A photo the three-year-old son Britain's Prince William has made animal rights groups angry. The photo is one four released the royal family to celebrate the third birthday of William's son, Prince George. It shows him sitting the grass offering white chocolate ice cream his pet dog. An animal charity immediately issued a warning to all pet owners giving ice cream and chocolate to pets. The charity is the Royal Society the Prevention of Cruelty Animals (RSPCA). It said although Prince George was just trying to be kind to his dog, it wasn't a good thing to do because chocolate and ice cream are bad dogs. The RSPCA charity said it did not advise others to follow the child's example.
Some people have defended the photo and said Prince George is not wrong. They said a three-year-old does not know which things are dangerous dogs. They said he was just playing like any child, and being kind his pet. They also pointed that the dog was not actually eating the ice cream the photo. The RSPCA said: "It is lovely that Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog cool high temperatures [but] we would advise pet owners to be cautious when giving their dogs food meant human consumption as some items, like chocolate, can be highly toxic to dogs and dairy items can be difficult them to digest." Chocolate poisons dogs, and can lead to a dog's death. Darker chocolate is more dangerous.
