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

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