ASPCA To Evaluate Dogs Seized From Vick’s Property

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will evaluate dogs seized from Michael Vick’s property.  A press release on ASPCA’s website says a team of animal behavior experts will look at the dogs and make recommendations to the USDA and U.S. Attorney’s office regarding their disposition.  The news comes after the U.S. Attorney’s office said ASPCA Forensic Veterinarian Dr. Melinda Merck took part in the excavation of graves found on Vick’s property.  Dr. Merck also conducted an examination of the remains discovered.

Vick appeared in a Virginia courtroom Monday to plead guilty to a charge of conspiracy in a federal dogfighting case.  The plea agreement contained a recommendation from prosecutors for a sentence of 18 months in prison, but Judge Henry Hudson told Vick he will hand down an appropriate sentence.
