Investigators in the Michael Vick case want to search the property for as many 30 carcasses of dogs they believe that were used in dogfighting on Vick’s property. The warrant says that seven of the pit bulls were destroyed and buried two days before the police searched the property.
Also, in a SI.com article, an animal control officer that searched the Vick property goes into detail of the evidence that was found. There were treadmills to exercise the dogs, a metal shaft with a tethering arm to keep dogs in a circle, syringes and nutritional supplements. There was a long row of kennels with at least one dog in each kennel. The most convincing evidence that this “was the ‘pit’ — the dogfighting arena — was the rectangular area in the middle of the room devoid of blood. Dogfighters put down carpet to give their dogs traction.” A blood-stained carpet was also found in the house.
The president of the Humane Society of the United States states that: “there exists a dogfighting subculture in the NFL and NBA, and to have an athlete of [Vick’s] stature charged would be an enormous wake-up call to everyone in professional sports who has dabbled in or dived into the underworld of dogfighting.”
