We knew former Virginia Tech and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was a pretty messed up dude. You know, with the whole dogfighting-ring thing.
But apparently it was even worse than thought.
In a new report in the ongoing investigation, a person known as confidential witness No. 1 says that Michael Vick actually placed family pets in the ring against pit bulls owned by his now-infamous "Bad Newz Kennelz" and watched the animals ruthlessly attack the domesticated dogs, causing "major injuries."
The witness went on to say that Vick "thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs injure or kill the other dogs." Sounds downright delightful to us.
A convicted co-defendant in the case said at times, he suggested dogs unwilling to fight be let go, but Vick insisted that "they got to go." As in get killed.
This guy makes Ashley Dupre look like a sympathetic figure.
Mike Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison in December 2007, and is set to be released from federal prison at Leavenworth, Kan., early in July 2009.
