its good to see federal authorities getting more involved in this.

Report: Dog remains found at Vick house
NBCSports.com staff report

Nearly three dozen dog carcasses were found Thursday during a search of the grounds of the Virginia property belonging to Michael Vick, ESPN Radio is reporting.

WVEC says two parallel investigations are underway into whether dogfighting occurred on the Surry (Va) property, Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Poindexter told the station on Friday.
Surry County is still considering charges in the case and Poindexter says it appears the U.S. Attorney's Office has an investigation of its own, after federal authorities conducted a search.........


Meanwhile, the Falcons quarterback cancelled a planned football camp, which was scheduled for June 30-July 3.
The cancellation was announced on the camp's Web site and cited "scheduling issues" as the reason, according to several reports.

Good news for fantasy football owners . . . .

Sources: Vick unlikely to be indicted in feds dogfighting investigation
ESPN.com news services

Updated: July 6, 2007, 5:55 PM ET

 SURRY, Va. -- Federal authorities have filed court documents outlining an alleged dogfighting operation at a property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, The Associated Press reported Friday.

Vick is not named in the documents.

Additionally, Vick is unlikely to be indicted in the dogfighting federal investigation, according to information gathered by the NFL and Atlanta Falcons, sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The authorities have told the Falcons and league that there has not been any evidence that can be tied to Vick with the alleged dogfighting ring, the sources said.

The law enforcement authorities have privately told league and team officials that at least three people are expected to be indicted but the identities of those individuals were unknown.

I doubt it.  I don't think the feds would roll over for this guy.  He probably just did a decent job of covering his tracks (assuming he was actually involved in dog fighting).

Falcons' Vick indicted by grand jury in dogfighting probe
ESPN.com news services
Updated: July 17, 2007, 5:57 PM ET

 Michael Vick has been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the dogfighting probe of his property in Virginia.

The indictment alleges that Vick and his co-defendants began sponsoring dogfighting in early 2001, the former Virginia Tech star's rookie year with the Falcons.

The Falcons quarterback was indicted for conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District in Richmond, Va. Three others -- Purnell Peace, Quanis Phillips and Tony Taylor -- also were indicted by the grand jury on the same charges.

The indictment states: "If convicted on the Travel Act portion of the conspiracy charge, each defendant faces a statutory maximum of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and full restitution. If convicted on the animal fighting venture portion of the conspiracy charge, each defendant faces one year in prison, a $100,000 fine, or both. The indictment also includes a forfeiture allegation seeking recovery of any property constituting, or derived from, proceeds obtained directly or indirectly as a result of these offenses. "

According to court documents filed by federal authorities earlier this month, dog fights have been sponsored by "Bad Newz Kennels" at the property since at least 2002. For the events, participants and dogs traveled from South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, New York, Texas and other states.

Members of the venture also knowingly transported, delivered and received dogs for animal fighting, the documents state.

Fifty-four pit bulls were recovered from the property during searches in April, along with a "rape stand," used to hold dogs in place for mating; an electric treadmill modified for dogs; and a bloodied piece of carpeting, the documents said.

The property was used as the "main staging area for housing and training the pit bulls involved in the dog fighting venture," according to the filings.

The documents said the fights usually occurred late at night or in the early morning and would last several hours. The winning dog would win from "hundreds up to thousands of dollars," and participants and spectators also would place bets on the fight.

Before fights, the participating dogs of the same sex would be weighed and bathed, according to the filings. Opposing dogs would be washed to remove any poison or narcotic placed on the dog's coat that could affect the other dog's performance. Sometimes participants would not feed a dog before the fight to "make it more hungry for the other dog," the documents said.

Fights would end when one dog died or with the surrender of the losing dog, which was sometimes put to death by drowning, strangulation, hanging, gun shot, electrocution or some other method, according to the documents. The property has an above-ground swimming pool, and investigators were seen looking into the pool Friday.

During a June search of the property, investigators uncovered the graves of seven pit bulls that were killed by members of "Bad Newz Kennels" following sessions to test whether dogs would be good fighters, the documents said.

Members of "Bad Newz Kennels" also sponsored and exhibited fights in other parts of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey and other states, the filings said.

On June 7, federal law enforcement officials descended on the property with a search warrant. More than a dozen vehicles went to the home early that day and investigators searched inside before turning their attention to the area where officials found dozens of dogs in late April and evidence that suggested the home was involved in a dogfighting operation.

Surry County officials had secured a search warrant in late May based on an informant's information to look for as many as 30 dog carcasses buried on the property. The warrant never was executed because Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald G. Poindexter said he had issues with the way it was worded.

The results of that search have remained sealed.

At the time, Poindexter expressed surprise at why the federal government was involved.

"What is foreign to me is the federal government getting into a dogfighting case," Poindexter said. "I know it's been done, but what's driving this? Is it this boy's celebrity? Would they have done this if it wasn't Michael Vick?"

A day later, "They launched a separate, independent federal investigation," Poindexter said of the government, which has had a representative involved in the local probe all along.

A search warrant affidavit said some of the dogs were in individual kennels and about 30 were tethered with "heavy logging-type chains" buried in the ground. The chains allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to have contact, one of myriad findings on the property that suggested a dogfighting operation.

Vick initially said he had no idea the property might have been used in a criminal enterprise and blamed family members for taking advantage of his generosity. He also put the house up for sale and reportedly sold it quickly, although there is no record that the sale has closed. Vick has since declined to talk about the investigation.

Now some of you guys can see the types of horrors pitbulls go through. By far the most exploited/abused breed on the planet. You read the part about how they tested how "game" the pits were? If they did not have enough "game" they electrocuted, drowned , shot or strangled them. That type of stuff happens all the time. Instead of letting the dogs live, they torture them if they are not "game" enough to fight. Fucking sick bastards.

The Feds have a greater than 95% success rate of convictions after indictments. Doesn't look good for thug boy!

He could have murdered his wife or been drunk and high, doing lines of coke as he ran down a group of Boy Scouts and still been ok with the NFL. Nobody would protest or do anything other then argue the punishment handed down, on sports talk radio. Now the league will face boycotts by animals lovers, possible suits by PETA or the Humane society etc. As an owner of three dogs, this prick need to be banned for life.

You think that's bad...the cops now have a back hoe on the grounds, looking for a cache of dead dog bodies.

It's been confirmed that Vick himself killed upto 8 dogs. He threw some down on the ground, and some he would soak wet and electrocute them

A couple of stomach churning quotes from the AP story. And don't you just love the name "Bad Newz Kennels", what a bunch of scumbag thugs. I'm sure all these clowns have between 4-8 kids with different mothers and I'm sure they don't support any of them. These scumbags produce future criminals faster than bacteria reproduce in a petri dish.

http://sports.iwon.com/news/07182007/v3247.html

"About eight young dogs were put to death at the Surry County home after they were found not ready to fight in April 2007, the indictment said. They were killed "by hanging, drowning and/or slamming at least one dog's body to the ground."

"Some of the grisly details in these filings shocked even me, and I'm a person who faces this stuff every day," Goodwin said. "I was surprised to see that they were killing dogs by hanging them, and one dog was killed by slamming it to the ground. Those are extremely violent methods of execution - they're unnecessary and just sick."

"When a Bad Newz Kennels dog was wounded in a losing fight, NFL star Michael Vick was consulted before the animal was doused with water and electrocuted."

" Sometimes, dogs weren't fed to "make it more hungry for the other dog."

"Started in early 2002, according to the indictment, Bad Newz Kennels began purchasing pit bulls to train as fighters. Eventually, the defendants bought shirts and headbands "representing and promoting their affiliation."
