When Charles Comes to Bark

Dog murderer Michael Vick has an ally -- the appropriately named NBA great Charles Barkley.

TMZ caught the basketball legend (at 6'6" he's easy to spot) outside of Hyde last night, where he told cameras he didn't believe Vick should be kicked out of the NFL for life, instead thinking, "He should get kicked out for a couple years and get another opportunity." Opportunity to do what?!

"Buffy" alum and "American Pie" flute diddler Alyson Hannigan wasn't exactly sentimental over Vick when TMZ asked her the same question earlier in the day, the banged-up redhead replied, "Karma's gonna get him!" Meow!
