| clunky early-sound western with weak leading characters
As the previous reviewer stated, despite the title, this is not an animal film. Human stars Buzz Barton (a teen) and Francis X. Bushman Jr. don't have much presence, and the continuity is confusing. There is a good supporting cast (Edmund Cobb, John Ince, and the unforgettable Black actor Fred "Snowflake" Toones, who sings a country song (and well, too!) in one scene, and tries to out-Stepin Stepin Fetchit in the rest of the film), but not much else to offer. I've been watching some of director J.P. McGowan's late-silent films recently, and at his best he's quite efficient and creates a good pace with some interesting shots, but this must have been a for-hire job that he wasn't really into very much. As a fan of low-budget indie westerns of the early 30's, I'd put this is the lowest 25% of early-sound westerns. It may not be lost, but it's not worth finding or spending the time to watch.
