Last week, Michael Vick held a press conference in Richmond, Virginia to make a public statement and apology.
After his speech, a representative with the Humane Society of the United States went to the podium to get his microphone, and found a self-written note left by Vick highlighting his talking points.
In his note, Vick reminded himself to apologize, apologize, apologize.
His note says: 1. Apologize for what I’ve done, 2. Apologize Commissioner, AB, Petrino, ashamed disappointed, 3. Young kids I acted immature, 4. Forgiveness & understanding, 5. Take full responsibility for my actions, and 6. We all make mistakes I’ve made mistakes in judgment.
At the bottom of the note, Vick wrote “dogs have suffered.”
“Watching video of the event, I recall Vick reading through his talking points. I don’t recall him getting to those words at the end. No, for some reason, he didn’t get to the dogs on whom he inflicted such tortures. The biggest apology of all was left unspoken-to the dogs who suffered and who died so horribly at his hand,” wrote Humane Society President Wayne Pacelle.
The Humane Society has put the note up for auction on eBay. Proceeds will benefit the Humane Society’s Animal Cruelty Response and Reward Fund.
