Why is Old Yeller rated G? Old Yeller is rated G by the MPAA

The practical realities of surviving on the Texas frontier (although presented in a sanitized fashion) include the need to hunt and kill, as well as treat livestock like animals—not pets. The squabbling siblings exchange threats to the point where one throws rocks at the other. Humans, dogs and wild animals fight, resulting in bloody injuries and even death. Some depictions of women and Indians may be considered politically incorrect by contemporary standards.
