Jon Gosselin Denies Dog Abuse
As his wife Kate kept busy running errands around town, Jon Gosselin was spotted chatting away on the phone while sitting on his ATV in Reading, Pennsylvania on Monday (June 5).
The “Jon and Kate Plus 8” star has found himself back in the headlines today, as he denied claims of animal abuse that have stacked up against him.
Talking about the family pooches, Jon previously told press of his brood: “Those kids beat them up, climb on them, pull their tails, bite at them, drag them around and everything you can imagine not to do to an animal, they’ve done.”
After the local Humane Society received numerous complaints, Mr Gosselin tried to clear the air, releasing a statement reading: “I’d like to set the record straight. We understand the responsibilities of being good dog owners. Whenever my kids are with Shoka and Nala, everyone is carefully supervised to ensure that no one – dog or child – is injured. Shoka and Nala are loyal companions who we consider members of our family. We would never do anything to hurt them, and treat them with the respect and love that they deserve.”
