KAY Burley has been criticised for her outpouring of sympathy over a lost dog during the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris.

As the Sky News reader, who is a known animal lover, was broadcasting live after the tragedy, she tweeted a picture from Paris of a golden retriever with the comment, “sadness in his eyes.”

Angry people took to Twitter to express her disappointment at her lack of sensitivity about the 129 people who died. She later replied that she misjudged the mood.

Hours later her Wikipedia entry had been altered to mock her by saying: ”is widely known for her ability to read the inner most thoughts of golden retrievers.”
