Michael Vick Got Off Easy

In Saturday's New York Times there is an article about the wreckage aftermath of the dog fighting ring in which Michael Vick was a central figure. Here's a glimpse:
"But there is one haunting sign that Georgia [one of the rescued dogs] might have endured the most abuse of any of the 47 surviving pit bulls seized last April from the property of the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick in connection with an illegal dogfighting ring.

Georgia has no teeth. All 42 of them were pried from her mouth, most likely to make certain she could not harm male dogs during forced breeding."

It is, at turns, a very unpleasant article to read and also one that offers hope for the animals. Additionally, there's word that that a television show about several of the dogs is in production.
