Vick: "Chickens ... Are Very Athletic to Me"

1/26/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The next time Michael Vick calls you "chicken" -- take it as a compliment ... because dude believes they're "uncanny" thinkers and even more spectacular athletes. Seriously.

Launch docs

PETA just released the handwritten answers Vick gave to a "Developing Empathy" test he took just after he pled guilty to dogfighting charges in 2007 -- and he scored a whopping 73.5 out of 100 ... that's about a "C."

Among the highlights, Vick explains "The Golden Rule" as doing "on to others as u want them to do on to u .... (as long the feeling is mutual)." But that's only the beginning -- check out some unedited highlights:

"People who abuse animals dont [sic] have a heart and find it amusing to see animals suffer."

"Chickens have an uncanny ability to think and are very agile. They are very athletic to me."

"My aunt Tina own a Rotti name Tico. Once my aunt and her boyfriend Wayne was having an intense fight ... [Tico] jump through a glass window & pinned my aunt boyfriend Wayne to the ground just growling ... Now that's loyalty."

After he took the test, PETA balked on an offer to shoot a TV spot with Vick after his lawyers insisted they support his return to the NFL.

Peta is the group that gave 50,000 dollars to the LEF group. This group is a top ten terrorist organization in the US, according to the FBI. Fight is what these dogs do. It's not my game but don't put me on a jury and ask me to send him to prison. The real threat here is Peta and the Humane Society of the United States. Why don't all you eggheads do the research on these groups and then respond.

Honestly People    

Vick doesn't sound like an intelligent person and most sports fans knew that for sometime before this incident. However, most of you would punish this man for killing dogs more so than people aborting babies. This country has completely lost track of it's moral standards and sense of right and wrong. What Michael Vick did was horrible but where is the out cry against abortion or even child abuse? I hope that PETA is breaking some sort of confidentiality agreement by releasing some of this information. PETA is a destructive organization. PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANIMALS! GET A CLUE!!!
