HBO Television Sued for Allegedly Abusing Horses

HBO Television Sued for Allegedly Abusing Horses

An animal rights advocate has filed a lawsuit against US cable television network HBO, alleging that horses used in the filming of its series “Luck” often were drugged, sick and underweight.

Plaintiff Barbara Casey also sued her former employer, the American Humane Association (AHA), for allegedly covering up the animals’ mistreatment.

The suit alleged that horses used on the HBO series routinely were “intentionally misidentified” so that animal welfare authorities would not be able to monitor their medical histories.

HBO in a statement strongly rejected the allegations in the suit.

The television drama starring Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffmann premiered in January 2012, but was canceled after at least three horses died during production.
