Featured Animal Action

In one scene a deer is seen being hit by Samantha's car. After waking up from the crash, Samantha sees the dear still alive lying in the snow. She approaches the animal and puts him out of his misery by breaking its neck. For this scene an animatronic dear was used. Other animal action consist of a mother goat and her babies seen at the end of the film. The mother goat was tethered to a stake and the babies naturally stayed close by. Wranglers were placed strategically around the goats to retrieve any that might stray. American Humane was notified about the goat action and was present on the set. However, our office was not notified about the other animal action.
