Last week Michael Vick was linked to what appeared to be a pit bull fighting operation in Virginia. The property that housed the dogs is owned by Vick, but apparently is maintained by a relative.
PETA and some other sources claim that the dogs were used for fighting.
Vick met with NFL commish Roger Goodell to clear things up and ensure everyone this was just a misunderstanding and that he was unaware of the situation. Vick has stated "I left the house with my family members and my cousin. They just haven't been doing the right thing. The issue will get resolved."
Well, now some information that clears things up has been located.
Apparently, Vick owns a company that breeds pit bulls. And the company even has a website that lists the Virginia property as the address and Vick's lawyer as the managing agent of the parent company.
But no need to worry.
VicksK9Kennels.com states that, "We do not promote, support or raise dogs for fighting and will not knowingly sell, give, or trade any dog that may be used for fighting."
And Vick's forthrightness with the commish, his revealing months after the "water bottle" incident that he was just carrying jewelry and his general upstanding character all should put our minds to rest.
The website disclaimer says it all. Move along people. Nothing to see here.
