Sarah Palin tells PETA to ‘chill’ after letting son stand on dog – Orlando Sentinel

Posted: Monday, January 05, 2015

A photo of Sarah Palin’s 6-year-old son, Trig, standing on the family dog has sparked criticism and animal abuse accusations against the one-time Republican vice presidential nominee.

More than 68,500 people liked the Facebook photo, which also appeared on Instagram. But many of the 23,000-plus Facebook comments were sharply critical of the former Alaska governor after her New Year’s Day post:

“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.”

MeLinda Johnson wrote, “Poor dog! I AM NOT A LIBERAL, thank you! Common sense here?”

No child should be allowed to stand on a dog, Loreine Fitzgerald-Webber wrote, but to post it as though it was cute is infuriating. “I’m posting (as) a dog lover and mother who also had cared for children with (Down) syndrome. She is sending him the wrong message,” she wrote.
