Recently it came out that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are now getting flak from environmentalists for participating in the filming of their new movie, The Expendables 2, inside one of Europe’s largest bat caves.

Is it right to attack the actors for disturbing the bats? After all, the shoot was granted a permit by the government to film in the cave, and how should these actors or anyone involved in the filming, know any better? The actors are likely targets only because of their celebrity status, when it actually the failure of the Bulgarian government.

What do you think? Are the actors at fault? Let us know by answering the poll or leaving a comment below.

    Ignorance is only part of the equation: they are by their naive actions, personally guilty of bat-slaughter. But, they could redeem themselves by now becoming spokesmen for bat study, preservation, and White Nose Syndrome research.

      A celebrity spokesperson for bats, I would imagine the folks over at Bat Conservation International would enjoy that.

    I don’t think so. I say don’t boycot the movie. Let them use there money to help fix the problem.
    The actors are at the mercy of the producers. What do they care unless the concern was originally brought to there attention
