Say Goodnight to Vick’s Pit Bulls
If there’s one thing we’ve all learned … it’s that you don’t mess with a man’s best friend. And you especially don’t mess with said man’s friend when they’ve been through war-like situations together. It is with that in mind, that I’m saddened to say that Michael Vick’s fighting dogs may be euthanized.
“Almost 100 percent” of animals seized in dogfighting investigations are euthanized because they have a level of aggression that makes them dangerous pets and neighbors, said John Goodwin, a spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States.
“It’s simply not fair to someone who has a black lab or a Yorkie to have a fighting dog next door because if that dog gets loose, he’s going to … kill that person’s pet,” Goodwin said, making it clear he was speaking in generic terms only.
Wow, this is no joke. 66 dogs were seized, 55 of which were pit bulls. Yeah, somehow I don’t think I want my golden retriever getting into a scuffle with them, capiche? Oh, and for the record, anyone else find it odd that they use a treadmill to train these dogs? OK, good, just checking.
(the gruesome image is for anyone who thinks there’s nothing wrong with dog fighting)
