Here's a little refresher as to what's going on — some animal activists are extremely upset with Millan's decision to allow Simon, who was once an aggressive dog, into the pen of Sandy's pet pig. The Cesar 911 star had hoped some interaction between the feuding animals would improve their behavior towards one another.
Unfortunately, Simon bit the pig's ear which caused it to bleed. Upon seeing this incident go down on television, Los Angeles County Animal Control received a lot of pissed off calls and now C.M. is being investigated for animal cruelty.
In response to the outrage, Sandy has come forward to stop the backlash, saying:
"I had asked for Cesar's help because Simon had a lifelong history of aggression towards animals, including my two potbellied pigs. During the filming of Simon's rehabilitation, he did nip the ear of a large farm pig and the ear began to bleed. However, the farm pig was not seriously injured and within an hour of the incident Simon and the pig were walking calmly and peacefully together."
Well, at least the animals mended their differences!
The animal lover added:
"I feel so blessed to have had Cesar's help and it upsets me profoundly that people have mischaracterized what really happened. I have a brand new life with Simon and having Cesar's help made the difference. It's the best thing that ever happened to Simon and I."
Aw. We're so happy to hear Simon is now a more peaceful dog and that the pig is fine.
So, do YOU believe Sandy?
