LOS ANGELES (KTLA) –  A new lawsuit claims HBO and an animal welfare group covered up alleged horse abuse while shooting the HBO series “Luck.”

The show was cancelled in March of 2012, after at least three horses died in connection with the show’s production.

A former American Humane Association (AHA) executive, who says she was wrongfully terminated after complaining about inhumane conditions on the show, says the AHA helped HBO cover their mistreatment, even though horses were underweight and/or drugged during filming.

HBO says they “exceeded every safeguard” in caring for the horses during production on the series.

    As a horse owner I find this reprehensible. Domesticated horses are animals that need 100% care. Anyone that would mistreat a horse is the lowest scum.
