Michael Vick may be in hot water again, at least with animal activists, after he tweeted out a picture of himself that included a box of Milkbone Dog treats.
PHILADELPHIA, PA (Catholic Online) - The picture shows him working on his tablet computer while his daughter is doing homework at the same table. At the edge of the photograph is a box of Milkbone treats, which are only suitable for dogs.
Vick was banned from owning a dog because of his conviction for animal cruelty. Michael Vick was sent to prison for owning and operating a dogfighting ring. However, his probation has ended and he may now legally own a dog.
Vick has stated that is he ever gets another dog he would allow his children to pick it out and it would not be of the pit bull variety.
Pit bull dogs normally make good family pets, however dogfighters routinely abuse the breed for fighting.
