Cesar Millan, the star of the Nat Geo Wild series “Dog Whisperer”, is under investigation over allegations of animal cruelty. The L.A. County Animal Control major case unit visited Cesar’s dog psychology center in Santa Clarita, California on Thursday, March 10 to launch the investigation, has learned.
The visit came after the department was flooded with complaints following the February 26 episode of “Cesar 911”. In the show, Cesar used a method to stop a French Bulldog named Simon from attacking other dogs. He then put a pig during the training so that the dog wouldn’t get hurt if it performed some aggressive actions. Unfortunately, the dog bit the poor pig’s ear and it started to bleed.
Later on Thursday, a rep for Nat Geo Wild released a statement to defend Cesar. “The pig that was nipped by Simon was tended to immediately afterward, healed quickly and showed no lasting signs of distress,” the statement read. According to Nat Geo Wild, Cesar managed to curb Simon’s behavioral problems and helped the dog overcome his aggression. “As a result, Simon did not have to be separated from his owner or euthanized,” the statement continued.
