Michael Vick: indicted

Posted by: Hammer / 10:18 AM

Wow. The Madden Curse has reached new heights:

NFL star Michael Vick was indicted today on a federal conspiracy charge for his alleged role in a dog fighting venture that operated from a Virginia property owned by the Atlanta Falcons quarterback. A copy of the indictment, filed today in U.S. District Court in Richmond, can be found below. The 27-year-old Vick, whose nickname is listed as "Ookie" in the indictment, allegedly established the Bad Newz Kennels in early-2001 in Smithfield, Virginia. It was this property, for which Vick paid $34,000, that the star athlete and his codefendants used as the "main staging area for housing and training the pit bulls involved in the dog fighting venture and hosting dog fights." According to prosecutors, Vick and his cohorts began purchasing pit bull puppies in late-2001 and would eventually "sponsor" individual dog fights with purses as high as $26,000. In the indictment's most harrowing parts, federal investigators describe what happened to some Bad Newz Kennels dogs that either lost matches or did not perform well in test fights. After a March 2003 loss by a female pit bull, codefendant Purnell Peace, "after consulting with Vick," electrocuted the animal.

It will be interesting to see how the NFL handles the indictment of one of the new faces of the game. Personally, I have little forgiveness for people who electrocute dogs.

But people who let their dogs eat baby bunnies are A-OK tho?

I didn't train my dog to eat those bunnies. He was born that way. I do everything I can to keep bunnies out of my yard and Buster's belly.

I think you perpetuated within your home a culture in which the eating of bunnies was not discouraged. I think it is no wonder that a dog raised in such a social setting would manifest bunny eating tendencies.

Send the dog to my house, I'm tired of bunnies. Mr. McGregor was right!
