New York -- Wearing horse masks and holding signs that read, "R.I.P.: Horses, Goats,
Chickens" and "Boycott The Hobbit: Unexpected Cruelty,"
PETA members will converge outside the Ziegfeld Theatre at the Thursday
premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to protest the
admitted deaths of numerous animals, including three horses, during production. The PETA members will
encourage people to contact director Sir Peter Jackson's production company and
speak out against the fatal—and preventable—neglect of what sources have
reported to be 27 animals, including horses, chickens, goats, and sheep.
When: Thursday, December 6, 6 p.m.
Where: Outside Ziegfeld Theatre, 141 W. 54th St. (between Sixth and Seventh avenues), New York
"There is no 'back again'
for the animals who suffered and died during The Hobbit's
production," says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "PETA is
encouraging moviegoers to let Jackson know that using live animals—and letting
them die—is unacceptable in our age of breathtaking special effects."
