The statement read, “The producers completely reject the accusations that 27 animals died due to mistreatment during the making of the films. Extraordinary measures were taken to make sure that animals were not used during action sequences or any other sequence that might create undue stress for the animals involved.”
 
It went on to say, “Any incidents that occurred that were brought to [producers'] attention as regards to this care were immediately investigated and appropriate action taken.” He also stated that hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent on the welfare of the animals and the majority of animal shots in The Hobbit are CGI.
