PHOENIX (AP) _ The makers of the movie ``No Code of Conduct'' are paying to treat a flock of pigeons maimed by explosions set off during the filming.
Some of the blasts were intended to scare the birds and send them flying out of harm's way. Other explosions were part of the action-adventure movie, which stars Charlie Sheen and his father, Martin Sheen.
During one filming session last week, as many as 50 pigeons were killed. Several others were left with charred feathers, burned beaks and eyes seared shut.
To make amends, Toddler Productions of Los Angeles plans to pay for the feeding and medical care of the injured birds, said Michelle Marx, spokeswoman for the production company.
