The use of animals as onscreen performers creates many interesting legal, risk and insurance issues for production companies. Animals are used in almost every kind of production including; movies, advertising, documentaries, print and more.
Technology has allowed production companies to use fewer animals such as; the 2011 movie The Rise of The Planet of The Apes starred no real animal’s actors. In addition, animal rights groups have continued to urge filmmakers to follow current rules regarding the treatment of animals during production.
Can You Insure Animals?
Animal Mortality insurance will pay an agreed value for your animal if it dies from any accidental or natural cause. This coverage protects you against loss as a result of a variety of perils, including fire, lightning, windstorm, hail, theft, collision, upset while in transit, accidental shooting, and drowning. Plus, it pays the agreed value of the animal actor if death was caused by one of the perils listed on the policy.
