Featured Animal Action

There is a scene where a group of sheep is loaded from a truck into the Bradley. The Bradley is fired upon with the sheep inside. As Colonel Burton suspected, when enemy weapons fire upon the tank, the inhabitants perish from smoke inhalation. For this scene, the truck carrying the sheep was pulled up to the opening of the Bradley and a ramp placed between the two vehicles. The sheep walked from point A to B down the ramp. The production purchased taxidermic sheep for the segment of the scene where the truck is driving away with the dead sheep that had supposedly been inside the Bradley during the test.
