so vick pleads guilty, says he’s sorry. what most people don’t really get is that this is more than just killing dogs…how about 5+ years of bait supply for these “fighting” dogs? sadly, most bait used are kittens and dogs stolen from a family front yard or adopted from shelters, etc.
how about justice for those animals as well? think about it…5 years worth of killing all kinds of animals to train dogs, and killing dogs that didn’t do well.
i’m sorry just doesn’t cut it. especially for someone involved in the lucrative business of professional sports. he had endorsements, he had a 6 figure salary.
he had fans who respected and looked up to him.
he’s sorry, sorry he got caught. sorry he’s losing millions. sorry he has become a pariah.
never ever underestimate the human-animal bond. this isn’t about who’s more important kids or dogs…this is about a unique and powerful bond that people share with their pets. the pet industry is a billion dollar business. i see folks plop down thousands everyday for their pets.
people love their pets. you mess with this bond…and you may as well go live on a deserted island because just as child molesters are shunned and sometimes even killed in prison, animal abusers are a 1/2 step away from the same treatment.
