People walk by the Embassy Theater where a giant statue of the character Gandalf from the upcoming movie "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" overlooks the passersby in Wellington, New Zealand, Monday, Nov. 19, 2012. Animal wranglers involved in the making of “The Hobbit” movie trilogy say the production company is responsible for the deaths of up to 27 animals, largely because they were kept at a farm filled with bluffs, sinkholes and other “death traps.” (AP photo/Nick Perry)
