A cow is shot with an automatic gun, and is then hit by a car. A man crushes a frog in his hand and then throws it against a tree. A dog is shown struggling underwater (but you're not shown if it dies)

The main characters escape a chain gang and have manacles. Several other prisoners and chain gangs are shown throughout the film that are manacled in the same fashion.
