PETA protesters on the Hobbit red carpet

Wednesday 28 Nov 2012 6:45 p.m.

By 3 News online staff

Animal activists dressed in ‘grim reaper’ costumes protested at the world premiere of The Hobbit, holding signs which referenced the alleged death of animals involved in the making of the film.

At least two people in black costumes held signs saying, “3 horses died for this film”, and, “The Hobbit: Unexpected Cruelty”.

The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) had earlier warned that their members would attend the event.
