The shark in Jaws. I wanted him to eat everyone.

Regards

Mark
That shark was such a complex character. He clearly had an eating disorder. All that bingeing on sea-farers.

I vote for the dog in I Am Legend, Marley in Marley and Me, and Skip in My Dog Skip.

I'm a dog fan.

It was the look in its eyes (or beneath the hollows of its eyes) and also the look on

at the pain she'd caused her child (out of necessity of course).

You know the saddest part of any film involving an animal didn't actually involve the animal's death. It was in Born Free - when George and Joy go back after leaving Elsa to fend for herself (trying to return her to the wild) only to find her all emaciated and pathetic and just so glad to see them. I cried buckets!!!!

Wallace the monkey in The Fall.

As a child, I remember hating the scene in Daybreak when they have to leave the dog behind.

Elsa wasn't dead in Born Free, but it's up there with its sad undertones throughout.

Mufasa in The Lion King... few cartoons can make you care so much. It worked because he was shown as a powerful and mighty King, but his final words and position were weak and pathetic...it hits you differently as an adult and as a child.

Bambi's mother, 'nuff said.

Not deaths but in the first of the two Homeward Bound films, the scene with Sassy the Cat in the river was quite traumatising...so authentically done. The film packs a double punch though, when Shadow the dog falls through the wooden floor by the railway tracks near the end.

River scene:

I can't seem to find the railway track scene.

I cry at any animal being killed or hurt in a film. I can watch people being hurt and killed and it rarely moves me but when it's an animal I cry for hours, even at the rabbits in Watership Down, and that's a bloomin' cartoon.
Yes me too.

Kes
The bunny in Fatal Attraction
And another bunny in a nasty old film called The Effect of Gamma Rays on man in the Moon Marigolds

and just All animal deaths in films or real life but the above 3 spring to mind because the animals are kid's pets so it's like, double the hurt

Mufasa. When I was 3 I cried so much. I still cry now and I'm 21.

The dog in 'I am Legend'

Most animal deaths make me cry.

Really going back now ! A Kid for Two Farthings.

Was just a tot (about 3/4 yo) when my Mum took me to see this. Still have an image of David Kosoff carrying the baby goat.

I howled and howled and wanted to know where the 'unicorn' had gone.

Our elderly dog had died a few weeks before and an aunt had told me he'd gone to the doggy's heaven

So I had worked out that apart from the people's heaven, if there was a dog heaven there must be a cat heaven and so forth. I was pretty sure there was not a seperate heaven for 'unicorns' and was really worried about where this poor creature would go.

OT I know but I also had an aunt who told me to catch a bird in the garden to replace the budgie who had 'flown away' Lots of lurking, scuttling and tears followed that one.

What a family! Well that's my therapy for the week, thanks!

One-thousand percent Marley off of Marley and Me.

Had me in a blubbering mess on a flight once and decided I'd never watch the film again.

Other than that - Lion King.
