Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson and the producers of The Hobbit films have rejected allegations that animals died on set due to mistreatment.

Animal rights group Peta has claimed that up to 27 animals, including horses, sheep, goats and chickens, died during filming in New Zealand.

The group has planned protests at the first film's forthcoming premieres.

Jackson and his team said in a statement that "no animals died or were harmed on set during filming".
