No animals were harmed during this blog

I was wondering something this evening. In some movies, toward the end of the credits, there is a notice that “No animals were harmed during the filming of this movie.” With all of the animals used in movies, however, there is bound to be some kind of accident. I mean, a horse might sprain an ankle, a dog might break a leg. Not intentionally, of course, purely by accident.

But if an animal is harmed, what then? Do the credits read: “One animal harmed during the filming of this movie”? Has anyone out there ever seen credits that indicated that animals were, in fact, harmed?

You’ve got to wonder.
