Hollywood’s leading animal training facility neglected and abused animals, PETA says – Los Angeles Times

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a complaint with federal authorities last month alleging a prominent animal training and handling firm mistreated animals housed in its 5-acre facility.

A complaint filed with the USDA on Dec. 28 accused Birds & Animals Unlimited of violating the federal Animal Welfare Act at its Acton shelter by allowing “animals to suffer without licensed veterinary evaluation or care,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The reported abuse was documented in a PETA “eyewitness investigation” with the help of an employee who worked for Birds & Animals.

The facility has rented out animals for hundreds of productions, including “The Hangover,” “Game of Thrones” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Two additional complaints were filed with the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife earlier this month.
