Vick Takes Anti-Dogfighting Message To Congress
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick stepped up his message against dogfighting and is supporting a House bill that would prohibit attendance at organized animal fights.
The bill also would impose additional penalties for anyone causing a minor to attend. The football star served 18 months in prison for his involvement in dogfighting and has been speaking at churches and schools with Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States.
“Help us to reach out to these kids before they go down the wrong path,” Vick said.
