(Newser) – It's not only Kate Gosselin who's upset with hubby Jon. Now an animal rights organization is on his case about comments he made to People that his eight kids "beat up, bite, and drag around" the family's two German shepherds. The Humane Society of Berks County, where the Gosselins live, have told the family to teach the children appropriate ways to interact with their pets, Shoka and Nala, after receiving several complaints from viewers of Jon and Kate Plus 8.

Jon fired off an adamant response, insisting: "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."
