Boycott the Philadelphia Eagles: Have Agreed to Pay Dog Killer Felon, Sick Michael Vick $100 Million Over 6 Years: Corrupt System and Corrupt Business

Some of you have probably already heard. Here’s just one story on this sad ending - http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=Ak1lnKLwbswYczIMTeDOUEY5nYcB?slug=ap-eagles-vick

It’s difficult to put into words the frustration and sadness this brings about. Truly crushes a lot of those I’m around. As we all struggle daily to get any attention to our issues, some sick, gangster felon, who can run fast and throw a football, even after brutal animal abuse conviction, is now, once again, a rich person.

I can only ask each of you to just keep moving forward. It’s obvious our system is sick and corrupt, and the NFL truly is, the National Felon League. They care little about honoring good behavior and, instead, look the other way and hire felons just to make themselves rich.

Perhaps everyone has forgotten just how sick he really is. Well, if you’re one of those with a short memory, let me help remind you by reading out post: Forgotten How Sadistic Michael Vick is? “Jumper cables were clipped onto the ears of...dogs…connected to...batteries before…tossing...into water"

Oh, and here’s another one: “Vick did all that and more to his dogs, and even threw family pets into the pit with fighters and laughed while they were mauled, according to a witness who testified to federal investigators.

Sadly, it’s Not just Chinese who Eat Dogs: People in Thailand and Vietnam Do Too: Proof? Video and Photos of Thai Police Break Up Dog Smuggling Ring

We all know that the Chinese are the cruelest on Earth, but those in Thailand and Vietnam apparently also like to torture and eat dogs. Yes, sadly, it is true. Proof? Look at the photos and video for this story at http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2011/08/thai-police-bust-dog-smuggling-ring/ Thankfully, this group was saved.

Here are some facts about this story:

“More than a thousand dogs headed for the dinner table were spared when Thai authorities uncovered a massive dog smuggling operation last week.

Jammed into crowded cages at the Nakhon Phanom Animal Quarantine Station, the future of the dogs is still in question, but officials hope to send a strong message to would-be smugglers: three suspects now face charges including unlicensed trade in animals, illegal transport of animals, transport of dogs to an area under rabies monitoring, cruelty to animals, and violation of vaccination law, among others.

According to Nakhon Phanom Governor Rerngsak Mahawinijchaimontree, “Police believe all the dogs would have been transferred to a ship waiting in Ban Phaeng district of Nakhon Phanom before going across the Mekong River to be sold in Vietnam, where lots of dogs are ordered to be cooked as famous exotic dishes.”

Endangered Gorilla Hidden in African Prison with Poachers: Luckily is Found

Seems they were attempting to smuggle her from the Democratic Republic of Congo into Rwanda. Sick f…s.

I can only express happiness that the baby gorilla was found. What a bunch of sick bastards.

“On Sunday night, a female baby mountain gorilla was found in an African jail, curled up on a bed alongside poachers who attempted to smuggle her from the Democratic Republic of Congo into Rwanda, according to the World Wildlife Fund. Rwandan authorities said the poachers had bought it for $15,000.”

Puppy Mill - Shadow Mountain Kennel - in Missouri Poses as Rescue Group: HSUS Calls for Investigation

Wow, another liar using lives to profit. I added some paragraphs in below that summarizes the situation, but you can read the whole story at http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2011/08/mo-puppy-mill-posing-as-dog-rescue-group/

“The HSUS’ complaint contends that Laymon is violating the state’s consumer protection law, also known as the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, by deceiving the public into believing that the dogs in her operation are rescued from other facilities, when in fact many of the dogs may be coming directly from her puppy mill.”

“The HSUS named Laymon’s breeding facility, Shadow Mountain Kennel, as one of the worst licensed puppy mills in the state in its 2010 and 2011“Missouri’s Dirty Dozen” reports. The kennel received a “dishonorable mention” in both reports based on consumer complaints about sick and dying puppies Laymon allegedly sold over the Internet, as well as USDA and state inspection records citing Laymon for numerous violations of federal and state welfare standards.”

“The violations included excessively matted dogs, inadequate veterinary care, and dirty housing conditions. In 2009, the USDA fined Laymon $7,125 for repeated violations and suspended her license for three years. However, Laymon continues to be licensed by the Missouri Department of Agriculture even though she has been cited by that agency at least 36 times for animal care violations.”
