Featured Animal Action

There is a scene where two guards are seen with dogs on leashes outside the building where the Israelis were kidnapped during the games. The dog seen in are actual K-9's from the Seattle Police Department being walked by their duty officers. Other animal action consists of stock footage of 5000 doves released at the Munich Olympics. American Humane was not present on set to monitor the animal action. However, after conferring with the production company we are rating Prefontaine "Acceptable".
