More on this petition:
Cesar Millans methods are inhumane, in my opinion and his shows need to be taken off the air. In this episode, Cesar used pigs as bait for a dog who was a known pig killer and all for "entertainment" purposes and this is not the first time he has used bait animals. This is wrong! Using animals for bait is against the law. A complaint has been filed to Animal Control for animal cruelty for using animals as bait in Cesar911 Reality TV shows. Cesar Millan is currently under investigation for animal cruelty. We need your help. We need to have the voice of MILLIONS of you shouting now NO MORE abuse on any Reality TV shows again. One of the officers on this investigation with Animal Control called me today March 22, 2016, asking for more people to speak up and come forward about any abuse they witnessed while working, volunteering and or as a trainee in one of his courses at the DPC. He said that this case will remain open for a year so that people will have time to come forward as witnesses to any abuse to any animals. Please call with any concrete evidence not angry calls, CONCRETE evidence that you yourself witnessed any kind of abuse while working with, volunteering or as a trainee at the DPC. 562-658-2000 ask for Officer Ferrufino. Please sign the petition. It will be sent to Courteney Monroe, CEO of National Geographic. The American Humane Association is responsible for the protection of animals during the filming of any movie or tv. I spoke with Mark Stubis, the head of communications with AHA who put out this statement. Their contact information is: firstname.lastname@example.org and call them: 818-501-0123 or 818-574-7779. MESSAGE TO NAT GEO REALITY SHOW: ABUSE IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE "Animal abuse is never acceptable, and should never be tolerated. American Humane Association has received complaints regarding an episode of a Nat Geo reality television series featuring Cesar Millan. As this country’s first national humane organization, we are always vigilant about stopping abuse wherever it occurs. We saw what so many concerned Americans saw in that segment. Clearly, the treatment of the animals did not meet our stringent “Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media.” American Humane Association oversees the humane treatment of animals around the world with our No Animals Were Harmed® animal welfare program, but sadly we are not invited to protect the animals featured in reality television productions. We call on the entertainment industry to have American Humane Association on all of their productions with animals, including reality television, so that American Humane Association can ensure that all animals in entertainment are safe and humanely treated. Situations like this should never, ever happen again. All animals deserve to be humanely treated, and abuse must end now." According to California State Law West's Annotated California Codes. Penal Code. Part 1. Of Crimes and Punishments. Title 14. Malicious Mischief. § 597. Cruelty to animals ..."(a) Except as provided in subdivision (c) of this section or Section 599c, every person who maliciously and intentionally maims, mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal, or maliciously and intentionally kills an animal, is guilty of a crime punishable pursuant to subdivision (d).(b) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision (a) or (c), every person who overdrives, overloads, drives when overloaded, overworks, tortures, torments, deprives of necessary sustenance, drink, or shelter, cruelly beats, mutilates, or cruelly kills any animal, or causes or procures any animal to be so overdriven, overloaded, driven when overloaded, overworked, tortured, tormented, deprived of necessary sustenance, drink, shelter, or to be cruelly beaten, mutilated, or cruelly killed; and whoever, having the charge or custody of any animal, either as owner or otherwise, subjects any animal to needless suffering, or inflicts unnecessary cruelty upon the animal, or in any manner abuses any animal, or fails to provide the animal with proper food, drink, or shelter or protection from the weather, or who drives, rides, or otherwise uses the animal when unfit for labor, is, for each offense, guilty of a crime punishable pursuant to subdivision (d).... This law is also stated in the petition but for your use when you are emailing and calling. Demand that Cesar Millan shows be to taken off the air. His shows cause the public to imitate his behavior with their own dogs causing children to witness abuse in their own homes to their family pets. This needs to stop. We NEED your support. We are their voice.
