LOS ANGELES (AP) — No charges will be brought against TV "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan following an investigation of animal cruelty complaints involving an episode in which a dog nipped a pig's ear.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office on Monday released a prosecutor's summary of the case and decision to not bring charges.

The statement says the investigation showed the dog accidentally escaped Millan's control. It says people present instantly captured the dog, attended to the pig and called in a veterinarian, who found there was no need for treatment.

Millan says in a statement he's pleased but not surprised because his animal handling procedures are safe and humane.

The complaint was started online and based on March footage from Millan's television show "Cesar 911," in which a dog was undergoing behavior modification.
