Many Philadelphia Eagles fans have given quarterback Michael Vick a second chance after his dogfighting issues, but now they are unhappy because of Vick’s recent problems in holding on to the football.
Vick served 18 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to funding a dogfighting operation. His three-year probation period has ended, and now Vick has acknowledged that he is a dog owner again.
Philly.com reported that Vick’s publicist released a statement saying, "I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family's decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals.”
"I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God's creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family.”
