Featured Animal Action

There were not many animals in this action thriller, probably because it takes place in the White House. However, the American Humane Association was there for a majority of the animal action..

In the scene where the squirrel climbs up a tree, then hops down onto a bird house and eats, trainers placed a peanut on a mark, showed the squirrel where the peanut was and released him. On action, the squirrel ran out of his cage and hopped down the tree to the birdhouse to eat the peanut.

Due to limited resources, American Humane Association did not monitor any of the dog action.
