Kris Jenner has plenty of fun toys to play with, from her tricked out cars to the fellow reality stars she’s been hanging on the arm of lately. But her latest photo prop has landed her in some hot water.
During a recent trip to Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis’ Mexico abode with rumored beau Ben Flajnik, the Kardashian matriarch posed next to a 600-pound seas lion rented by Joe from a nearby water park, prompting PETA to give ol’ Kris a little lesson about playing nice with animals.
“Sea lions are wild animals,” a PETA rep tells RadarOnline.com . “They’re not party props, playmates or pool toys! Animals forced to interact with visitors or perform tricks such as handstands are often trained in cruel ways, including beatings and food deprivation.”
The rep adds, “Sea lions are sensitive living beings who belong in the wild, where they have the freedom to swim long distances, lounge in the sun, hunt for food, and raise their families. They don’t belong in any millionaire’s backyard swimming pool!”
This isn’t the first time the animal rights organization has taken aim at the Kardashians for their treatment of the animal kingdom. In 2012, a member of PETA nearly ruined Kim Kardashian’s hair, makeup, and low-carb diet when they gave her a heavy dusting of flour at a red carpet event.
