53 of Vick's Dogs Slated for Execution

I always thought that Michael Vick was a thug and, perhaps even worse, a bad quarterback. The best stats guys in the business, Football Outsiders, ranked Vick in 2006 37 of NFL quarterbacks which really ouches as there are only 32 teams.

But the bigger ouch is for anyone who cares about the NFL and animals and is following the bad news:
Fifty-three dogs seized from NFL star Michael Vick’s property in Surry County, Va., could soon be destroyed, as no one has come forward to claim an ownership stake in the animals. The deadline is today.

Because fighting dogs aren’t fit for adoption, there is little chance they’ll survive unless they are needed as part of the case against the Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others, a police spokeswoman said.
