Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and animal control officers paid a visit to celebrity “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan’s Santa Clarita animal training facility Thursday to investigate a report of animal cruelty, authorities said.
The Los Angeles Times reported the visit was in response to an online animal cruelty complaint tied to a Feb. 26 episode of Millan’s show “Cesar 911,” where a dog nipped at a pot-bellied pig.
Authorities confirmed they visited the facility in the 20000 block of Blue Cloud Road about 5:45 p.m.
In a statement released to the media, National Geographic Wild, which airs the show, explained what happened in the episode:
“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.”
The dog ultimately did not have to be euthanized or separated from its owner, according to the statement.
“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,” the statement said.
The episode took place at the Dog Psychology Center, a 45-acre dog rehabilitation ranch.
No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
Last year, Milan was sued by a woman who claims she was attacked by a vicious pit bull that had been prematurely released by Millan’s dog training center.
The woman, a critical care nurse in Florida, declared she suffered “disfiguring open wounds, deep muscle and tendon lacerations” and bone fractures in the Sept. 23, 2014, attack, just six days after the dog had been released by Millan’s Dog Psychology Center.
