There is another issue; any killing animal for a movie scene must be prohibited. There are laws against animal cruelty laws in all US states. An example is Cannibal Holocaust. The film depicted the slaughter of a turtle and a decapitation of a monkey. The producers and the director received short prison sentences.
Many directors state that it is illegal to kill an animal for filmmaking in many countries. In the USA and many civilized countries, there are laws against cruelty to animals. Violation of these laws will result in jail time.
It is also important to know, animal lovers will protest, especially in the USA, where animal lovers are forming powerful groups. Hollywood does business through entertainment, and the purpose is to make a profit. The film industry doesn’t want to lose the audience, animal lovers especially. The producers also will be hauled to court.

In California, there are rules about being careful not to harm animals or people. Film directors are aware of their responsibilities in animal protection area. There are animal protection groups providing on-site people to help if necessary.
Modern special effects protect any animal. Animatronic animals, such as the prehistoric animals presented in Jurassic series, successfully animated. Steven Spielberg genial idea left out much of the violence. Prehistoric animals’ construction was expensive the studio desperately needed money to keep their activity alive. Jurassic Park became a commercial and also critical success.
Computer generated imagery can successfully replace the animals, but violent scenes involving animals must be avoided. If we talk about prehistoric animals, everyone knows that every animal is a machine, the human feelings are protected.
