Default Dogs seized in Vick investigation face deadline, could be euthanized

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2986955

Quote:
RICHMOND, Va. -- More than 50 pit bulls seized from Michael Vick's property face a Thursday deadline to be claimed. If no one comes forward, they could be euthanized.

Federal prosecutors filed court documents last month to condemn 53 pit bulls seized in April as part of the investigation into dogfighting on the Vick's property. No one has claimed any of the dogs, which are being held at several unspecified shelters in eastern Virginia, the U.S. Attorney's office said Wednesday.

sadly, I thought of this earlier this week. I mean what do you do with any dog that was trained to fight..I thought... They can't be family dogs because of what has happened to them... so i thought they would be euthanized.

however.. only solution I could think of is if these dogs possibly could be turned over to the police for k-9 or to the military..that is the only hope for any of these dogs..

If they are euthanized, it seems like some sick form of irony to me.

Default Re: Dogs seized in Vick investigation face deadline, could be euthanized

Honestly I'm not sure even they would want them...I assume most their dogs that go through training begin very young with no previous training of any kind.

It's terrible for it to end this way but it might be the only option.

They have to put them down. If they don't we will read on CNN.com that someone has been killed by one of the dogs.

Ok, gotta point it out in spite of my feelings on the whole matter.

Vick kills 8, the government kills 50?

Ya know you're gonna get this defense from those who support him

They will be humanely put down - not tortured. Big difference.

Again, I'm not defending Vicks actions, I'm pointing out what you're gonna hear from that side. To respond to your statement. I'm not sure how you can use humanely, and death in the same sentence. To me, death is death, some methods seem more horrendous than others, but I personally wouldn't choose any of them for myself

The government has to put them down because of Vick. These dogs won't be able to safely interact with other dogs or humans and are a risk.

No disagreement at all with your arguments guys, the guilty party is Vick. But have you ever tried to reason with the unreasonable?

A judge in Houston tried that last year in the big dog fighting case last year

"Update August 24, 2006 As you may know from the posts below, Texas Justice of the Peace Phil Fitzgerald has refused to allow the puppies of the 225 adult pit bulls seized from a breeder, to be spayed/neutered. There is no appeal from that order.

The judge has also ordered the pit puppies shall be sold at auction. "


This was a well thought out judicial decision

exactly.

And don't forget, all of us pay for dogs and cats to be killed by the pound everyday with our tax dollars.

Don't get it twisted. Vick is going to jail for setting up for being involved in interstate dog fighting and gambling. The horrid details of how he killed the loser dogs were inserted just to paint him to be more of a villain.

Some of these dogs are probably not fully grown...

I would imagine that some, not all, can be saved....

He should be charged with there deaths as well since he mistreatd them and now have to be put down out of mercy, he is still at fault.

I think anyone who still supports vick should have to spend the night with a few of those dogs and in the morning if they are still alive re-ask them if they support mike vick.
