I hope you'll join me in boycotting the sponsors of the Eagles...and the Eagles...for hiring dog torturer/killer Michael Vick. Here is a link to the sponsors (Eagles removed their corporate sponsor list to make it harder for us). Here's a list: http://foryourentertainment.blogspot.com/2009/08/more-contact-info-for-philadelphia.html
And here's what I'm tweeting all these companies: Hey @Companyname, let me know when you stop sponsoring the Eagles, not buying Snapple til they fire dog killer Michael Vick. #Eagles Boycott
Tweet the #Eagles Boycott to help make it trend. This is just about the only recourse we dog lovers have to send a message that a "second chance" to be an entertainment star in our living rooms should never go to a man who hung dogs, drowned dogs with his own hands and electrocuted them with jumper cables.
"In America we believe in second chances". Yeah? None of the dogs he tortured to death got a second chance.
"He paid his debt to society". No, he did his jail time.
"We need to forgive him". Forgiving and rewarding getting out of jail with a plum job that by its nature makes him a role model are two different things. When someone does something evil, like he did for years, some doors should close. FOREVER. Someone who tortures the innocent does not belong in my living room...he makes me sick.
Instead of a message that "he did evil and ruined his career", the Eagles send the message "when someone gets caught doing evil, they just have to sit in jail for a while and then they can get one of the best jobs in the world back". Cause we think we can make more $$$$ with Michael Vick than without. THe repercussions for DOING EVIL TO INNOCENTS should be forever...like the forever dead dogs he killed.
Shame on the Eagles and I hope their sponsors will step up and send a message that dog killing is not forgivable after a little jail time.
Sorry for the rant, it's just so upsetting that some think that 2 years of jail makes up for the life of an innocent dog, much less MANY innocent dogs.
