Yes you are correct, I appear to have taken the definition from 'maltreatment' (wrong tab in my browser), my mistake.

I would argue that the use of 'mistreat' in this context strongly implies abuse (go to Wikipedia and search for 'mistreat') which in turn implies intent or gross neglect, neither of which appear to have been a factor because otherwise we would be hearing of this as it was dragged through the New Zealand court system.

Soon we will see lawsuits for mistreatment of actors, since they didn't get a bigger trailer :P/>

The deaths are sad, but from what everyone else is saying it doesn't sound that bad. I wonder what the ratio of animal deaths was? Was it 27 dead out of 30? or Was it 27 dead out 3000 animals?

That would make a big difference...

And how does that compare to the old John Wayne movies? I'm sure some of those horses died during filming.

I would hope to see Pete Jackson implement some changes, better conditions for the animals (which I think was already stated) and he should fire his current Wranglers and hire new ones.

I don't care if I piss you off. Sometimes I post shit to piss people off on purpose. It's kind of my thing.
