The dog was not in a corner, she could have easily moved back or away. She chose to bite instead.
Cesar did not "create" that monster, the dog already had the food guarding issue, or he wouldn't be there. He simply brought it out and revealed it at its worst.
As I said, I am sure other methods had already been tried. They may not be shown because they are not as dramatic or exciting to viewers, and we are talking about mainstream media here, ratings and money.
Whether you agree or disagree whether it should have been done, the fact remains that this dog was revealed to be dangerously aggressive, unpredictable, and willing to bite at any time. If she'd have bitten him when he first moved her off the food bowl, that would be one thing, but she chose to bite at a moment that he had retreated, released the pressure, and was not threatening. She was not cornered or even leashed.
