Film makers force dog into churning white water against its will while making A Dog’s Purpose {VIDEO}

PETA Calls for Boycott of A Dog's Purpose Over Video Showing German Shepherd Being Forced Into Churning Waters The filmmakers behind A Dog's Purpose have come under fire after a video surfaced showing a trainer apparently forcing one of the film's animals into turbulent waters. In the video obtained by TMZ, a German Shepherd is seen clawing at a pool's edge and trying to run away as a trainer attempts to force the dog into the rushing water. The site reports that the scene was shot for movie in Winnipeg, Canada, in November 2015.

A film crew for Hollywood film A Dog’s Purpose have been criticised after they appeared to force a dog into water against its will.

The terrified German Shepherd, one of four used to make the film, fought against its trainer for a scene in which it was meant to be swimming in raging waters.

The effect of the torrent was created using eight huge motors.

A representative from American Humane who was watching over the filming has been suspended after apparently failing to intervene.

Towards the end of the footage obtained by TMZ, the dog can be seen struggling and people have to go to its rescue. As it goes under, someone can be heard shouting ‘cut it’.

The website reports that director Lasse Hallstrom was present at the time of the filming.

It is believed that the scene was shot in November 2015 near Winnipeg, Canada.

Actor Josh Gad, who did the voice over for the dog, said: ‘I am shaken and sad to see any animal put in a situation against its will.’

PETA said: ‘PETA is calling on dog lovers to boycott the film in order to send the message that dogs and other animals should be treated humanely, not as movie props.’

Amblin Partners and Universal Pictures said: ‘Fostering a safe environment and ensuring the ethical treatment of our animal actors was of the utmost importance to those involved in making this film and we will look into the circumstances surrounding this video.’

The film is being released at the end of this month.

You know how white people are about their animals. America had animal rights before human rights for black people

I love animals, but some people love dogs more than humans.
