Dozens of neglected dogs found in raid of Vick property

This is SUCH a shame. Hope Goodell kicks Vick out for a season or better.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2850545

SMITHFIELD, Va. -- Police conducting a drug investigation raided a Virginia house owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and found dozens of dogs, some injured and emaciated, as well as items associated with dog fighting, authorities said.

State Police Sgt. D.S. Carr said Vick's relative, Davon Boddie, 26, lives in the house. Vick owns the property, but does not live there and was not present when a search warrant was executed in a drug investigation Wednesday night, Carr said.

Boddie was arrested outside a nightclub by Hampton police April 20 on charges of distribution of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute. The search warrant was executed by a multijurisidictional task force in a narcotics probe, Carr said.

"When they had a chance to go to the site, they discovered animal neglect," Surry County Administrator Tyrone Franklin told WAVY-TV in Portsmouth.

More than 60 dogs were found in three buildings. Some appeared malnourished, scarred and injured, officials said.

Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, issued the following statement: "The Humane Society of the United States has heard troubling reports for some time that Michael Vick has been involved in organized dog fighting, and we fear that this investigation may validate that very disturbing allegation."

"We urge law enforcement to aggressively investigate this matter, and we further believe that anyone who harbors dogs for the purpose of fighting, deserves to be fully prosecuted for their crimes,'' Pacelle said. "Dog fighting is a barbaric activity that causes immense animal suffering and fosters violence in our communities. Our nation should have a zero tolerance policy for any form of staged animal fighting."

The Humane Society said dog fighting is illegal nationwide and a felony in 48 states, including both Virginia and Georgia.

Vick refused comment Thursday through a Falcons spokesman, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Joel Segal, the quarterback's agent, and Larry Woodward, a Virginia attorney who has worked with both Vick and his younger brother, Marcus, didn't immediately return telephone messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

The Surry County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation of the dogs' treatment. The office said the deputy in charge of the investigation was at the scene and unavailable for comment Thursday.

The animal rights group PETA has asked Falcons owner Arthur Blank to suspend Vick pending the investigation and "to kick him off the team if it is found that dogs on Vick's property were neglected or used for fighting."

In a letter to Blank, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it was the second time it was writing to the owner about one of his players and allegations of cruelty to animals. On Feb. 23, the organization wrote to him about defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux's felony charges in Georgia stemming from the fatal beating of a dog.

Dog fighting is illegal nationwide and is a felony in 48 states, including Virginia, according to the Humane Society of the United States.

The probe at Vick's property is the latest in a serious of embarrassing incidents for the Atlanta quarterback.

He was named in a sordid lawsuit that accused him of knowingly infecting a woman with a sexually transmitted disease and using the alias "Ron Mexico" while seeking treatment. The case was settled out of court.

Last season, Vick flashed an obscene hand gesture to heckling Atlanta fans as he walked off the field following a dismal loss to New Orleans. He was fined $10,000 by the NFL and donated another $10,000 to charity.

In January, security officers at Miami International Airport seized a water bottle from Vick that they said smelled of marijuana and had a hidden compartment. Authorities later said there were no drugs in the bottle, and Vick explained that he used the secret compartment to carry jewelry.

Just this week, Vick came under more criticism when he failed to show for a lobbying appearance on Capitol Hill in support of increased funding for after-school programs. He missed a connecting flight in Atlanta and didn't turn up for a later flight.

Vick and two other former Virginia Tech stars -- Falcons cornerback DeAngelo Hall and former Buffalo Bills defensive end Bruce Smith -- are scheduled to join Hokies football coach Frank Beamer and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a predraft ceremony in New York on Saturday to honor the victims of the recent shooting at the Blacksburg school.

If Vick gets suspended Atlanta is going to flounder without Schaub.

Just noticed Vick may not have been involved. Wonder if the commish will act.

Oh, yeah. Lots of people own multi-million dollar homes that they let a relative live in, then that guy put 60 dogs in the house, but you never figure it out.

I'm going to call bulls**t on that.

This relative was running Vick's dog-fighting venture.

I have to agree, look people whether you will admit it or not, a friggin millionaire doesn't set a guy up in that house without knowing who he is and what he's there to protect. My guess is, Michael's boyz were getting all banged up on weed and blow and eventually stopped giving a shit about the animals. I think Mike knew about the Dog fighting but maybe didn't know about the neglect, etc.

Either way I would like to see a harsh penalty to those that were left to care for the dogs. If they can prove Mike knew what was going on, then suspend his ass, but you can't take him out of the NFL on suspicion only.

Oh c'mon guys, dog fighting is HUGE in Japan.

Those animals LOVE to be forced to fight, especially the ones that get their muzzles taped up so other dogs can tee off on'em for "training".

This is as wholesome as apple pie folks, just get over it already...

Oh yeah, vick is a turd with fancy shoes.

He knows nothing but it's his property. What's the saying about birds of a feather?

Better yet was Dick managed to scrounge up a whole $10,000 for his alma mater during that terrible crisis. He makes more than that fighting those dogs.

Good God, have you people leaped to enough conclusions?

"Property" does not necessarily equal "million dollar home." For all we know the property in question could be a farm that Vick owns as an investment property. He could be letting some idiot cousin stay in the house as a favor and has no idea what he does; he may not have been there for months, if ever.

Or he could be an evil, dog abusing dick. But the point is, we don't know from the LIMITED information given in this story.

Innocent until proven guilty, remember?

And this article is CLEARLY written to envoke a strong emotional response. Apparently enough time has passed since the VT kids got whacked that the press is looking for a new flavor of the week. And who gives a **** what some PETA moron thinks about anything? EVER?

Drop the torches and pitchforks and step away.

You may well be right Frazod, this was just a good opportunity for me to take a slap at dog fighting.

But even without this, vick is still a turd with shoes.
