PETA Offers Free Animal Sensitivity Training to NFL

Published by PETA.

This Michael Vick dogfighting scandal is just not going away, and now that Clinton Portis has decided to shove his oar in, things are starting to get really heated.

You can read that letter here, and I’ll leave you with a little picture that an ex-colleague of mine sent in of the jeep she drives around in near Vick’s old hometown in Virginia. You’re a brave girl, Misty.
