Tell the NFL to Drop Dog Killer Vick!

Despite worldwide outrage, the National Football League (NFL) has chosen to promote convicted dog fighter, abuser, and killer, Michael Vick, by naming him a captain at the upcoming 2020 Pro Bowl. This outrageous decision disregards Vick's vicious past.Please join us in urging the NFL to #DropVick! 

When the list of captains for the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl was announced late last year, it included Michael Vick, and people were rightly angry.

"Sometimes, dogs weren't fed to 'make it more hungry for the other dog.' Fights would end when one dog died or with the surrender of the losing dog, which was sometimes put to death by drowning, strangulation, hanging, gun shot, electrocution or some other method, according to the documents."

In 2007, the now notoriously cruel Michael Vick pled guilty to federal dog fighting charges and served 18 months in federal prison. Much to the ire of people who care about animals around the world, Vick was reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to return to the NFL in 2009.
