Surprised no one posted about it on here yet, guess i’ll be the first. I’m so upset. Just because he’s volunteering with the Humane Society to regain his position in the NFL means that we should overlook the fact that he fought, bred, electrocuted, and hung these innocent animals. I am reading a book about his dogs called “the Lost Dogs” by Jim Gorant if anyone wanted to read it.
I think it is possible to change. Many of us have a past that incorporated exploiting or hurting animals. Yes Vick did do wrong and I don’t believe he should ever have any animal for a pet. However, if he does want to change his life around and start doing the right thing, it should definitely be encouraged. he should have consequences though.
It seems like everyone has forgotten about his crimes. My mother actually told me that she thinks he could have changed “with the right help.” I don’t believe that at all. It takes years to sort out the kinds of mental illnesses that would enable a person to torture animals in the way he did. Not to mention he supposedly now owns another dog.
I read “The Lost Dogs” by Jim Gorant, and it is probably now one of my favorite books. It’s sad and shocking in parts, but I loved it. It has definitely reaffirmed my hate for Vick.
Due to walking so many at my local animal shelter, I have honestly fallen in love with pit bull-type breeds. They are so amazing and are definitely not the monsters they are portrayed as.
