Hollywood actor Brad Pitt is made headlines when he started producing a movie that frightened farm animals. The filming was taking place in the countryside of Northern Ireland so you can imagine that the setting was tranquil and quiet. The movie is called “The Lost City of Z” and the setting is in the 1920s. The story is about a British soldier and spy who disappears in the Brazilian jungle along with his son in 1925. They were searching for a long lost civilization which the spy called Z and so was never seen again. For special effects the film makers had to create loud noises and explosions. As a result the residents and farmers of the town of Ballygally began complaining that the loud noises were scaring their animals. It is not known if Brad Pitt was in the town at this time. The residents of the town stated that the explosions started on September 14 and started to become louder and bigger. People said it started to seem that a war was going on and the noise was enough to shake the windows in their houses. It was the hardest on animals. Dogs were shivering beneath chairs and hens doing a disappearing act. One farmer said his cow and calf jumped the hedge and other cows were crying in fear. Since Mr. Pitt is a famous animal rights activist surely once he heard about this he would do something to make it so that the animals would not suffer and get so frightened. What do you think should be done if such a film frightens local animals? Read more:

I believe that they can go without all the noise, with the modern techniques they can add the explosions later. Animals should not suffer for films making.

I believe he should have planned for that happening. There is no way that he would not be aware or realize this. He should have provided something or some way for the animals to be shielded from it or just do this somewhere else.

So right @TiarasOceanView especially since he is an animal rights activist.

@RasmaSandra It is astounding that this happened considering him being so activist.
