Cesar Millan Under Investigation For Animal Cruelty After Dog Attacks Pig (VIDEO)
Celebrity dog trainer Cesar Millan is under investigation for animal cruelty after his show “Cesar 911” aired a segment where a dog he was training attacked and injured a pig.
According to TMZ, numerous complaints flooded in and L.A. County Animal Control is at Cesar’s facility in Santa Clara, CA to investigate.
They want to know where the current location of the pig is and its well-being. Afterwards, they will submit their findings to the D.A.
Not going to lie, I do like Cesar, but I question his technique of training dogs.

A Nat Geo WILD representative sent us this statement:
Cesar Millan has dedicated his life to helping dogs and to showing how even the most difficult “problem dog” can be rescued and rehabilitated. In a recent episode of the Nat Geo WILD series Cesar 911, Cesar works with an aggressive French bulldog/terrier mix named Simon, who has a history of attacking 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.
We have included an additional clip from the same episode [click here to download] to provide missing context. Cesar has created a safe and controlled environment at his Dog Psychology Center (DPC) in California in which to rehabilitate some of the most extreme—or “red zone”—cases of dog aggression, such as Simon’s. It is important to clarify that Cesar took precautions, such as putting Simon on a long lead to assess his behavior, before making initial corrections and removing the leash. The pig that was nipped by Simon was tended to immediately afterward, healed quickly and showed no lasting signs of distress. As the additional clip reveals, Cesar and his animal pack effectively helped Simon to overcome his aggressive behavior toward other animals; as a result, Simon did not have to be separated from his owner or euthanized.
Cesar Millan is and will continue to fully cooperate with authorities in ?any investigation. He is confident that the investigation will show there was no wrong doing.
