Less than a month before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" hits theaters across the U.S., the production team of the highly-anticipated adventure movie got slapped by controversy surrounding the deaths of 27 animals during the shooting of the film in New Zealand. A group of wranglers in the country claimed that the producers were responsible for the deaths of those animals due to the condition of the set, which was said to be filled with bluffs, sinkholes and other "death traps."

Quickly reacting to the allegation, the producers issued a statement on Monday, November 19, insisting that they were not to blame for what happened to the animals. "The producers completely reject the accusation that 27 animals die due to mistreatment during the making of the films," the filmmakers stated. "Extraordinary measures were taken to make sure that animals were not used during action sequences or any other sequence that might create undue stress for the animals involved."
