Everybody in the world is piling-on poor Michael Vick about his unique attitude toward his animal compansions, so this balanced news story deserves some play:
ATLANTA–Michael Vickâ€™s attorney, Billy Martin, spoke today at length about the dog-killing allegations leveled against his client and insisted that Vick ate â€œevery single dogâ€ that was killed on his property, dispelling the notion the dogs were killed merely for sport.
â€œMichael would never just kill an animal for the sake of sport,â€ Martin told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. â€œThatâ€™s wrong and itâ€™s disgusting. The fact is, he ate all those dogs after he killed them. He cut them up and cooked them on his grill. They’re actually quite delectable if you apply the proper seasoning. So Michaelâ€™s really no different than your average hunter.â€
Martin did admit that Vickâ€™s methods of killing the animals were slightly different from those used by hunters, but contended that the methods were â€œmerely a technicality.â€
Indeed. Now read the whole thing or I’ll have Instapundit pay you a visit with his puppy-blender.
