Featured Animal Action

A cat walks through a backyard as a woman watches. A trainer placed a lightweight monofilament line on the cat's leg and held the line while standing out of camera range. The cat was then put on its mark, and another trainer standing across the yard called to the cat and rewarded it with tuna. The grounds were checked for safety ahead of time. Although this scene did not appear in the theatrical release, it may appear on the DVD.

The production provided documentation that the deer head mounted on the wall in the cabin was a prop.
