IDA to protest Vick in Oakland
The group In Defense of Animals says it will protest outside Oakland Coliseum before Vick plays his first road game for the Philadelphia Eagles since being reinstated to the NFL following an 18-month prison sentence for his involvement in a dogfighting ring. The group says Vick has not shown proper remorse.
IDA president Elliot Katz also wrote a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell asking that dogfighting and cockfighting be specifically included in the "criminal offense" section of the league's Personal Conduct Policy.
