Rastlin dogs? Where's the problem?
Dogs are sentient, thoughtful and emotional animals, just like humans. Assuming the allegations are accurate, he's a moral imbecile that deserves prosecution to the fullest extent.
People are saying "Sixty carcasses were found on his land. This was a type of Auschwitz for poor defenseless animals. Many dogs were drowned, thrown in acid, made to fight to death, and electrocuted..." Excerpts from the AP story
The dogfighting operation was named "Bad Newz Kennels," according to the indictment, 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. Losing
dogs were sometimes killed by electrocution, drowning, hanging or gunshots.
...About eight young dogs were put to death after they were found not ready to fight in
April 2007. They were killed "by hanging, drowning and/or slamming at least one dog's
body to the ground," according to the indictment.
...Authorities seized 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment commonly used in
dogfighting. About half the dogs were tethered to car axles with heavy chains that
allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to have contact -- an arrangement
typical for fighting dogs, according to the search warrant affidavit.
...Sometimes, dogs weren't fed to "make it more hungry for the other dog," it said.
