Animal Rights Furious With Sarah Palin Over Abuse of Pet Dog

SARAH PALINSarah Palin, the former Governor of Alaska and one time vice-presidential candidate, has become embroiled in a row with animal lovers after posting a picture of her six-year-old son standing on a dog. She wrote:

“May 2015 see every stumbling block turned into a stepping stone on the path forward. Trig just reminded me,”.

He, determined to help wash dishes with an oblivious mama not acknowledging his signs for “up!”, found me and a lazy dog blocking his way. He made his stepping stone.”

However the shot of Trig, who has Down’s Syndrome, using Jill, the family’s pet as a footstool to reach the sink, provoked outrage on social media.

In addition People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a welfare group, did not see the funny side.

It issued a statement calling Mrs Palin a “bizarrely callous woman.”

Ingrid Newkirk, the organisation’s president, added: “It’s odd that anyone – let alone a mother – would find it appropriate to post such a thing, with no apparent sympathy for the dog in the photo.

“PETA simply believes that people shouldn’t step on dogs, and judging by the reaction that we’ve seen to Sarah Palin’s Instagram photo, we’re far from alone in that belief.”

Mrs Palin was unrepentant, telling PETA: “Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.”

The remark was aimed at President Obama who, in his memoir, admitting eating dog meat in Indonesia.
