Vick Indictment Draws Attention to Pit Bull Fighting

Hosted by

Michael Vick has been indicted for sponsoring illegal dogfights across state lines. Even the Humane Society says the practices involved were unusually brutal. The indictment against the quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons says losing dogs in his operation often died in the pit or were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. The National Football League calls that "cruel and degrading," but points out that the charges have not been proven.  Wayne Pacelle is president of the Humane Society of the United States.
