Pic of Palin's son standing on dog draws reaction
A photo of Sarah Palin’s young son standing on a dog to reach the kitchen sink is drawing sharp reaction both in support and in protest.
The image of Trig, presumably preparing to wash dishes, and the reclining and seemingly relaxed black Lab-type animal is posted on the former Alaska governor’s Facebook page.
The online response to the New Year’s Day post was fast. There were nearly 70,000 responses liking the photo along with a variety of comment.
Some blamed Palin, her politics, or called it animal mistreatment. Others offered her support and said the dog would have moved if it had been hurt.
The Oregonian reports that the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals chided the former governor Saturday.
Palin responded: “Dear PETA, Chill. At least Trig didn’t eat the dog.”
