WTF!!!QB Mike Vick Wants To Own A Dog Again!!!!…Just When Things Were Starting To Go Good!?!?
The Eagles starting quarterback and convicted dogfighting operator Michael Vickhas expressed to the media that he would like to become a dog owner again one day, as soon as his probation is over.(Source)
I was under the impression that he was banned for life from owning a pet dog, as part of his sentence on federal charges relating to dogfighting and gambling,but Vick was placed on three years of “supervised release,” meaning that at some point in 2012, he will be able to own dogs.(Source)
Vick served 18 months in prison after being convicted in 2007.
I can only imagine how much the first photo of Michael Vick walking his new pet dog will go for, but I am sure it will be high!!!…does he really want to open himself up to this type of public scrutiny again, when it seems like the public is willing to live and let live???
…I don’t know, but I do know that it will be a big distraction for his team, and it has already angered many animal activist out there today, who had their anger towards him in check, and had decided to move on.(NBC)
Since his release from prison, Mike Vick has worked with the Humane Society of the United States and makes school appearances to talk to students about his past, and to discourage them from going down the same path that led to his imprisonment.
Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle said it’s too early for Vick to have a dog, but says it could be appropriate after his probation ends.
Jane Dollinger, spokeswoman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said Vick should be banned from owning dogs for life.
…What do you think?
…I don’t know if he needs a dog right now, but judging by the timing of these latest statements just when things were going good, I know he needs a new press agent and publicist!!!!
