This article by Sally Jenkins on Michael Vick my have been posted previously, but it bears repeating. www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/21/AR2007082102093.html

GOD BLESS ANYONE WHO SAVES THESE WONDERFUL ANIMALS. I PRAY NO MORE ANIMALS ARE KILLED BECAUSE OF TRASHY vick. ALL THE ANIMALS NEED TO BE EVALUATED, RETRAINED, AND MOSTLY LOVED. ALL TRAINING, EVALUATION, FOOD, VET, ETC SHOULD COME FROM vicks BLOOD MONEY. IF I AS AN ANIMAL LOVER AND PROTECTOR CAN HELP IN ANY WAY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. AGAIN MAY GOD RICHLY BLESS ANYONE HELPING THESE CREATURES SO HORRIBLY TREATED BY TRASHY vick.

I for one am amazed that the USDA and the Federal court system are pursuing this disposition of the dogs in a reasonable manner. Perhaps they realized that allowing HSUS to euthanize the dogs would have resulted in an emormous public cry of outrage. There is no guarantee any or all of the Vick dogs will pass evaluation but now there is a chance at least one will not have to die because of Vick's arrogance.

Nice to see that PETA and the HSUS have been thwarted in their ridiculous attempts to have these dogs euthanized without any attempt to re-home them.



How ironic that the two groups who've reaped the most from this financially are the same groups that are hell-bent on seeing these dogs put to death.



I guess if the dogs are dead, no one can try to force them to shell out some of the money raised in their names for their continuing care.

this is excellent news, though I hope they involve additional experienced pit bull rescuers

I am so pleased about this. "A fair trial" is something these dogs have deserved all along, and it finally looks like that's exactly what they'll get, yay.

Great that Bad Rap will also be involved in the assessment.

Looks like the Vick case does have a silver lining. Dogfighting busts are up and wonderful people like Sheriff Butch are coming out of the woodwork.
