Saddest Animal Deaths in Movies

26 Jul

Today I am sad, emotional and in a bad mood.


A year ago today my cat died. And this was not any normal cat but a cat who won a battle with a rare heart disease, then got cancer. What are the odds?

We had to put him down which basically felt like I made the decision to end his life. Even though I had an amazing vet who made me feel better about it. He was really sick.

My cat Floyd had the BEST personality EVER! Everyone loved him. He was an amazing cat! If you didn’t like cats before you met Floyd you would after you met him. I loved this little guy so much!

So when he died it was sad and hard – and I am no stranger to death, this was just a little harder for me because he was mine completely.

Floyd – Love of my life. One of them 🙂

And isn’t it the case that animal deaths are always hard for people? Like in movies I don’t care if a human dies, but if it’s an animal I am a crying mess for weeks after the movie.

I know personally if there is even a slight chance that an animal might die in a movie I won’t watch it.

So because I feel like crap – I thought I would make a list of the saddest animal deaths in movies. You’re welcome.

PS – there is so profanity below – read at your own risk.

Artax – The NeverEnding Story

Artax – The NeverEnding Story

I think this scene scared me for life. I was a mess when Artax gave up in the Swam of Sadness, even though Atreyu was encouraging him to keep going. Oh god I am crying now! Fucking Swamp of Sadness! The only thing that saved my childhood was the last scene where Atreyu is riding Artax at the end. Thank god!

Antie- Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

Antie– Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

I will never look at creamed filled cookies, Legos, ants and scorpions the same after this movie.

Fucking Scorpions! Antie had a hard of gold.

Hedwig – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Hedwig – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Really! Hedwig! Hedwig! He had to die! Like Harry didn’t lose enough already! They had to kill his pet! Ugh! Hedwig was killed during the Battle of the Seven Potters in the movie he sacrifices himself to save Harry (the book is a little different) – the book is worse because Harry has to let the sidecar (which holds Hedwig’s body) go so they can go faster. This is very upsetting to Harry, his friends and the readers. Fucking Death Eaters!

Sam (Samantha) – I Am Legend

Sam (Samantha) – I Am Legend

Like it’s not hard enough being the only living person left in New York but let’s mess with you a little more and infect your dog. The only living companion you have left. Given to you buy your dead child. Let’s make sure we infect the dog and force you to kill her. Then, let’s figure out the cure to the infection days later.

I did ask people if the dog died before I watched the movie so I could prepare myself. It didn’t help when I actually saw the movie. Even though I knew what was coming – I cried in the movie theater with everyone else who has a soul. Fucking Zombies/Vampires.

Mufasa – The Lion King

Mufasa – The Lion King

I say Scar is the evilest Disney villain ever. He kills his own brother! At least the other bad guys are just killing random people!

When Simba crawls under his dads paw – ahhh! What the hell! And then he gets blamed for that death! So sad Fucking Scar. However, I will say Scar gets it worse in the end when he basically gets eaten alive by the hyenas.

Bambi’s Mother – Bambi

Bambi’s Mother – Bambi

This is obvious. But this did traumatize me and probably every other kid that realized what was going on. Fucking Hunters.

Littlefoot’s Mother – The Land Before Time

Littlefoot’s Mother – The Land Before Time

So Littlefoot’s mom is saving his ass and that ungrateful Cera from the Sharptooth. Sharptooth basically bites a chunk out of her back and neck and kills her. Well causes her to bleed out. The last moment between the mom and Littlefoot is so sad, again what crying. Fucking Sharptooth.

Old Yeller

Old Yeller

Again very obvious, but anytime you have to put your own pet out of its misery makes the moment worse. Fucking Rabies!

King Kong

King Kong

You know it’s coming but it’s still so sad. I remember seeing the Peter Jackson version of this movie with my dad – as we left the theater there was this little kid crying on his dads shoulder. Like full on hysterical crying! Totally felt his pain. Fucking explores and Empire State Building!

Two Socks – Dances With Wolves –

Two Socks – Dances With Wolves –

Seriously the army makes Kevin Costner watch as they shoot his wolf! The wolf that stood by him the whole movie (and it’s not a short movie) I remember crying my eyes out when I was little! My grandma covered my eyes for the sex scene but not the death of Two Socks! Come on Grandma!! Fucking Army!

Charlotte’s death – Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s death – Charlotte’s Web

When Wilber is screaming CHARLOTTE!!! It breaks my heart! It makes me cry every time I see it or think about it long enough, I am crying now.

Charlotte’s death was no one’s fault. It’s just the circle of life. Fuck you circle of life and old age!

Ray – The Princess and the Frog

Ray – The Princess and the Frog

This cute Cajun firefly from New Orleans is a hero. Takes on those shadow demons, gets knocked down and then stepped on. Yes people he gets fucking stepped on! This has to be the most disturbing Disney deaths ever! Really Disney!

Obviously I am missing some. I have not seen every movie out there (thankfully) – What are some of the saddest animal movie deaths for you?

And here is to my Floyd!

    Aw, this post is making me teary eyed thinking about Floyd. He was seriously the coolest cat ever and your relationship was so special. And I agree on all the animal death scenes. My dog skip was sad too but he died from old age so that’s not as tragic.

      I have never seen My Dog Skip! But I read about it and it did look sad. Isint Frankie Muniz in that? I also have never seen or read Marley and Me – don’t plan on it either.

      Floyd was so special just like Jeffery. When is Jeffery’s anniversary?

    Sad Panda.

    What about Where the Red Fern Grows? Worst movie EVER.

    Bambi still kills me.

      I have never watched Where the Red Fern Grows or read it. Thank God! I have always heard it’s the saddest book ever! So I think I’ll pass for now. When I want to feel sad (let’s face it we all do sometimes) I might pull that sucker out and have a sobfest.
