No One Wants Vick's Doghouse

12/13/2008 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

File this under Big Surprise: The Virginia house where Michael Vick forced dogs to fight can't be sold, even at a low, low price.

It was up for auction yesterday in Virginia, and no qualified bidders showed, so it's still available. The guy who snapped up the 4600-sq. ft. property after Vick was indicted on dogfighting charges originally wanted a mil for the place, but set the minimum bed yesterday at $590K. Seven people actually turned up, but none of them had the $20,000 cashier's check required, so they were turned away.

Vick's been in the big house in Leavenworth since this summer.

.....................Angela @ 10:13 am ...................I thought about npc, then came to your post.............It is always interesting the difference in the supporters and the detractors..........The supporters just never seem able to understand the short term and the long term effects of Vick's activities, his inhumane inner-self, wanting to do those things................Thank you for your statements.....................

Yvette and EGGO, your ignorance supercedes you:

VICK thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs belonging to Bad Newz Kennels injure or kill the other dogs.

As I understand it VICK hung approximately three dogs who did poorly in a rolling session, which lets you know if a dog is ready to be in combat. Vick and his accomplices hung the dogs by placing a nylon cord over a 2 X 4 that was nailed to two trees located next to the big shed. They also drowned approximately three dogs by putting the dogs heads in a five gallon bucket of water. It is also my understanding that Michael Vick placed family pet dogs into the ring with his trained pit bulls and laughed as the dogs caused major injury to the pets at Bad Newz Kennels.

He killed dogs that could not fight and derived extreme pleasure in watching dogs get injured and/or killed. This is not a mistake. This is not something you say sorry for. You say you are sorry when you bump into someone, not when you exhibit a pattern of behavior like this. He is sorry he got caught. He didn’t all of a sudden see why torturing animals is despicable.

Please Vick supporters look towards humanity for all of our sakes!

.......................Ok Supporters.............lets change things up.......... All the detractors of Vick, just keep trying to explain to the supporters, what happened, why the disgust, the disdain, the hate, of Vick...............................Everytime a supporter comes on, they talk about how terrible the punishment of Vick is..........a few state that maybe it was wrong, but not really that bad................Did you people actually read tall he post, the newspapers, the legal text, the interviews, the court reports?....................So, if YOU DID read, then explain what YOU know happened............What in detail, did Vick do?.............................What do you think Vick and his buddies actually did?...............and tell us just what did Vick do with his children, his money, his investments, his gambling, his killing, his lies.......................Tell us what YOU perceived took place............................This should be interesting........................................................

Angela, Sandra Brooks, Max61...

What I love most about your posts are they are well-informed, chock full of FACTS and demonstrate an actual knowledge of the case. If you notice, EGGO and his/her cohorts just shoot verbal nonsense from the hip and demonstrates not only total ignorance of grammar and spelling, but total ignorance of the facts in general. Let's face it, these people just can't grasp the deeper issues here...the sanctity of life in general, the fact that as humans we demonstrate our integrity by how we treat and care for animals in a loving and non-exploitative way.

EGGO...taking life is taking life. Genetically engineering companion animals to have a hard-wired bond with us and then exploiting them as if they were objects is so very wrong and detracts from our own humanity. If there are those that can't grasp this concept, then they are living in a world of stunning ignorance. No, Vick didn't kill any humans, but he murdered and tortured helpless companion animals that depended on him for their very existence. At least a human might have had a chance to run away...or tell. Dogs are completely and totally at the mercy of the person who owns them. If you can't see that this is the depths of evil and exploitative behavior, then I hold out very little hope for you or anyone else who is unable to grasp this concept. You're just missing something in your emotional makeup.

..........Barbara @ 7:25 pm.....................thanks...........................Some times it is frustrating that there are so many with so little knowledge of most anything..........True that this line of stories is just a small bit of life...........but wow, how can there be so many of them?..................I wish America could do better overall............I think we rank 23 rd of the industrialized nations in education.............that just won't cut it...............We have so much opportunity as a nation..............and we have so much dead weight to haul around............I actually have a lot of optimism............just not in the Vick type supporters.......................

I would like to Thank You for your caring, knowledgeable and
insightful posts. You are obviously good people who are compassionate
and care about our little friends who can't speak for themselves. I
appreciate and enjoyed reading your posts.

Thank You!!!
I am very passionate about abusing or killing animals for any type of
gain, monetary or mental.

13. It's the market that's gone bad...regardless of who's trying to
sell their home. Vick is paying for his crime, and appears
remorseful. Time will tell who really deserves forgiveness of
sorts....
Posted at 3:01PM on Dec 13th 2008 by just-sayin...

just-sayin, the "housing market" was not bad when Vick did his
HORRENDOUS acts. Is he paying for it?...getting 3 square meals a
day...the dogs he killed aren't getting fed!!!

