Animal org lashes out at Michael Vick: “You don’t care about dogs!”
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been ripped by an animal organization, claiming that the football player does not really care about animals — and that he should not be allowed to have another dog.
According to reports, when 32-year-old Michael Vick went on CNN and told host Piers Morgan that he hopes to get a new puppy for his children, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals immediately spoke out against the National Football League star, who has spent 19 months behind the cold bars of prison for illegal dogfighting.
“Vick’s journey toward rehabilitation and redemption has not reflected any direct concern for the wellbeing of animals, and we’ve never heard him express a shred of empathy toward the dogs he brutalized and killed,” the animal organization told media outlet, TMZ.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, went on, saying “Rather than talk about the horrors and brutalities of dog fighting, Michael Vick has instead chosen to focus on the consequences of getting caught.”
“The actions of Michael Vick have been simply self-serving and not remotely expressing remorse. Because of this, the ASPCA has serious concerns about Vick’s ability to be a responsible pet guardian,” the animal organization concluded.
