There’s no gray area
when it comes to The Grey—this film has been rotten to wolves from the get-go.

Lying to PETA

Long
before filming started, PETA met with a producer of
The Grey
and explained how animals used in movies often spend most of their time
confined to chains or cages when they are not performing and may be beaten or
deprived of food in order to force them to perform. The producers assured us that
they would use only computer-generated imagery and animatronic wolves—but
we’ve now learned that they reneged on their
promise. 

Eating Wolf Meat

Director
Joe Carnage—oh, excuse me … Carnahan—ordered
wolf carcasses flown in
for the cast to eat so that the actors
would “have a sense of the movie we were making .”
He bought the meat from a trapper, meaning that the wolves likely suffered horribly
in traps before being killed.

Not
surprisingly,
Liam Neeson, no friend to animals,
was game for eating wildlife. 

The Big, Bad Wolf

A
film that has the potential to scare more people than “Little Red Riding
Hood,” The Grey portrays these intelligent,
family-oriented animals the same way in which Jaws portrays sharks. The writers paint a pack of wolves living in
the Alaskan wilderness
as bloodthirsty monsters, intent on killing every survivor of a plane crash by
tearing each person limb from limb. Yet wolves aren’t aggressive animals, and
as Maggie Howell, the managing director of
America’s Wolf Conservation Center, says, “Wolves don’t hunt
humans—they actually shy away from them.”

Don’t
just shy away—run away from The Grey
