Ecorazzi.com asked for a received a response from the Humane Society of the US, on the topic of Michael Vick’s recent admission that his family now includes a dog, after the completion of his probation period on dog fighting crimes.
The HSUS representative circles around the issue, in the statement included on the Ecorazzi piece.
The organization has worked with Vick in an effort to shine a spotlight on dog fighting, so I understand the reluctance to speak out too harshly. But I believe this is a case where consistency, precedence and fairness come into play. No one convicted of such cruel acts should ever be allowed to possess pets again.
