Please Sign Petition To Suspend Dog Abuser, NFL Quarterback, Michael Vick

This week, a federal grand jury indicted NFL (National Football League) star quarterback Michael Vick and three cohorts on felony dogfighting charges. The National Football League is the largest and most prestigious professional American football league.

The abuses described in the indictment include a report of Vick being consulted before the execution of the losing dog "by wetting the dog down with water and electrocuting the animal."

The indictment also describes "the execution of approximately eight dogs that did not perform well in "testing" sessions ... by methods including hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground."

Our friends from the Humane Society, USA, are calling for our help to sign their petition to call for Michael Vick to be suspended from the NFL immediately!

The NFL expressed “disappointment” and said, “We believe that all concerned should allow the legal process to determine the facts.” That’s just not good enough. The alleged acts were not petty or harmless; they were nothing short of gruesome and barbaric.

Sign the petition to the NFL today, and tell the league to suspend Michael Vick! Click on the link below to sign the Petition.

    NIKE has cancelled plans to release a fifth signature shoe by Vick. PETA is planning a protest outside NFL offices in New York.

    The American public have bombarded NFL office with emails and phone calls demanding that Vick be barred from playing.

    The Humane Society USA has received more than 100,000 emails calling for the same thing addressed to NFL Commissioner, Rodger Goodell.

    This is why America is leading the world. Not because it has better weapons, but because the public and media, watchdog bodies and even government does not look the other way when an atrocity is committed - even though it is committed by a celebrity.

    The greatness of a nation is seen in the way it treats its animals - quote by Mahatma Ghandi.

    Can we ever hope to see such maturity in Malaysian society?

    Let's start with the man in the mirror. Me. I've signed the Petition. How about you?
