because of horse deaths that occurred during filming.

Crap, I can't watch that. I'm sorry but it just hurts.

Can someone just make a list, and I will avoid them?

Some of them are very painful to see, but some of them like Milo & Otis, The Hobbit and Snow Buddies don't actually show anything terribly disturbing by the standards of what you see on the movies. In The Hobbit one, they report that what was dangerous was apparently the environment the animals were housed at off the set where there were a number of accidents. For Snow Buddies, the dogs were apparently ill during filming.

A lot of them were Westerns and some of them were foreign. And there were some that led to changed legislation concerning how animals could be treated on-set. So not all of them were for naught.

I knew about the Sam Peckinpah movies, especially the chickens, and there was a lot of outrage at the time, so there is no need to look back as if it was a different world, it wasn't. I didn't know about the fate of the horse in the Jessie James film, but I often wondered at the time, a high dive is a dangerous item for any untrained animal.
The Walt Disney thing though...

I've known for a long time that the lemming thing was a lie, but I didn't know they actually hurt the lemmings. I thought it was a studio set up when they went over the cliff. That one did surprise me.

Coppola took a lot of heat in the 70's for his use of animals. Particularly The Godfather, Patton and Apocalypse Now.

Yeah, I just click ahead a bit, and saw the groundhogs(?) going over the cliff.
That was enough.

But thank you for the info on the others.

Usually, WatchMojo is pretty interesting, but this one was disturbing. They generally confine themselves to other topics that are a lot easier to handle because you know they don't actually involve anyone getting hurt.

I HATED that scene in Apocalypse now where they cut the buffalo in half. Was totally gruesome. I didn't know that was in the movie when I went to go see it,and once I saw that scene, I knew there was no way they had a 'stand in' or anything else. Ijust turned to my date and said "they really did kill that animal for that scene,that is disgusting that they would do that."
