Petition – Take Michael Vick Out of the Game!
A federal grand jury indicted NFL star quarterback Michael Vick and three cohorts on felony dogfighting charges.
This case is no short of gruesome and barbaric. Tell the NFL to suspend Michael Vick >>
The abuses described in the indictment are almost beyond belief, and include a report of Vick being consulted before the execution of a losing dog “by wetting the dog down with water and electrocuting the animal.”
The indictment also describes the “execution of approximately eight dogs that did not perform well in “testing” sessions … by methods including hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.“
Local authorities began investigating the dogfighting case after an April 25 drug raid at property owned by Vick, according to the Associated Press. On June 7, officials with the Department of Agriculture with help from state police executed their own search warrant and found the remains of seven dogs, the article reports.
The NFL expressed ï¿½disappointmentï¿½ and said ï¿½we believe that all concerned should allow the legal process to determine the facts.ï¿½ Thatï¿½s just not good enough. The alleged acts were not petty or harmless; they were nothing short of gruesome and barbaric.
Thank you for letting the NFL know there is no excuse for them to stand behind an athlete arrested for such heinous acts against animals!
