Michael Vick, Mel, and The Key to Dallas

I don't know if you remember, but awhile back I posted an entry with a youtube video showing some behind-the-scenes Michael Vick statements. This was after he was presented the key to the city of Dallas. We were all outraged about about that but were even more outraged when we saw him on the video saying he didn't care about the dogs he fought and killed.

Included below is an article from The Dallas Morning News that I think you will enjoy! GO MEL! :)

Over the weekend, council member Angela Hunt surprised Richard Hunter by presenting him the John LaBella Award at an Eastlake Pet Orphanage banquet.
If you don't know Hunter, he is the owner of Mel, a black pitbull. Mel is in a good home now, but he started life as a bait dog in the Bad Newz kennel run by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
During the presentation, Hunt had some choice words for Mayor Dwaine Caraway, who presented Vick - a felon who abused and killed dogs in his kennel - with a key to the city of Dallas.
"One of my colleagues in the city of Dallas showed a grave lapse in judgment by awarding the highest honor our city can bestow - our key to the city - on someone who was entirely undeserving and someone who has shown serious cruelty and inhumanity," she said.
Hunt then awarded Mel with an edible key to the city.
To be clear, Mel does not have a criminal record.
