I saw this article in today's Los Angeles Times which I thought was interesting. This is one of the more horrendous cases of animal cruelty to come along recently, and it's encouraging that so many people are speaking up.
The article contains quotes from Ingrid Newkirk, among others.
Reaction to Michael Vick
"A Falcons source said the team received 'a ton of ugly phone calls,' not just from season ticket holders in Georgia, but from places such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maine.
Asked to characterize the calls, the source said: 'I'll say this, people are very passionate about their pets.'"
Even though many people still strongly disagree about vegetarianism, animal liberation, and other issues, it's nice to see there's unity in the overwhelming outrage about animal cruelty. Maybe consciousness about these crimes will go up a notch after this horrible story.
