NFL & Atlanta Falcons: Don't let Michael Vick retire a Falcon

April 25, 2017 marked the 10th anniversary of one of the most infamous and gruesome dog fighting ring busts. That was funded and ran by NFL star Michael Vick. Vick denied any involvement and maintained that he had no idea what was happening on his own property until his co-defendants started to roll over on him. He was sent to prison for 23 months, ending his career as a Falcon.

Vick killed many of these dogs – he tortured them, he even took his own children's dogs and threw them in as bait dogs. Vick and his co-defendants hung dogs by a rope and hung them from trees til they died, he electrocuted them, he beat them with his bare hands til they died. Now Vick wants to sign a one day deal with the Atlanta Falcons so he can retire as a Falcon.

This is unacceptable and needs to be stopped. So many animals suffered because of his actions. We ask the NFL and the Falcons to reject efforts to rehabilitate Vick's legacy and career. Those dogs had no voice when he and his ring were destroying animals. We need the people to be their voice now - please help stop this. Thank you
