Steven Seagal Denial - I'm No Dog Killer

By Staff
Sep 3, 2011

Action man STEVEN SEAGAL has called in his lawyers following allegations a puppy was shot dead during a dramatic police raid filmed for his reality TV show.

The Under Siege star joined officers from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department in the March (11) bust on Jesus Sanchez Llovera's Arizona property because they believed he was breeding roosters for illegal cockfighting.

Llovera has denied the claims and blamed cops for causing "substantial damage" to his family home and killing his kids' 11-month-old puppy and more than 100 of his roosters.

Seagal and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio have both been served with an official notice of claim, the first steps towards a lawsuit, with Llovera demanding $100,000 (£62,500) in damages.

But the action man has hit back at Llovera, admitting he may sue him for "fabricating the puppy killing" rumour.

He tells TMZ.com, "I’ve been called a lot of things in my career, some of them not so kind. But to be labeled an animal abuser is beyond the pale and that is simply a role I will not accept."

The incident was caught on camera for the upcoming season of the martial arts star's reality show, Steven Seagal: Lawman.
