‘A Dog’s Purpose’ Innocent of Animal Cruelty

A third party investigation into the animal cruelty that was alleged to have occurred on the set of ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ (2017) has found that all animals in the production were protected by the correct safety measures and no dogs were harmed during the making of the film.

The American Humane Society, the organisation that published the findings, said that an independent animal cruelty expert had concluded that the footage of a dog apparently being forced into churning water was deliberately edited to mislead the public, but admitted that signs of the dog’s stress should have been recognised earlier.

Animal Rights groups had used the footage as evidence as to why they believed film goers should ‘boycott’ the movie, a move that led to the disassembly of the picture’s pre-release promotional tour.

‘A Dog’s Purpose’ entered the box office charts at number 2 last week, and stars Dennis Quaid and Josh Gad.
