A movie by Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has the headlines for scaring farm animals. Filming is place in the countryside in Northern Ireland in the U.K. The movie is called 'The Lost City of Z' and is in the 1920s. It is about a British soldier and spy who into the Brazilian jungle in 1925 with his son. They were for a lost civilisation, which the soldier called Z. He was never again. Film makers needed to explosions and other loud noises for the movie's special effects. However, locals and farmers in the town of Ballygally that the loud bangs frightened their animals. No one knows if Mr Pitt was in the town at the time as he is not in the film.

Local people in the town said the explosions on September 14 and gradually became bigger and louder. Some locals said it like there was a war going on as the noise windows in houses. One farmer to reporters about how his animals were "terrified". He said: "The dog was under a chair and the hens had all . Then I there had been another explosion while I was out….Another neighbour’s cow and calf the hedge and the cows were in fear." Mr Pitt may do something special for the local people as he is a famous animal rights activist and might be upset if he heard animals had because of his film.
