PETA demands action after horses are killed filming HBO drama

Los Angeles – Following the death of two horses during the filming of Dustin Hoffman’s new HBO drama series “Luck”, animal rights group PETA have called for a review of animal safety rules.

The BBC reports that during the filming of the TV series “Luck” two horses were badly injured and had to be put down. The deaths have caused concern on the part of the animal rights organization PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), who state that safety standards were inadequate on the series, and are weak across the industry.

Another horse was killed while filming a later episode.”
