Disturbing Video From "A Dog’s Purpose" Emerges

The makers of the upcoming movie “A Dog’s Purpose” are facing a backlash after TMZ posted a video Wednesday that appears to show one of the movie’s canine actors performing under duress. In the disturbing video, a trainer looks to be forcing a terrified German Shepherd into a pool of rushing water for a scene. The video then appears to show the same dog sinking as one crew member yells “Cut it!” and others rush to help the dog. PETA called for a boycott of the movie, which opens on Jan. 27. Movie sets with animal actors are monitored by safety representatives from the American Humane Association. The AHA said in a statement it was “disturbed and concerned” by the footage, and that the rep has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate. — Read it at USA Today
