If there is a report of animal cruelty on a production, who is responsible for investigating?

American Humane Association’s Certified Animal Safety Representatives will report any suspected abuse and animal cruelty during filming to local law enforcement and will cooperate fully in any investigation that ensues. Several Certified Animal Safety Representatives are also certified State Humane Officers in California and Virginia. However, if formal charges are filed, that is done by local law enforcement.

If an animal gets injured or dies on the set, who is responsible for filing a report with law enforcement?

The production company is responsible for reporting the incident. American Humane Association Certified Animal Safety Representatives will also submit a report.
