Michael Vick Case Summary

Decent Essays
According to PETA (2016) “Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was convicted on federal charges related to dog fighting in 2007” (p. 1). He housed and trained over 50 pit bull dogs, staged dogfights, killed dogs, and ran a high stakes gambling ring with purses up to $26,000. When the dogs on Vick’s property were not being forced to fight, they were kept penned and chained to buried car axles. They were wet down and electrocuted, hanged, beaten, drowned, shot, slammed against the ground, or killed in some other atrocious manner when they were no longer useful to fight.
