Perhaps those women on The View, such as Barbara Walters - so sure MV has
"learned his lesson" - should get copies of this book. Maybe Barbara
would not let him babysit her Chi after all once she gets a good look at
his heart and his consciousness....and his 'I-am-above-it-all' arrogance.
Book Author, Kathy Strouse, has launched her first book, 'Badd
Newz-The Untold Story of the Michael Vick Dog Fighting Case'. Strouse
takes you deep into the seamy underground world of dog fighting for the
behind the scenes story of the Michael Vick case. Meet the sheriff's
deputy who started it all, the USDA special agent who investigated the
federal case, the animal control officer who helped them and the
assistant US Attorney who prosecuted the case.
She reveals the
never before reported twists, turns, obstacles, plots and setbacks that
made building a case against superstar Michael Vick the challenge of a
lifetime. Readers will be shocked to learn how close and how often Vick
came to walking away from justice. The sheriff's deputy, the USDA special
agent, the animal control officer and the assistant US Attorney were all
fueled by a determination to rescue the innocent dogs and to bring Vick
and his Badd Newz crew to justice.
No dog fighting case has ever
captured the attention and the hearts of the
public like the Michael Vick
case. Most Americans had no idea that such
cruelty even existed. The
stakes in this case were very high. Success
would send a message to dog
fighters across the country that law
enforcement was pledged to stamp out
this cruelty and send the
perpetrators to jail. Climb aboard the
rollercoaster for the story of how
they did it.
Strouse is an animal control officer who has worked in the animal care
field for 26 years. She is a member of the Virginia Animal Fighting Task
Force and the Virginia Animal Control Association.
