Yes, you read that right. The guy whose name has become synonymous with hanging, electrocuting, drowning, and shooting dogs and forcing them to rip each other to pieces in dogfighting rings is now bemoaning the fact that he can't have a canine companion.
No need for immediate concern. Vick has been banned from owning dogs for three years as part of his probation. PETA believes that no one who abuses dogs as Vick did should ever be allowed to have access to vulnerable animals again. And really, being prohibited from experiencing the unconditional love of a dog is a tiny price to pay—much smaller than the ultimate price paid by the dogs Vick abused and killed at Bad Newz Kennels.

Michael Vick is nothing more than a murdering criminal. A remorseless sociopath. In my mind he should still be in jail. For him to "own" a dog is no different than giving a pedaphile a child. All you Eagles fans...get a friggin' clue you idiots. Football? Who gives a rip? These were beautiful, feeling, caring dogs that truly are our best friends offering unconditional love and maybe more importantly unqustioning trust. I don't have hate in my heart but this monster evokes as close as I will ever come.How he could do what he did and still show his stupid smirk covered face is beyond me. These people that say "he did his time, lighten up". Bite me! First of all, he did not do enought time. Secondly, he should never have been allowed back into the NFL. But I guess in that macho, testostarone driven world they don't think he did anything so wrong. They were after all, just dogs. *** the NFL and their greedy dollar driven machine where psycopaths like Vick can exist and thrive. But, you know the good thing? He will one day be judged by the One who matters. A room in hell awaits you Vick.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
