the rightwinger/govt-agit-prop-mouthpiece david farrar must be angling for a ticket to the hobbit premiere..
..or be saying thank you for an already received ticket..?
..or is just generally kissing jackson arse..?
..what else to explain the whopping lies he has told/spun in defence of the detailed allegations over animal treatment laid at jackson..about all those dead animals on the hobbit production..?
..the piece i link you to is farrar spinning so much for peter jackson..he must be dizzy..
..he calls peta ‘liars’..
..and then dosen’t mention the actual number of untoward animal deaths.
..farrar says it was ‘a couple of horses’..so..?
..whereas at least 23 animal deaths are suss..
..and this is the actual conditions on that farm..(as reported in the independant..and linked to here @ whoar earlier today..)
“..Two horses died after breaking their necks on the set after they were run off embankments – while another was left for over three hours with its legs tied together.
Goats and sheep died from worm infestations – and falling into sinkholes – while unprotected chickens were killed by dogs…”
farrar then produces a swathe of evidence /rebuttals from jackson et al..’proving no animals were hurt on set..so what about this..?..
“..A black and white horse named Shanghai was hobbled (his legs were tied together so that he could not move) on set during a location shoot and left lying on the ground for more than three hours reportedly because he was too active for his rider to handle. The rope burns on all of Shanghai’s legs that resulted from the hobbling were covered up with makeup and fake feathers (long hair on the legs of some horses) for filming. Hobbling is a violation of American Humane Association’s (AHA) guidelines and an inappropriate way to deal with an energetic horse…”
and the general summary of the farm the animals were housed on is as follows..:
“..No animals were harmed while the cameras were actually rolling. with their welfare overseen on set by the American Humane Association –
– but the farm they were kept included sinkholes – broken fences – and bluffs where the animals were injured..”
farrar also dismissed the allegations as coming from a disgruntled/fired employee..so..?
..whereas multiple wranglers (three) came forward to lay detailed accounts of their allegations..
..so..farrar gets yet another whopper-award…
(and don’t believe me..i have linked you to his exercise in spin/obfuscation..
..and i guess he would label this pile of shite as anti-‘fomenting’..eh..?..)
(ed:..and my invite to the hobbit-premiere has not yet arrived..eh..?..)
