VIRGINIA – After being informed of his conditional reinstatement to the NFL, Mike Vick said he’d still like to do volunteer work during his free time. Specifically, he would like to work with his main detractor, PETA.
“I am trying very hard to repair my image, and that starts in the community,” said Vick. “I was told that PETA euthanizes thousands of dogs each year so they don’t starve to death … and well, I’m pretty good at killing dogs.”
Since his release from jail, Vick has been worked construction, mentored at a boys and girls club, and is currently helping after school at a local high school. “This is my chance to help the ones that I hurt,” sai
d a remorseful Vick. “You know, by killing them.” After a long pause he added, “So they don’t starve on the streets.”
Our attempts to reach PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk were unsuccessful as she is on her honeymoon with her second husband, Joey, a 6-year-old Cocker Spaniel she met at an anti-fur rally.
Whether or not Vick is able to work with PETA, this initiative is definitely a step in the right direction. More efforts like this, and not being signed by the Cowboys, should help him restore his image as a regular thug, rather than a dog-murdering thug.
