* A British TV series called ''999'' -the direct TransAtlanticEquivalent of ''Series/Rescue911''- once staged a reconstruction of a fire in a horse barn, leading presenter Michael Buerk to add a disclaimer at the end that not only were none of the horses injured during filming, they were all trained performance animals and weren't even ''scared'' for real. (And for the record, all the animals involved in the actual fire were safely evacuated and suffered no lasting harm.)

* Averted in ''Film/OnBodyAndSoul'', which was filmed at a slaughterhouse and includes a scene of a cow being slaughtered. The closing credits say "Some animals were harmed during filming, but none of them for the sake of this film," that is, the cow would have been slaughtered either way.



* The film version of ''Film/HowToEatFriedWorms'' had the disclaimer, "No worms were harmed in the making of this film." Then it cut to the part where a worm placed in a microwave to heat exploded and added, "Not even this one."



* When ''Film/TheAdventuresOfMiloAndOtis'' was released in the US, there were allegations that the Japanese filmmakers had put the animals in perilous situations with insufficient safeguards and numerous kittens had died. The allegations were ultimately never proven, and the film was released with a nonstandard "The animals used were filmed under strict supervision with the utmost care for their safety and well-being." Since it was a Japanese picture, the American Humane Society never officially approved it, but the Japanese SPCA was present on set, so claims that they were in fact careful may be true.

* On Creator/RossNoble's appearance on ''Live At The Apollo'' he put an imaginary turtle in a drawer but left it open a gap so it wouldn't die. He tried to talk about something else but commented that the audience was still looking at the turtle. He then said that no imaginary animals were harmed in the making of his show... except the imaginary panda that he then procided to beat up, while discuss what is so good about beating up a panda.

** This seems to be a common occurrence in cannibal exploitation films, such as ''Film/CannibalFerox'', where they killed several animals on-camera for the movie. Though Giovanni Lombardo Rodice DIDN'T do so (and in fact hated making the movie), and when told that [[Creator/RobertDeNiro De Niro]] would have done it by director Umberto Lenzi, said, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "De Niro would have kicked your ass all the way back to Rome!"]]
