The dogfighting scandal that put a hold on Michael Vick’s NFL career is back in the news.
The star quarterback isn’t back to his old ways, but many animal rights activists are concerned after learning he now owns a dog.
“I understand the strong emotions by some people about our family’s decision to care for a pet. As a father, it is important to make sure my children develop a healthy relationship with animals,” Vick said in a statement.
“I want to ensure that my children establish a loving bond and treat all of God’s creatures with kindness and respect. Our pet is well cared for and loved as a member of our family. This is an opportunity to break the cycle. To that end, I will continue to honor my commitment to animal welfare and be an instrument of positive change,” he continues.
