HBO's 'Luck'

Another Horse Dies on Set

There has been another fatal horse accident on the set of the HBO series "Luck" -- a third horse has died, TMZ has learned.

We're told the crew was trying to get a horse out of its stable when it reared and fell back, suffering a head injury.  The horse was euthanized at the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia.

This is the third time a horse had to be euthanized during the filming of the series, starring Dustin Hoffman.

HBO was scrambling after TMZ called 2 hours ago with the story, and the publicist, Karen Jones, stalled us while they got their story together.  In fact, when we told her about our story, she said it wasn't all true -- but it was.

Why wasn't that horse wearing a helmet? The jockeys have helmets. Are jockeys more precious than horses? No, they are not. Jockeys are odd little people, who drink too much and whip horses for money. They should all be horsewhipped!

NOT ACCEPTABLE! No animals should ever be injured - never mind die - for stupid entertainment. There needs to be a serious investigation into this neglect - and those involved who aren't doing their jobs need to be held accountable.

There is a price for fame, we all know that but still did these horses ask for fame? Nah, so why do they have to pay that price? newsletter software
