Message to Nat Geo Reality Show: Abuse is Never Acceptable

share with Twitter email this

March 11, 2016 – 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.
