Should animals be used in movie stunts?

A big fat NO to that question! If animals were used in movies stunts, what might happen if the movie stunt is dangerous? The animal might get hurt, or worse, die. People also have special technology to make it look like something is there but it wasn't when they were recording. People just act like it's there. That is called special effects. People can use special effects instead of animals. What would they rather do? Would they risk hurting an animal or use special effects? If people did use animals, they could use special affects to make it look like it is real, but it still wouldn't be safe.
