Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan Under Investigation Over Animal Cruelty Complaints


Cesar Millan, best known as the “Dog Whisperer,” has managed to do the unimaginable – he got caught up in a storm of animal cruelty complaints, as one recent episode of Cesar 911 showed an aggressive dog biting on the ear of a pot-bellied pig.

To make matters worse for Millan, there was even some blood involved. Not a fountain of blood, mind you, just a small bruise. However, it was enough to cause disturbance among viewers. It was also enough to involve local police. After receiving the complaints regarding animal cruelty, Santa Clarita Sheriff’s deputies responded by showing up at the celebrity dog behaviorist’s pet sanctuary. Upon arrival, they were unable to locate Millan. It is expected that they will attempt to visit him again later today.

National Geographic Wild releasing the following statement:

“Millan was working with Simon, a French bulldog/terrier mix, who frequently attacked other animals, including his owner’s pet pot-bellied pigs. A short clip from the episode was shared online and showed Simon chasing a pig and nipping its ear, causing the ear to bleed. The clip caused some concern for viewers who did not see or understand the full context of the encounter. The pig that was nipped by Simon was tended to immediately afterward, healed quickly and showed no lasting signs of distress.”

Ironically, Millan actually managed to deal with the dog’s behavioral issues, helping him overcome his aggression. Here’s what the statement concludes:

“Simon did not have to be separated from his owner or euthanized.”
