Just in case you ever questioned the true intentions of the Humane Society of the United States, this little tidbit ought to help clear things up a bit.
Since being convicted, sent to jail and eventually released on probation for his involvement in the illegal torture and slaughter of fighting dogs, Michael Vick has changed his ways. Now he’s a HSUS spokesman, a champion of the anti-dogfighting cause. And as such, he believes, he’s now ready to have a pet of his own.
In an interview with NBC News and TheGrio.com, Vick said:
I would love to get another dog in the future. I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process.
I think just to have a pet in my household and to show people that I genuinely care, and my love and my passion for animals; I think it would be outstanding. If I ever have the opportunity again I will never take it for granted. I miss having a dog right now. I wish I could. My daughters miss having one, and that’s the hardest thing: telling them that we can’t have one because of my actions.
Yeah, that must be hard.
But not to worry, Michael Vick won’t be suffering doglessly for much longer ’ not if Wayne Pacelle, the president and chief executive HSUS, has anything to say about it.
In a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Pacelle offered the following vote of confidence:
I have been around him [Vick] a lot, and feel confident that he would do a good job as a pet owner.
And just in case you thought that was a one-time slip, Pacelle followed it up with a novella length post on the subject on his HSUS blog.
Not to get preachy about it, but I think Vick’s dogs ’ [...], the ones the HSUS wanted to euthanize (after begging for donations to help save them) ’ might disagree.
In fact, while speaking to a group of school children just last week, Vick admitted that while it’s important to take care of pets ‘with all your heart,‘ if it weren’t for his arrest,
Honestly ‘¦ Yeah, I’d probably still be doing it [dog fighting].
Well heck, give that guy a dog! Don’t you think the Vick girls deserve a puppy for Christmas?
