Peta HBO Luck

Peta HBO Luck, Animal rights group PETA has protested after two horses were put down during filming for HBO drama Luck. The series, which stars Dustin Hoffman, explores the lives of several characters caught up in the world of horse racing.

The official website for the American Human Association confirmed that two of the animals were put down after becoming injured – one during the filming of the pilot and one during the filming of the seventh episode.

“The two racehorses stumbled and fell during short racing sequences,” the AHA explained in a statement. “The horses were checked immediately afterwards by the on-site veterinarians and in each case a severe fracture deemed the condition inoperable. The decision was that the most humane course of action was euthanasia.

“American Humane Association is deeply saddened by the deaths of these two wonderful animals. Because of these accidents, the two episodes in question do not carry the full certification, ‘No Animals Were Harmed’®.”

However, in a post on its own website, PETA criticized the deaths, insisting that it had “repeatedly reached out” to series creator David Milch and the show’s production team, only to be “rebuffed”.
