So did they kill Vick's dogs or what?
Some of you may remember back in August there was a story about how Vick's dogs were likely to be euthanized by court order. Well, it's October now. What the hell happened?
Luckily there's finally a decent story in this sordid mess, and Vick might want to start watching his back.
All but one of the dogs seized in the Vick dog fighting case will be placed with families or put in a "sanctuary," where they will interact with people to overcome their fear and lack of socialization, according to a court order filed Monday.
I know I'd pay money to see what happens when Vick runs into Killer and Spike one afternoon.
The one unlucky dog "has a history biting humans" (and probably ripping other dogs to shreds) so it'll be drowned personally by Vick. No, I kid. It'll be euthanized. Then shot by Vick.
Anyway, I always love the official version of how the government justifies euthanizing a dog, so here you go:
U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg on the dog -- identified as number 2621 -- "exhibited intense aggression to humans to the point where the evaluation could not safely be completed."
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the same thing people said about Marcus Vick?
