Important to note:
This film has been the center of controversy since its release, due to many allegations of animal abuse and cruelty during production. This included allegations that a number of kittens had been killed during filming due to dangerous filming conditions. Due to the film not being supervised by any animal advocacy groups during production, these reports cannot be confirmed. However, many have noted that the extreme and often dangerous conditions the animals were placed in (including footage of a cat falling off of a cliff) were likely due to the filmmakers intentionally putting the animals into these situations.
From an Amazon review.
5.0 out of 5 starsI love this movie!
But I mean come on, animals were hurt and probably slain by bears during the making of this film. Also dropped off cliffs. It’s still a great movie though! And if you consider how this whole movie is a life lesson of sorts, the animal cruelty going on during the making of it teaches another lesson in and of itself: that you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet! I mean come on, lots of human beings are hurled to their deaths everyday in the name of dumber crap than a movie. Its a violent effin world! The animals died for a good cause though. What a great movie…
