Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
From an old issue of Harper’s Magazine, we learn that filmmaker, Werner Herzog, has a thing for chickens. Says Herzog:
“Years ago I was searching for the biggest rooster I could find and heard about a guy in Petaluma, California….I went out there and found Ralph…who weighed an amazing thirty-two pounds! Then I found Frank, a special breed of horse that stood less than two feet high. I told Frank’s owner I wanted to film Ralph chasing Frank — with a midget riding him — around the biggest sequoia tree in the world….But unfortunately, Frank’s owner refused. He said it would make Frank, the horse, look stupid.”
We mustn’t sacrifice the dignity of one species for the glorification of another.
