The makers of Pedigree Dogs Exposed, the BBC documentary film that led to
the BBC withdrawing from televising Crufts Dog Show in the UK are furious with
PETA for jumping on the films bandwagon.

Earlier this week, PETA called for the US networks to stop televising
Westminster Dog Show, citing the BBC film as evidence of unacceptable deformity
and
disease in pedigree dogs.


Pedigree Dogs Exposed was the result of two years careful research. This
film highlighted serious health and welfare concerns in pedigree dogs that many

experts agree need to be addressed urgently. However, the filmmakers have no
connection to PETA and are idealogically opposed to PETAs aims.

I am horrified that PETA is using the film to further its own, warped
agenda, says Jemima Harrison, of Passionate Productions, which made the film
for
the BBC. Our film is about animal welfare, not animal rights.

PETAs animal welfare record is appalling. It kills 97 per cent of the
dogs that come to its shelters and admits its ultimate aim is to rid the world
of what it calls the domestic enslavement of dogs as either pets or
working dogs.

In stark contrast, and the reason we made the film, is that we believe
pedigree dogs are of tremendous value to society and that something needs to be

done to arrest the damage caused by decades of inbreeding and selection for
beauty. The film is a passionate call for urgent reform to save them before it
is too late. To do that, there needs to be urgent reform of breeding
practices and dog shows.

PETA is a bunch of crackpots who do not care about anything but publicity
and making money. They have not bothered to contact us - and, indeed, if they
did we would make it very clear we do not want their support. It devalues and
marginalises a film that raises awareness to serious issues that need to be
addressed, and quickly.
