The Hobbit: Animal Wrangler Claims of Abuse Will Fail says Wood

Recently, TMZ caught up with Hobbit star Elijah Wood. Wood returns as Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s anticipated trilogy of The Hobbit.

Wood told a TMZ reporter that he is convinced that the wranglers who brought forth the animal abuse claims are out for a payday but will ultimately fail in their efforts.

Wood stated, “heartbreaking…I never saw any of those conditions when I was down there.” He went on to say, “All of the technicians who worked on the film take the utmost care of the animals.”

Elijah, like many doubters, are suspicious of the timing of these claims that came out a week before the premier of the Tolkien classic.

“The momentum behind the movie is already so great that it won’t have an effect on the box office numbers” – Elijah Wood
