    Call/write the NFL regarding players with fighting dogs

    Crossposted by permission from Muttley Crue:

    This is an article that I pulled off the NFL web site. Dog owners in
    America MUST show to the NFL that this is unacceptable behavior. People in
    America are fired for lesser infractions every day. Michael Vick needs to
    be suspended WITHOUT Pay until it is proven in court that he is "INNOCENT"
    which I wouldn't believe anyway. Please call AND write the NFL:
    National Football League
    280 Park Ave
    New York NY 10017-1216
    212-450-2000

    When the customers complain about the employees of the company things seam
    to change quickly. We as fans of the NFL and as pet owners must show the
    NFL that this behavior is unacceptable and we MUST act. Recently congress
    tried t pass a bill that MOST of America was unhappy about. When the people
    of America spoke by calling congress they received so many call that the
    switchboard had to be shut down. This is the message that we need to send
    to the NFL.

    RICHMOND, Va. (July 17, 2007) -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick
    was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges related to illegal dog
    fighting.

    Vick and three others are charged with competitive dog fighting, procuring
    and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across
    state lines.

    The dog fighting operation was named "Bad Newz Kennels," according to the
    indictment, and the dogs were housed, trained and fought at a Surry County,
    Virginia property owned by Vick.

    The indictment alleges that the 27-year-old Vick and his co-defendants began
    a grisly dog fighting operation in early 2001 in which dogs fought to the
    death -- or close. Losing dogs were sometimes killed by electrocution,
    drowning, hanging or gunshots.

    If convicted, Vick and the others -- Purnell A. Peace, Quanis L. Phillips
    and Tony Taylor -- could face up to six years in prison, $350,000 ($254,000)
    in fines and restitution.

    Telephone messages left at the offices and home of Vick's attorney, Larry
    Woodward, were not immediately returned. A woman who answered the phone at
    the home of Vick's mother said the family knew nothing about the charges.

    "We are disappointed that Michael Vick has put himself in a position where a
    federal grand jury has returned an indictment against him," NFL spokesman
    Brian McCarthy said.

    "The activities alleged are cruel, degrading and illegal. Michael Vick's
    guilt has not yet been proven, and we believe that all concerned should
    allow the legal process to determine the facts."

    After an initial raid in April, Vick said he was rarely at the house, had no
    idea it may have been used in a criminal enterprise and blamed family
    members for taking advantage of his generosity.

    On Vick's Web site, he lists his birthplace as Newport News, "a.k.a.
    BadNews."

    The four men were accused of "knowingly sponsoring and exhibiting an animal
    fighting venture" and conducting a business enterprise involving gambling,
    as well as buying, transporting and receiving dogs for the purposes of an
    animal fighting venture.

    Purses for the fights ranged from hundreds of dollars (euros) to the
    thousands, and participants and spectators placed side bets, the document
    said.

    About eight young dogs were put to death after they were found not ready to
    fight in April 2007. They were killed "by hanging, drowning and/or slamming
    at least one dog's body to the ground," according to the indictment.

    The FBI and local authorities have been investigating the allegations since
    an April 25 drug raid at the property Vick owned.

    Authorities seized 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment commonly
    used in dog fighting. About half the dogs were tethered to car axles with
    heavy chains that allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to
    have contact -- an arrangement typical for fighting dogs, according to the
    search warrant affidavit.

    The indictment said dogfights were held at the Virginia property and dog
    owners brought animals from six states, including New York and Texas.

    In a search warrant executed on July 7, the government said the fights
    usually occurred late at night or in the early morning and would last
    several hours.

    Before fights, participating dogs of the same sex would be weighed and
    bathed, according to the filings. Opposing dogs would be washed to remove
    any poison or narcotic placed on the dog's coat that could affect the other
    dog's performance.

    Sometimes, dogs weren't fed to "make it more hungry for the other dog," it
    said.

    When you write you also need to let them know you won't be supporting them in any way unless they do something about Vick - this means turning off the TV the next time a game is on, and not going to any NFL sponsored events.

    I wrote to them when this whole thing came out a few months back.
    This is the perfect opportunity to make a statement about dog fighting...I sure hope it happens.
    I wrote a few local television people today....to thank them for covering the story so well and showing the world  how ugly this sport (if you want to call it a sport) is. 
    I think we should all be writing or calling someone about this.
