On June 15, 1859, Lyman Cutlar, an American settler on San Juan Island, shot and killed a pig belonging to the British Hudson's Bay Company, triggering an international confrontation. General Harney was officially rebuked and later reassigned for allowing the situation to get out of hand, and President Buchanan sent the commanding general of the Army, General Winfield Scott, to contain the situation. General Scott and Governor Douglas of British Columbia negotiated an agreement in which a token force from each country would occupy the island until a settlement was reached. San Juan Island remained under joint occupation for 12 years, but the pig was the only casualty of what came to be known as the "Pig War."
