on Mike Vick's mistreatment of pit bulls

A question about Mike Vick's completion of his jail sentence for killing pit bulls came up during a radio talk show. Callers to the show said that they would have a hard time forgiving Vick for what he did.

As a matter of fact, I would not be able to forgive him at all. The dogs he mistreated and ultimately killed could have lived a better life with a loving owner or owners. Vick is lucky that I wasn't there to witness what was happening to those dogs. I would have probably killed himself without feeling one bit of remorse.

Now, Vick probably only has his conscience bothering him, if at all, for what he's done. Even worse, he's denied a number of loving dog owners pets that would have been appreciative in good homes.

Don't know how else to express my outrage. Abandoning a dog or any pet for that matter is wrong, to be sure, but to do what Vick did is even worse on so many levels.
