'Survivor' Pig Killing Prompts New Law


By Ronnet, 07/19/2001 

BRISBANE (Reuters) - An Australian state is bringing in new animal welfare legislation following the controversial slaughter of a wild pig early this year by a participant in the hit U.S. reality show, ``Survivor.''

A new code of care for animal stars in film and television shows filmed in tropical Queensland would be introduced shortly, the state's primary industry minister said on Thursday.

Animal welfare groups were flooded with complaints and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals launched an investigation after ``Survivor,'' filmed in north Queensland's outback, screened a cast member killing a wild pig with a knife.
