Oddly enough, these guys never seem to get around to submitting their films for approval.

FTA: "If an animal is injured or killed while AHA guidelines were being followed, the production can still get the certification and use the disclaimer in the film and its promotion."

How Orwellian.

I wonder how many people check to make sure the movie they've already paid to watch rolls this disclaimer in its credits?

That was the part of the article that stuck out to me. And I'm one of the oddballs who actually watches and pays attention to all the credits of movies I see at the theatre.

I could see them forcing a credit that there was an accident involving an animal and changing the the disclaimer to include the word intentionally.

//I would place my bet on a number greater than 0, but too small to matter.

I look that kind of thing up ahead of time.

Fortunately, the advances in CGI technology are making this a moot point. You can safely bluescreen an animal and then create a scene later on using CGI. You can also bypass animals entirely and go directly to CGI. For example, the adult direwolves in Game of Thrones are CGI.