They aren't laying around ALIVE.

OF COURSE HE "APPEARS" TO BE REMORSEFUL----HE GOT CAUGHT----MOST ALL
OF THEM, ALL OF A SUDDEN, "GET REMORSEFUL".

14. Someone please buy this place, demolish the house and build a
huge, beautiful dog park!! And yes, put Vick & OJ in the same cell!!
That would be proof there is a God up in heaven!!!

@npc,

Here is EGGO's post:

11. WOW......it's not like he is a mass murderer..........they were dogs, not people. I don't like what he did and it was against the law but come on now, people act like he killed an entire human family.

Posted at 2:36PM on Dec 13th 2008 by EGGO
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

npc,

OK, one more time, let's break it down:

EGGO said "WOW.....it's not like he is a mass murderer.....they were dogs, not people"

uhhhhhhhhhh......npc......this to me says that EGGO is down-grading the fact that these were dogs, and YES, Vick mass murdered dogs. Because they can only bark as their way of communication and not talk like humans, does not make them any less important to society. They do help society, I stated that in my previous post.

next line:.I don't like what he did and it was against the law but come on now, people act like he killed an entire human family.

npc,
Yes, he acknowledges the fact that he did not like what he did and it against the law" then follows it, "but come on now".

BUT come on now what????? npc

You know what they say when people say BUT!!!!! (Forget everything else previously said before that)

Here is the rest: "people act like he killed an entire human family."

npc, he just NEGATED his entire post with this sentence right here!!

Where I come from, we call that back-handed!!

EGGO, is trying to say it is not OK to kill an entire human family - OF COURSE IT'S NOT OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IS IT OK TO KILL DOGS FOR MONEY AND PLEASURE WHEN THE SPORTS FIGURE WAS ALREADY MAKING ENOUGH PLAYING FOOTBALL?, WHY WAS HE TRYING TO SUPPLEMENT HIS INCOME?, CUZ HE NEEDED THE MONEY?......NOT!!!!

VICK DID IT TO FEEL POWERFUL WITH HIS EGO, SO HE THOUGHT KILLING DOGS WOULD BOOST HIS EGO.
THAT IS SICK, TWISTED AND DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEVERMIND, HOW THE DOGS WERE TREATED.........uhhhhhhhhh..............I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!

It is NEVER OK to kill dogs like Vick did!!!!!!! I don't care who you are, or what you do for a living, it is not "HUMANE"!!!

Look up HUMANE in the dictionary.

Like I said, "Torch Vick's "Previous" house, and build a dog/animal park there."

That way, that property can stand for something POSITIVE instead of something SO HORRIBLE!!!!!

npc, I love animals, and stand by my previous posts.


Vick, don't drop the soap jailbird!!!

(EGGO and npc must be the same person.....WOW...do they like to spam!!!!)
Spamming is against TMZ's Terms of Service.

Okay, what I am saying is that it is unnecessary to say F-OFF and call someone a d-bag for some comments. I don't support Vick and I think that he deserved what he got, especially for lying about it so much at the beginning. I think that comments from people like Portis and Marbury were ridiculous (Marbury said that dogfighting is a sport like hunting, and Portis said that it is Vick's property he can do whatever he wants on it) and worse than EGGOs could be seen as but I'm not calling them idiotic d-bags.

Angela, Max61, Sandra Brooks (and others who have shown their humanity here)...

Thank God there seem to be more people out there with your mindset than those with EGGO's mindset (witness the lack of willing buyers for Vick's house of horrors). Perhaps those like EGGO just lack maturity at this point and as they mature and gain life experience, they will understand the true horror of abusing a living, breathing, feeling and virtually HELPLESS creature for monetary/personal gain. All one must do is look into an abused dog's eyes and the tragedy of their mute suffering becomes a gut-wrenching reality to most of us. A dog cannot really defend himself; he can't control how much food or water he gets, and, like a child, he'll continue to love the abuser and suffer in silence. I just don't understand why everyone doesn't feel this.

Barbara,
I cannot understand either! I do know that we can work together to have the laws changed and I am doing just that, BECAUSE VICK did not get the punishment deserving of his actions. I will do everything in my power, (legally) to make sure that any team that attempts to bring VIck on will be sorry. I know I will not be alone on this one by a long shot either. His issues are not just "legal issues". Vick is a monster and the things he did were Unconscionable!!!! He is a menace to society. Vick we will not support you at all. The bulk of most humans and all dogs is that we wish all the worst for you.
