Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyEdit
In the year TA 2941, an Orc Band led by Yazneg made an attempt to kill the Dwarves, but they were all distracted by Radagast and his Rabbits who was drawing them away from the company. While Radagast continued to draw the Hunter Orcs away, the Company hid behind a rock when an Orc approaches the rock when he caught a scent. After Kili shot the Orc's warg, the Orc falls in the Dwarven's hideout and is killed by Dwalin and Bifur. Yazneg hears the Orc's cry, and orders the Orcs to go after the Dwarves. As the company hide inside a cave, the Hunter Orcs are ready to invade the cave, but that was when a band of 50 Elves led by Lord Elrond of Rivendell, attack the Orcs. All the Orcs were killed, except Yazneg and Fimbul that were forced to retreat and return to Weathertop while Thorin and Company managed to reach Rivendell.
