One Of Michael Vicks Home Raided By Police

Last night late local News had a crew in Surry Virginia covering a story of Vick's home being raided by local police. They did not know what was going on only that animal control was there and that they could hear allot of dogs barking in the back yard. They did not know if the dogs where the issue but they did focus on the fact that it seemed to be allot of dogs. They also said that the home itself was raided and animal control could have been there as a percaution. The neighbors said Vick only stayed in the home a few times a year and that his cousin was the main occupant. The raid had been going on for sometime but I could not find any other info on this. Has anyone heard this?

His nephew is part of a drug investigation apparently. It's Vick's house, but he doesn't live there. His nephew does

I just tried a local news site and they had the story and you are correct. It was a drug invetigation involving his family members and here is a link.

PFT:

EVIDENCE OF "ILLEGAL ACTIVITY" FOUND ON VICK PROPERTY

As reported last night by FOX 43 and WAVY-TV, property in Virginia owned by Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has been searched by police. Per the reports, several animal control trucks were on the scene, and the sound of barking dogs could be heard.

Most of the "real" media is chasing this latest story with the same zeal that was displayed after Vick was sued for giving a former girlfriend herpes and after a water bottle with a hidden compartment that smelled not of water was found in his possession in a Miami airport. But there are indications that this one could be (key words: "could be") a doozy.

Per WAVY-TV, police discovered "animal neglect" on the property, in the form of dogs that appeared to be "hungry and forgotten."

A non-Photo-Shopped image found on the Intergoogle by Taco Bill.

In a video report on FOX 43, Surry County (Va.) administrator Tyrone Franklin says that "it does give the appearance of some activity, illegal activity."

Though Franklin doesn't specify the illegal activity, our own Taco Bill has found a report regarding the story on Pet-Abuse.com containing the following paragraph that is nothing short of a bombshell:

"Early reports indicate that Vick was allegedly running a dog-fighting and cockfighting operation from the back of the home. The Virginia Animal Fighting Taskforce was on the scene. Authorities report that Vick had been under investigation for several years for illegal animal fighting."

Holy Milk Bones, Batman.

(It's not presently known whether any roosters named "Little Jerry Seinfeld" were found on the property.)

Though it is being emphasized in media reports that Vick is rarely at the property, he owns the place -- and he surely has an inkling of what is going on there. Especially since the FOX 43 report shows images of three buildings on the property that apparently housed the dogs. Those buildings didn't just build themselves; there's a chance that they were designed to be kennels, and that Vick approved the plans and wrote the check to get them built.

Re: One Of Michael Vicks Home Raided By Police

Fighting and neglecting animals is pretty despicable. Vick doesn't exactly come across as a model citizen (Ron Mexico), and I wouldn't be surprised if he at least had knowledge of this...

No, but when you have family members living in YOUR HOUSE, I'm sure you know something of what is going on. Vick might have absolutely no knowledge, but I'd doubt it.

In the live report I saw last night the neighbors did say that Vick did stay in the home from time to time. If he knew about what was going on and how these animals where treated I would think is unknown at this time.

Of course they will say he didn't know...but how can you not? Sorry, I've never thought he was a good person...not that this is an idicator, but look at his brother.

Re: One Of Michael Vicks Home Raided By Police

If he used dogs for fighting, he should be locked up for a long time. It's sick and cruel.

Why the Falcons let Schaub go is beyond me...they're obviously going to need a replacement for Vick sooner than later. Maybe they'll trade up and get Brady Quinn. If they weren't considering it before, they should now.

Mike Vick is a disgusting person.

Doesn't really matter if he was present or not, he's responsible for what happens on HIS property.

Why am I having visions of the neglected swimming pool in "Next Friday"?
