If he is allowed to play, then you can bet your bottom dollar that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ("PETA") will protest any owner, general manager and team who signs Michael Vick. However, if a recent press release is true, then PETA is being hypocritical.
According to The Center for Consumer Freedom, PETA killed 95 percent (95%) of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008, killing an average of 5.8 pets every day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters.
According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers.
How many pitbulls did Michael Vick kill? While I do not agree with the killing of most animals except for food and survival situations, it is extremely hypocritical for these organizations to be protesting Michael Vick. Yet if these allegations are true, then PETA is only mirroring the local governments. A simple news search will reflect the numerous cities that regularly KILL pit bulls. I guess we only care about pit bulls when it is good for a media spot. To me, that's hypocrisy!
