One thing “Family Guy” creator Seth Macfarlane doesn’t joke around about is the mistreatment of animals on movie sets. In a recent PETA interview, the funnyman shared his thoughts on the subject, and how he protected the animals in his latest movie, “A Million Ways to Die in the West”.

Speaking out against animal cruelty in the entertainment business is nothing new for Macfarlane. In 2012, he took to Twitter in response to the news that 27 animals died during the making of “The Hobbit”:

“Glad Hobbit animal wranglers have come forth about animal mistreatment. It’s an under-publicized Hollywood epidemic that needs a crackdown.”

Indeed. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s investigation into the American Humane Association (AHA), the watchdog that is supposed to be protecting animals used in the entertainment industry, the AHA’s monitoring is shamefully inadequate. Consequently, many animals have been put in harm’s way, or worse, killed.

Thanks to advanced computer-generated imagery (CGI) and ethical filmmakers such as Macfarlane, hopefully animal mistreatment in Hollywood will soon be a thing of the past.

Changing our perception of animals as things – or vessels for the fulfilment of human desires – requires a shift in moral thought.
