It seems that most people (and horses we're sure) are happy that HBO's series Luck has been canceled.

So the director, Michael Mann, executive producer David Milch and Dustin Hoffman are having a "wake" for the show at

HBO Cancels Luck After Third Horse Death

Filed under: TV NewsHorses

We previously mentioned that a third horse died on the set of HBO's new series Luck.

Well now they've shut down all future production of the show.

And PETA sure is pleased.

PETA released a statement:

"Knowing that old, unfit, and drugged horses were forced to race for this series, PETA is glad that HBO has finally decided to cancel the show. We thank the whistleblowers who refused to let these horses' deaths go unnoticed.

Should Milch, Mann and HBO decide to start the series up again, PETA will be calling on them, as we have done from the start, to use stock racing footage instead of endangering horses for entertainment purposes.

PETA has called on law enforcement to investigate the deaths of the horses used on the set and to bring charges as appropriate."

Still clinging to their guns that they did everything they could to prevent the deaths, HBO released a statement:

"Safety is always of paramount concern. We maintained the highest safety standards throughout production - higher in fact than any protocols existing in horse racing anywhere, with many fewer incidents than occur in racing or than befall horses normally in barns at night or pastures.

While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won't in the future. Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision."

It's sad that that whole crew is now out of a job but we're glad that at least no more horses will be dying.

This is getting ridiculous.

How many horses have to die before someone realizes they're doing something wrong?

It's like the NYC horse carriages all over again.

On HBO's series, Luck, a third horse has died on set.

But we'll take cute real wolves any day!!

These wolfies don't look so deadly…

Probably because they're actor wolves, auditioning to play werewolves on True Blood.

On the show's blog, a picture was posted of the wolves and had a caption that read:

New HBO Doc Madonna Of The Mills Sheds Light On The Cruel World Of Puppy Mills

Filed under: Film FlickersAnimal RightsAdoptionPuppyDogRescueAnimal Cruelty

What a powerful trailer.

HBO will be airing a new documentary titled Madonna of the Mills, which sheds light on the cruel world of puppy mills in America.

Laura Flynn has rescued over 2,000 dogs from many puppy mills of Lancaster County, PA. In this doc, she exposes the "nasty secret" of America.

"All of those cute puppies that are sold in pet stores come from 'puppy mills.' Their mothers spend their entire lives in tiny, unsanitary cages, never walked, never petted, never doing anything but making puppies . When these dogs can no longer produce litters or money for their owners, they are put to death – stoned, shot, drowned or starved."

She is only allowed to take the dogs who are considered "useless" when they can no longer give birth to puppies.

Producer Kelly Colbert hopes that everyone can view this doc, "especially those still tempted to buy a puppy from a pet store despite the virtual inevitability that the pup was born of suffering, and the fact that buying a puppy mill puppy will condemn the breeding dogs to a lifetime of misery."

The documentary Madonna of the Mills will premiere on HBO2 on Wednesday, August 24. For more information about the film and the efforts behind it, including info on the dogs featured on the film, CLICK HERE.

It's a must-see for anyone with a heart.
