Good morning fellow animal advocates.
Today’s newsletter is very disturbing, as it involves
And to make it even more unreal, a famous NFL quarterback is at
the center of the charges.

Michael Vick indicted for illegal dogfighting
The Associated Press
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was indicted Tuesday by a federal
grand jury on charges related to illegal dogfighting.
Vick and three others are charged with competitive dogfighting, procuring
and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across
The dogfighting operation was named “Bad Newz Kennels,” the indictment states,
and the dogs were housed, trained and fought at a Surry County, Va., property
owned by Vick.
The indictment alleges that the 27-year-old Vick and his co-defendants began
a grisly dogfighting operation in early 2001 in which dogs fought to the death
????? or close to it.
Losing dogs were sometimes killed by electrocution, drowning, hanging or gunshots.
If convicted, Vick and the others ????? Purnell A. Peace, Quanis L. Phillips and

It once again goes to show how so many people just don’t value or respect
pets as members of our family..Mr Vick and friends see dogs as nothing

I am glad that he has been indicted.
I hope that he gets some period of jail time.
I hope that prosecutors make a statement that this is NO LONGER acccepatable.
But we will see…
I will keep you all posted.
