Buchanan denies Vick comments

May 14th, 2007

Former Falcons cornerback Ray Buchanan denied reports that he had indicated Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was heavily involved in dog fighting per an AJC report. Last Friday, FOX Sports Radio host Chris Landry indicated that Buchanan had intimated to him in an off-air, off the record conversation over draft weekend about Vick’s reported involvement in dog fighting.

Buchanan said that he had told Landry that Vick is passionate about his dogs, but never that it was anyway related to dog fighting. Upon hearing of Buchanan’s denial, Landry indicated that he stands by his previous report.

Buchanan played with the Falcons between 1997 and 2003, including the last three years as a teammate of Vick.

    Why is it animal cruelty when we raise fish, pigs, deer, cow, chicken’s, and other animals to. Also they hunt animals on national T.V. they cut animals heads off and put on walls, they stuff fish. We gut animals then eat then. I think that’s more like cruelty to animals. Please don’t discriminate one person who kids LOVE,when we all are cruel to animals.

    There is a big difference between the food chain and fighting dogs to the death for entertainment–even for those who choose not to eat meat or wear leather. Trophy hunters and canned hunts are also cruel, but neither negates the fact that Michael Vick is a sick individual who is alleged to have tortured dogs. He is NO role model for children; and, if he grew up with this culture, then it’s obviously warped his sense of right and wrong.
