Vick Admits Dog Killing

NFL star Michael Vick has admitted that he and his co-conspirators killed dogs that did not fight well in papers filed on Friday with a federal court in Virginia.
Vick said he would plead guilty to one count of "Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce in Aid of Unlawful Activities and to Sponsor a Dog in an Animal Fighting Venture," in a plea agreement filed at the federal district court in Richmond, Virginia.

The charge is punishable by up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, "full restitution, a special assessment, and 3 years of supervised release," the plea deal says.

Federal prosecutors agreed to ask for the low end of the sentencing guidelines.

"The defendant will plead guilty because the defendant is in fact guilty of the charged offense," the plea agreement says.
Now that he has admitted guilt everyone should flood the NFL with calls and e-mails telling them that Michael Vick should never grace the playing field again. His behavior was sub human and he must never be in a position to influence children again.

The links to dog fighting and animal abuse sites keep getting sadder and sadder. When are people going to learn that animals are sentient beings - they feel pain and they suffer, just as we do. Every major world faith teaches us to care for animals. Please help us spread this message. Come visit us at Animal and find out how.
