I don't know if anyone else saw the the show that Bryant Gumbel hosts on HBO this week, but they did an expose on the world of dog fighting. It's as bad as you can possibly imagine. The losing dogs are usually killed off, and instead of shooting them, the sadistic owners usually do something cruel to them. One genius hooked up electrical connections to each ear of the dog, and then electrocuted him. Vick (or his buddies) are alleged to have done the same thing to dogs.
They also talked about a case where a normal dog was stolen from his yard, and then thrown into the ring against a real killer dog, as fresh meat. In order to make it even more gruesome, they broke the dog's hip prior to throwing him into the ring, so that he wouldn't be able to fight back effectively. Somehow, the dog survived and dragged himself back to his own yard. The owner got him to the vet, and the dog survived, although he will always have problems walking.
One of the fans of dogfighting said that it's just like football - it's a brutal game and only the strong survive. Uh, no. Football players choose to participate in a relatively dangerous sport. They aren't thrown into a ring and made to fight for hours until their neck and/or organs are ripped open.
If karma exists, then there is a special place in hell for these sadistic freaks. It would be great if Vick could be introduced to the prison version of the rape stand soon. Put it on PPV.
